Smokey Bear is younger than John McCain.
Yep. It’s Kermit the frog and Casper the ghost but there ain’t no “the” in this bear’s name.
(Incidentally, Jerry Reed – who played alongside Burt Reynolds and fictional wife-beater Jackie Gleason in those godawful “Smokey and the Bandit” movies – died a few weeks ago. He was a hair younger than John McCain.)
