Writing Prompt: Graduation Bear

CreateacaptionGraduation Day. Aaah. Memories in the making. As the school year winds down, maybe some of you guys are graduating from middle school, and moving onto high school? Or graduating from elementary school and moving onto middle school? Or in my case, giving myself a pat on the back for just having made it through another crazy year!

Well, as I was walking around my local party store shopping for a birthday card, all the graduation decorations got me thinking. It also gave me an excuse to dress up my favorite bear. What do you suppose he is thinking?

Here's my caption.

Bear: The diploma is nice, but I sure I hope I got some cold, hard cash in those cards!

Give it a shot, and let me know what you imagine he's thinking. Leave your Caption in the Comments below.

    maybe one day a kid will take the stuffing out of me and the only thing left will be the diploma and then put it for my honor of death and nothing is written in it

    I would think the bear said, “I have finally graduated college! I’m so happy. I’m so smart that I could be rich and prove that Yogi Bear is dumber than me. I wonder if Yogi Bear is smart?”

    Perhaps he’s thinking, “Ahh. I’m going to miss high school, but I look forward to college! I also look forward to my graduation party–we’re having lobster!”
