Over my DEAD mangy bearskin hide!

My fellow inebriates,

As you know, I have a deep and abiding love for Broker’s Gin and its most admirable Business Development Manager Julia Gale. Why, just yesterday morning I suggested we pour ourselves a gin & tonic for breakfast, only to have the idea shot down peremptorily by my killjoy parents. I imagine Julia, eight hours ahead of us in England, agreeing with me that it was not too early for gin, particularly given the daily, intense drama that surrounds the process of urging V out of bed and onward to school.

My conviction that Julia Gale and the chaps at Broker’s have my back and support all my hopes and dreams is what shocks me so intensely about THIS photo from my Twitter feed:

Broker's Gin on possibly bearskin rug OMG

OMG, right?

Is that really…?

Could it be…?

Is that a BEARSKIN RUG?

    I was so pleased to see that you are posting once again. Imagine my horror, however, when I saw this post! A bearskin! Who would do such a thing! Please be assured that our office is a bearskin rug-free zone, nor do we harbour any other animal products, other than the leather shoes I am wearing (not bear-based, I assure you). From what I can tell from the photo, although it was posted by head office, it isn’t one of our creations, and it isn’t from Canada, plus the neck hanger dates back at least six years. Methinks it is an image sent in by a fan in the dim and distant past, then reposted. So never fear, young bear; if it is a bearskin, it isn’t a Canadian one, so no gin-loving trapper is likely to appear at your door, in search of your fine pelt. In fact it isn’t even an American one so, whoever created this montage would have to travel a great distance. Relax, dear boy; have gin for breakfast; breathe a sigh of relief.

    Your friend and fan

    1. Jules, you have once again brought me joy! So good to hear from you and I assume we can resume our status as best friends (were we ever not?). Thank you so much for your reassurances about the bearskin rug. As you no doubt know, there are numerous bears at LBHQ and most of us are paranoid about all sorts of things. Being able to cross that rug off our list is a great relief. Now we can turn our anxieties to things like being shredded by gerbils and facing down the apocalypse!
      I certainly SHALL have gin for breakfast if I can get the bottle open.
      Love and kisses,
      LB
