The ink of my latest speech has barely dried, yet here I am once again dipping my quill in a creamy and surprisingly pungent mélange for this year’s edish. An utterly annoying task for which I receive very little in terms of respect and remuneration. However, it is my duty to inform you about the State of the Bear, the Hole and its Engagement – if only to keep investors elated and shareholders at bay.
Luckily this Dick can be delighted when forced to look back at 2020. There has been a favourable wind blowing through our otherwise rather damp headquarters. This is partly due to firing Stinky Samantha back in August, and partly because of fresh content production and prosperous website results.
Our statistics prove it: 2020 is the second most successful year in Bearhole history. We’re counting 1670 website visits and 26 original productions, easily the highest numbers since 2016. For these achievements I should give a warm shoutout and many credits to my beloved staff. Unfortunately I cannot do that, because the merit is indeed to be found entirely within myself. My decisive dicktatorship ignited such triumphs as:
– our new iconic logo;
– digital comics starring Bakkermans and Papzak Pjotr;
– Farty Pigmac in Congatronics;
– Gevederde Arend in Tempel Penetratie;
– the online flagship store ;
– a first Bearhole t-shirt in 5 years;
– unique street art productions.
In the end, what pleases me most is not this list of stupendous attainments, but my chunky paycheck at the end of the month. Combined of course with your continuous support, warmth and enthusiasm. My gratitude to you for keeping your Bearhole Engagement high throughout the year and beyond.
I raise my glass, not too high, but at mediocre height, reflecting the tempered ambitions I have for Bearhole in 2021.
Wishing you a crispy end of the year,
