Editor's Note: ** AND DID WHAT? What business did three men and two bears have at school? If ever a line merited follow-up... I’m guessing it was a presentation of some sort and not a threat of any kind. However, health and safety would never allow that today.
Unkle Alex and Aunt Lib are news to me. I have never heard either of those names in reference to relatives so I'm at a loss there.
