Love this from today's AP:

Bear skips veggies for chocolate in Calif. home

SAN ANTONIO HEIGHTS, Calif. (AP) — Deputies say a bear with an apparent sweet-tooth busted into a San Bernardino County home and gobbled up a box of chocolates from a couple's refrigerator.
Sheriff's Sgt. Tom Alsky says the couple arrived home Saturday afternoon, found the bear chowing down in their kitchen and phoned for help.
The bear fled before sheriff's deputies arrived.
Alsky says the animal appeared to have pushed aside vegetables in the couple's fridge and gone straight for the two-pound box of sweets.
He says the bear also tried to open a bottle of champagne but was not successful.

Are we sure that it was in fact a bear? Sounds like my husband. I love this story!
