Street Art Department reveals new comic

In what CEO Dick Weyls proudly describes as “one of our most lucrative deals thus far”, Bearhole’s Street Art Department (B-SAD) reveals a fresh outdoor comic commissioned by the municipality of Rotselaar in collaboration with Treepack.

The brand new street art production consists of a previously unreleased 3-frame comic that was sprayed and painted on local electricity boxes during the month of June 2023 by B-SAD’s talented crew.

As a part of the Tour Elentrik project, these paintings aim to create a pleasant and inspiring outdoor environment while empowering citizen initiatives such as Den Ateljee.

Sharing the bill
It is still unclear which type of remuneration Weyls has negotiated for this latest commission. Experts say the fee might amount to a staggering €25,00. However, taking travel expenses into account, this compensation can hardly cover the vast financial deficit Bearhole has accumulated over the past decade, despite ventures into digital currencies and suspected greenwashing strategies.

On a related note: Bearhole’s CEO, unreachable for further explanations at the time of writing, is rumoured to be working hard on a stock market index entitled BEAR 20, representing 20 stocks of Bearhole’s best selling products.

“We will be taking no unnecessary risks”, explains Rundfunk in a brief press statement. “Flying itself is tricky enough, considering the state of our planes. Seriously, have you seen those wrecks? Now, with this virus coming into play, that’s just too much to handle.”

CEO Dick Weyls is surprised about the measures, when asked for a quick reply. “Virus? That’s the first thing I hear about it” reports the strong man behind Bearhole. “But for me, safety comes first. That’s why I’ve been quarantining myself in Hawaii for the past six months.”

Weyls does confirm he will be taking extra precautions for his staff as well. “I’m urging Bearhole employees to work from home these coming weeks. We’ll be further assessing the situation very closely, on a week-to-month basis.”

State of the Bear: CEO recaps 2019

Dear peasants,

During these last hours of 2019, many of us feel as if the year has flown by. I can confirm you it has not. A year is a measure of time, and has no physical abilities. And even if it had: there is no problem with a fast-paced year. Certainly not if it consisted of solid work, bold decisions and goals achieved. Sadly, none of this is the case for Bearhole.

As you may have noticed, we’ve tried to stay below the radar this year. Early on in 2019 our strategical unit calculated that a regular or even a minimum amount of output would have a negative impact on our long term societal goals. With your wellbeing in mind, we’ve limited our posts and creative releases to a bear minimum.

Do not take this the wrong way. When output is low, it means an organisation is working hard behind the scenes: creating new concepts, drafting comics, engaging with the field. In general, that is; we did none of this, but you should be aware that it happens.

So how can Bearhole start the year fresh? I’ve studied this question with my fellows at the Brookings Institute, and let me get right to the conclusion: 2020 should be more about me. More than ever, our enterprise needs a strong Dick on top of things. The old, flexible horizontal structures where every employee is equal are outdated. I’m therefore pleading for more work in silo’s.

Organisational issues aside, I’d like to leave you with warm wishes and a message of gratefulness. Without you I wouldn’t be the Dick I am today. Confident, fresh, sometimes flabby, other times hard. Not always a Dick full of confidence: at times I’ve felt very small this past year. But always remember: a small Dick is a Dick nonetheless.

Kind regazza’s,

Dick Weyls

Bagelgate: Dick in trouble?

Controversy galore at Bearhole after CEO Dick Weyls orders an excessive amount of bagels.

By reporter Bobby Rundfunk

It turned out to be another eventful day at the Bearhole headquarters last Monday. Without having any clue, CEO Dick Weyls ordered an uncomfortably large amount of bagels, thereby threatening the enterprise to go bankrupt within the blink of an eye.

Dick Weyls explains the mishap to the webcrew: “For my afternoon snack I was browsing the web for some ideas. I stumbled upon a nearby snack shop, and decided to sent Gargaloth (Bearhole’s transport owl, red.) for some bagels. Unfortunately, Garge flew into a barbed wire fence and died on the spot. So I had to order my snack online, which turned out to be an even bigger nightmare. Instead of ordering 5 bagels, I appear to have ordered 500 kilo’s.”

A clearly disappointed Dick admits he regrets his actions: “All I wanted was a tasty afternoon snack. I never planned on ordering those five truckloads of bagels. This delivery means we will have to revise our annual snack budget.”

On the rumor that Bearhole might face bankruptcy, Dick remains calm and clear: “Listen guys, bankruptcy is out of the question here. We have never even thought about it. At least, I haven’t. To be honest, I have only been thinking about bagels.”

The unfortunate mishap, referred to as ‘Bagelgate’ by many, leaves Bearhole with a clear objective: turning the current snack overload into a win-win situation. For this, a so-called Bagel Action Plan (BAP) was launched. The company contacted a wide array of NGO’s in order to cooperate and export some bagels to countries who need them the most.

Dick: “I am proud to see that our BAP initiative is working. This Friday, Brundfunk Airlines will send 100 kg of bagels to Babidwana, our partner country in the South. One bagel might not mean much to us, but for some it is the difference between life and death.”
