It's a great story, but it doesn't end there. It should be mentioned that the bear was actually stolen from a neighbor. After a while, the man realizes that he can keep asking the bear to do more and more work. Further, the bear isn't smart enough to realize that the man is fishing every OTHER day, and only giving the bear HALF of the catch each day. One winter, while stoking the fire, cooking dinner, cleaning, repairing, the bear decides to go take a shit in the woods. In the process, he freezes up. The main waits, impatiently. Cursing at whoever invented bears in the first place. The moral of the story: Don't be surprised if free bears cause your windows to crash. (I'm really sorry. It was there and I HAD to go for it!)
Picture a house. Inside the house, a small man is doing his dishes. These dishes are full of stuck on, grimy food that's just been left for days. Not preferred at all! The small, timid man is quite frustrated. The water is hot, the soap gives his tiny hands a horrible rash, and overall the whole process discourages him from eating anything with a large amount of cheese melted over it. "If only there was a better way to take care of my housework AND enable me enough time to perform my day-to-day duties at my own leisure!", he'd constantly cry. Suddenly, a black bear entered his home. Distraught, he thought possibly though proper coaxing and rationalization, he could get the bear (who has MASSIVE paws!) to assist with his chore. The bear, stout and wearing a fine pair of eyeglasses, took a seat to discuss the problematic issues surrounding this tiny man's kitchen. "I'd be happy to help, on one condition" said the bear. "Fresh salmon, from the river, caught on a daily basis". The tiny man was elated to hear this, thinking "salmon is my specialty! If I were to reel in one silverback salmon friend each day for the bear's consumption, my problems would be extinguished and then I would be free to do as I wish!" They shook on it, and from that day forward, the bear was more than happy to assist around the tiny man's home with various cooking, cleaning, blending, flushing, scrubbing, painting, dry-walling, and even gardening! You'd be hard-pressed to find anything cuter than an adult black bear perched down in a garden, working a spade and squinting in the sun under a visor cap on his fuzzy head. That, my friend, is a plug-in effect.
