Workers’ compensation ruling says victim was employee at time of attack
Let’s be civil.

Stoned to the Bear-Bone Compensation

In a case that astounded the whole nation
A Judge made a bizarre rationalization
If you show up to work stoned
and then by a Grizzly get owned
You’re entitled to Worker’s Compensation!

The boss claimed the pothead wasn’t legally employed.
It was a claim that the Judge would later declare void.
Then the stoner took the stand,
With marijuana card was in hand,
As a smoked breakfast snack that bears really enjoyed!

When the Judge finally looked at the facts of the case
He got a cross-eyed mellowed out look on his face
The employee was dedicated,
He got ursinely masticated.
He was a hard bitten budhead who’d be hard to replace.

So workers don’t take caution about what you’re doin’
Just get high before you do your paycheck pursuin’
You can smoke all you please
And throw caution to the breeze
‘Cause you’ll even get paid if you’re chow for a bruin!

1 - They should have surveillance cameras in the park.
2 - Employers should stop the practice of paying people under the table so they can hire illegal immigrants off the books.
