Pedobear meme outs convicted paedophile in coupon book

It appears that one computer repair business owner in Florida could have done with brushing up on his knowledge of internet memes – after an image of the famous 4Chan ‘pedobear’ was inadvertently used in a company advert.

A rather unfortunate choice was made by a forty-something employee at the company who has also apparently never come across the innocent looking mammal, which is used to mock those who supposedly have a connection with paedophilia.

And if this wasn’t enough, the advert in coupon book also features the rather enlarged lettering “CP” in the title, which, unbeknownst to the company, is actually an acronym for ‘child porn’ in 4Chan slang rather than the intended ‘computer parts’.

Quite why a clip art pic of a cuddly bear was chosen to represent a computer repair firm is another mystery altogether. But it’s clear that this will likely be low down on the list of chastisements for this particular employee, with 120,000 copies of the March edition coupon book printed.

So if anything this appeared, at first at least, to be no more than a rather hilarious coincidence bound to be regaled by a number of 4Chan members.

However, under closer inspection from The Smoking Gun the story took another twist as it appeared that CP Distribution had inadvertently exposed itself to a rather more sinister reality.

This is because part owner of the CP Distributor business, Robert Dicks, is allegedly a convicted paedophile with prior convictions for sexually assaulting a 12 year old, so is undoubtedly less than happy about being outed to the public in such an unexpected way.

“We didn’t know anything about the bear or what it was when the coupon book was published,” said Dicks.

But it looks as though Dicks will now be well acquainted with the connotations and complications of ‘pedobear’ with the deluge of emails he has received asking why he has decided to parade his, erm, ‘lifestyle choice’ so proudly in a corporate poster.

Needless to say, the next issue of the coupon book will feature no bears of any description.
