Do you know Misery Bear? According to his website, Misery Bear is the "loneliest, saddest and drunkest bear in the world. Nothing ever goes his way, no-one gives him the time of day, and he’s just trying to get through his depressing life in one piece. He drinks too much, hates his job, and can’t get a girlfriend."
That said, Misery Bear is awfully cute. Especially when he's wearing his glitter-ball headband and bouncing around on a big plastic ball (like in this video). Check out this clip from the BBC's Comic Relief drive where Misery meets supermodel Kate Moss... and, um, gets wasted with her.
