Default The Origin Of Orangello's Melissophobia (Fear Of Bears)

OK, it comes up frequently and many of us poke fun at him for it, but as far as I know 'Gello has not divulged the real origin of his ursine phobia. OK, maybe it isn't fear, maybe just pure hot hatred, but you get the idea.

I'll go first. Goldilocks is "Gello's mother.

Lions and Tigers and LBNL, Bears, oh my! I can thoroughly understand his Bear-a-phobia, the first two arent indigenous to the USA so no worries about them but Bears are everywhere! They stink like Hogans Goat, dont brush their teeth and their table manners are atrocious!
