I recently hit 1,000 followers on twitter (hold your applause). To mark the “occasion” I decided to make a new Bears gif to thank everyone for their poor decision making skills. I wanted to create something that encapsulated not only my feelings toward the number on my twitter profile (not that I don’t appreciate everyone who chooses to follow me, I do, I’m just not overly concerned with the number), but the feelings most of us have towards the Bears “accomplishments” much of the time as well. “Oh, you scored outside of garbage time? Yay.” “A victory against the Houston Texans? Great.” “Mitch Trubisky looked semi-competent? Woo-hoo.” “You made the expanded play-offs at 8-8? Fantastic.”
And this was the result:
I think I kinda nailed it, though the Futurama reference does some of the heavy lifting. Really though, thanks to everyone who’s followed me, and to everyone who reads these One Stop Shop articles. I may be snarky, but I really do appreciate y’all.
You can download the gif above, or you can use it on Twitter using the gif function by searching “Chicago Bears Meh”. It may or may not be searchable on other platforms, depending on the service they use. Gif responsibly my friends.
And as always, if you have an idea for a future OSS, feel free to share it in the comments. If I use your idea, I’ll credit you in the article. And if you’d like to share any of your own illustrations or edits, post em’ up! I’m always down to see what people create, and I bet a lot of other folks are too. Bear Down everyone.

EDITOR: We’d like to make this whole ‘new Bears’ GIF for every thousand followers’ a thing, so if you’re on Twitter, give Will a follow!
