Pleasure bears

The Victoria Clipper had a duty free shop onboard similar to what you'd see in an airport. During each trip they'd advertise the products available—untaxed liquor, cigarettes, and perfume, as well as souvenir-type items. On the return trip, after dinner, the announcer got on the speakers and invited us to all come and visit the "internationally-renowned Victoria Clipper duty free and souevenir shop," which got some light laughs from the passengers. "We've got sweatshirts, T-shirts, hats, and even a variety of stuffed animals for your pleasaure." The table across the aisle appeared to be a mother and three daughters, and they all giggled pretty hard at that. I stopped trying to hold it in.

My photographer companion dared me two shiny Canadian dollars to go back and ask for more details on the pleasure-bears. I declined.
