Cuddling With A Stuffed Animal May Help Cure Your Depression (Seriously!)

Most of the “scientific studies” in the Daily Mail make me chuckle (new survey from a contact lens manufacturer says that 90% of people feel self-conscious about wearing glasses!) but this one — about low self-esteem, existential angst and stuffed animals — is worth serious consideration.

Mind Of Man: Why Can’t Men Have Teddy Bears?

A recent study by British hotel chain Travelodge has found that 25 percent of men take teddy bears on the road with them when they travel for business. These men report that their stuffed animals remind them of home and the significant others they have to leave behind. This is a shocking survey to many who believe that grown men shouldn’t tote around stuffed animals, as it betrays certain masculine gender rules. For one, men snuggle as a means to an end. Men snuggle in order to procure sex, or as payment for services rendered. Men are also encouraged to put away childish things more than women or, at least, their toys aren’t supposed to look like toys. Women are rewarded for holding on to the virginal innocence of youth, which comes in handy when raising a child. This is all a crap sundae, of course. Two scoops of crap topped with a crap cherry.

A Pink Teddy Bear Stole Perfect For Getting Snuggly

OK, so maybe 100-degree heat isn’t the right time to bust out the (faux) fur, but this baby pink stole made from a deconstructed vintage teddy bear is too adorable to pass up posting.

Cute Alert: Inside Out Teddy Bears!

Adorable! Boing Boing points us to photographer Kent Rogowski‘s weirdly cute portraits of teddy bears that have been turned inside out. According to Rogowski, “These bears, which have lived and loved and lost as much as their owners, have suffered and endured through it all.” In other words, they’re just like us, “revealing their inner core [so we] might we better understand our own.” I wonder what happened to my Pooh?
