Some businessmen at the Holiday Inn in Richmond, Indiana, got a little rowdy last week and, somehow, it appears that Oliver, a big stuffed bear the staff dresses up and keeps hanging around in the lobby, did something to annoy them. So they beat him up. From the Palladium-Times:
"We dress him in different outfits," Eberwein said. "The kids love him."
He's a little worse for the wear, but back at his post now, bandages and all. (Thanks to HotelChatter for the pointer.)
