Tabloid Thursday: Kung-Fu White-Claw Asiatic Brown Bear

Kung-fu Panda has more of a ring to it, but a headline from Weekly World News informs us that there is actually a kung-fu Asiatic brown bear in Russia. Sounds like a story for Tabloid Thursday!

The truth is somewhat less adorable and awesome than their leading image would have us believe:

From Weekly World News

In actual fact, the whole story is really about a video on YouTube of a bear playing with a stick. The bear is not exactly a kung-fu master, but it is actually somewhat impressive how well he controls the stick despite the lack of opposable thumbs.

To summarize: the bear does not actually know kung-fu, but he is actually cute.
