Nightmare fuel

 

When it comes to anything outdoorsy and fire safety-related, you can count on seeing Smokey’s likeness with a message to remind us that one person’s campsite is another animal’s home:

On second thought, maybe let some of those fires rage to kill the obviously inbred animals on the right.

 

And Smokey is pretty savvy when it comes to Twitter. He doesn’t just post social media messages haphazardly. He does public relations strategy:

Babes that will taste delicious in his jowls.
