The B'ar
« on: February 07, 2011, 08:33:11 AM »
So I've gone through many posts in this forum and read through the Dudespaper and the Dude de Ching and it seems to me that most people have misinterpreted the wisdom of The Stranger.  When pontificating to the Dude that "Sometimes you eat the b'ar, and well, sometimes the b'ar, well, it eats you," the Stranger was not referring to a place to attain Caucasians, but to mammals of the family Ursidae, or Bears, which in the dialect of where the Stranger hails sounds like "bar."  Sorry to disappoint any bar-eating enthusiasts.

I always thought it was a double entendre.  At first you're supposed to think "bear" and his accent makes it sound bar, but on a deeper level it could also be bar (as in alcohol) and a pertinent example of the dangers of excess.

From what is Dudeism trying to liberate us?Thinking that's too uptight.

To what state of being is Dudeism trying to bring us? Just taking it easy, man.

By what means does Dudeism attempt do this? Abiding.

Given that they were sitting at a bar, I subscribe to the "BAR theory." Though the Stranger says "... and sometimes the bar, wal, he eats you." Notice "HE," not "IT" ...eats you.

It should be noted that people sometimes refer to inanimate as things "he" or "she;" i.e., "our ship, SHE's A fine vessel."

I'd like to put my two cents on this.

I lived in texas for over 15 years, and I've been all around the south east. I've never heard any dialect that would misinterpret 'bear'. 

He is deffinatley saying bar.  If that is to mean the bar at which we drink at, or the bar in which stakes are raised; is up to you.

As to why he calls the bar a 'he', well dude, we just don't know.

could be he has a bit of a sense of humor.

The Dude also says BAR when he reapeats it later. He doesn't have a crazy dialect accent or whatever.

One who is a Dude must before all things keep constantly in mind...the fact that he has to take it easy.

Well since the old saying is "sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you" I'm betting we can chalk it up to his accent.
I was aware of the saying long before the B L came out.

there may be an old saying about a 'bear' , but it still doesnt convince me.  Maybe the Coen brothers screwed up, or deliberately put this in to keep us talking about it.

His accent has nothing to do with it.

Most times the old saying is repeated with the pronunciation "bar". Meaning bear.

Also for those old enough there was the ballad of Davy Crockett.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jxJLTs-iUM

Also I've heard the pronunciation of bear as bar many times in movies.

For instance....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7nqxIdROsI

I'm telling you it's Bear. It's not at all uncommon.
