‘Bare’ or ‘Bear’?

Bear With MeI see these used wrongly quite often. Avoid errors with this simple rule: bare means not clothed (people) or covered (objects). For everything else, use bear.

Hence the joke: I walked into a bar, bear with me. No really, there was a bear with me.

So, unless naked, think grizzly.

bare bear

Exeunt, pursued by a bear.
