Riddle of the day

Here’s a tough riddle I thought up, which is mine. Put your answers below, though I’m not sure if anybody will get this, but if anyone gives me the answer I’m looking for, they’ll get a copy of Faith vs. Fact, signed and with a cat drawn in it.

Here it is (it’s mine). . .

It’s just coming:

Why is Camelot like this bear costume?

That’s my riddle, which is mine. Answer will be posted about noon.

    It’s a silly place we shall not go there

    No one believes either is real.

    However, if the emphasis is on *this* particular bear custome versus any other costume, I’m missing something, except, of course, there are some costumes that could be mistaken for real and this one wouldn’t be.

      MOST bear costumes are like Camelot in the way I’m thinking.

        I was going to say the model looks like Robert Goulet. That would apply for MOST.

    Wearing this bear costume in public, like believing Camelot was a real place is Ursine of poor judgement.

      Because neither bears any resemblance to reality.

        Thinking Camelot is real and considering wearing a bear costume? Both things should give you paws.

    It rhymes with “Ham-a-lot”…

    The bear costume is so stupid it reminds us that any possible chances the Executive Branch of the government will ever resemble a romantic version of Camelot are long gone.

    Why is Camelot like this bear costume? They are both yours.

    I am assuming you own this and a Camelot model or such such like)

    It’s cute and kids love it because it’s fake, but a real knight or bear staring you down would be terrifying?

    It has a circle in its middle?

    It gives a person paws. Has no one heard the song?

      This is the winner. Contact me for the book.

          Hi Ant, It is kind of you to say so, but I can’t claim to be the winner. adavies2012 was the first to make the connection with the song which was what Jerry was thinking of, so well done to him or her. I was just trying to come up with bear-related puns but, as I always say, ‘a good pun is its own reword.’

    I’ve been dragging my pen around the table all night in a quest for the answer, but as expected, the caliber of your poser leaves my lancing a lot at empty air. Only a clever merle in my garden could answer it.

    They both have grizzly tails/tales.

    Because one has seen many a good knight out and the other has seen many a good night out by the looks of it!

    From the lyrics:

    Camelot! Camelot!
    I know it gives a person pause,
    But in Camelot, Camelot
    Those are the legal laws.

      If that is a line from the musical then it sounds like it’s the answer. I haven’t seen Camelot so I don’t know but that’s too neat not to be right.

    I don’t have about answer, but I do have a new theory about the brontosaurus, which is mine.

    Because it’s mostly light surrounded by darkness?

    Both should get lanced a lot?

    ***

    Artos is the old Gaulish word for bear and the celts had a bear-god or bear-goddess. So technically both the dude in the beard suit and Camelot are ‘Aurthurian’.

    If the costume were made from Harris Tweed then the link would be Richard Harris played Arthur in the film. But I very much doubt it’s Harris Tweed!

    Arthur is a derivitive of ursa. Also, I read somewhere that the mythical King Arthur wore bearskins to absorb the power of the beasts.

    Too much time in either becomes unbearable?

    Did the bear used to live in California?

    An “ex Cali bear”?
