Who had nunchuck bear in 2020 bingo?
While humans have been isolating to control a pandemic, animals are out there putting the hours in to take over the world. A video has been making the rounds on social media of a bear mastering the art of nunchucks, and I can't decide if we should be concerned or if the ursine is the hero we need during this uncertain time.
In an undated video from the Yagiyama Zoological Park in Japan, Tsubasa, a four-year-old black bear can be seen spinning what appears to be an enrichment toy similar to nunchuck over its arm and head. Honestly, people train for years to look as advanced as this animal. Explanations don't do it justice—you have to see this to believe it!
Here he is again, working out his three-section-staff skills on his way to nunchuck domination.
The bear, the hottest things since murder hornets, has grabbed a lot of attention across social media, with some hilarious results.

Murder hornets, meth gators and now nunchuck bears. Its like the planet is mad or something. Its fine. I probably just worry too much.— Stu Stinkle (@StuStinkle) July 13, 2020
Turns out this isn't the first time bears have displayed martial arts skills. Another bear in Japan has been showing his Kung Fu Panda fandom for years, putting on a Bōjutsu (staff fighting) school for over 10 years. According to comments on the video, the bear is self-taught ... so, yeah, claws and insane strength aren't enough—they are evolving their skills.
Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting...
I wonder what 2020 will bring us next? Killer butterflies, bird bombs (oh wait, that's already happening), sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads? Hang on to your hats because this year is going full-on Jumanji, and anything is possible.
