In the next issue of Ballistic Magazine, FUBeAR takes on some long-range targets. Be sure to pick up the April-May 2002 issue, on sale now at outdoorgroupstore.com.
It is time to introduce the new official Ballistic Magazine mascot, FUBeAR (foo-bear). Nobody is quite sure what attracted him to Ballistic headquarters to begin with. In hindsight, maybe we should have put all the food from the office kitchen into a scent free bag and hung it in a tree. But whatever the case, he is here to stay.
Meet FUBeAR, the Official Ballistic Magazine Mascot
He just showed up one day and told us he would be working for us. Since then, we have had our best people trying to figure out who he is. He refuses to provide any information–including name, rank and serial number. He just insists, “It’s above your paygrade.”
Following a request to the Pentagon, we’ve managed to secure a copy of his service records. We explained the situation and, oddly, they knew exactly who we were talking about.
Unfortunately, it’s all useless. It is so redacted it looks like a Rorschach ink blot. We all joke, in hushed tones, that it suits him, because he is pretty much totally nuts.
So…we have a new member of the team. But at least he lets us pay him in fish and beef jerky. To justify paying him, we have given him the title of Team Mascot.
So, what does this mean? It means that starting now you can expect to join FUBeAR in his escapades and antics in each issue of Ballistic Magazine.
Moving forward, every issue of Ballistic Magazine will carry a comic strip featuring our new mascot FUBeAR, providing his own brand of ineptitude and comic relief. Not only that, don’t be too surprised to see FUBeAR pop up in other areas as well, from the magazine to the website (and maybe more). You never know what he may get up to. He is a bear after all—not to mention a little crazy—so he can be hard to contain.
FUBeAR is the culmination of years of cartooning experience and more than a dash of off kilter thinking. For years I have imposed my special brand of creative inanity onto unsuspecting readers and now it is your turn. I do hope you enjoy FUBeAR as much as I enjoy creating him. We are very excited for the potential FUBeAR represents moving forward.
Keep your eyes open, there is no telling where this could go. Really. Like I said, he’s an insane little bear and he really is hard to keep track of. He is what happens when a teddy bear goes FUBAR. Hug your children.
