I Wonder Who Da Bear Is?

When we got to Peter's mother's house last Sunday, we parked our car a few feet away from this really large red Cadillac from the 80s. I got out of the car and read the car's license plate out loud.

"Hmmmm. Da Bear. Who's Da Bear?"

Peter says, "Shut up! Don't say anything. Don't look at it."

Peter's old neighborhood is in the area of the Bronx called "the 'hood." This basically means that if you look someone in the eye in this area of the Bronx, he may or may not decide to come up to you and punch you in the mouth. It all depends on his mood, or if his dog won that fight the night before.

But I say, if you get a license plate that has "Da Bear" on it, you're just asking for it.
