Hate the pun, love the image. It's like the overall ludicriousness of the image is lessened once a "reason" for it is provided. The difference between this and a Hess is that Hess's stuff is never very funny or witty on it's own, sans text. This picture can stand on it's own.
That's a very interesting simplification of a bear's form. Like, the two half-circles for the face work really well, I think. Showing a little fur in the outline, but keeping the paw all Powerpuff Girly-simple. Innerestin stuff.
