The creator of Paddington Bear, Michael Bond, died at the spry age of 91.

Originally from the darkest Peru, Bond was found in Paddington Station by the Brown family.  Apparently, he was sent by his Aunt Lucy and Uncle Pastuzo.

In an interview, Bond said “”I came all the way in a lifeboat, and ate marmalade.”  Jesus, him and his goddamned marmalade.  

He lived with the Browns at 32 Windsor Gardens and frequented the nearby Portobello Road market, where he is respected by the shopkeepers for driving a hard bargain.  But in reality, they secretly hated the cheap bastard.

Man, did he get into some chicanery and monkeyshines!  Apparently, his 1st bath was a disaster.  He created chaos in the Underground (That’s British for “slave mines”) and even got lost on a shopping trip.

Man, this guy really wasn’t all there, was he…

Michael Bond

Bond did a lot of work with kids who suffered from Hypertrichosis (hair all over).  He often gave them girls’ coats and ugly-as-fuck hats.

On 10 February 1943, Bond survived an air raid in Reading. The building in which he was working collapsed under him, killing 41 people and injuring many more.

It is believed that this is why the Paddington Bear books are so filled with death and images of bloody corpses.

In the end he wrote 27 Paddington books.  He also wrote other book series, the Olga da Polga series and the Monsieur Pamplemousse series.  But who really gives a fuck about them?

This hit goes to: Morrigan’s Mirror!  (A quick reminder here, that’s Pirate’s team.  Nathaniel did not name hit ghoul pool team after his daughter.)Pirate is up to 70 points!

Happy pooling,
