We Have Heard the Joyful Sound: "Bieber Saves!"

"When you find yourself in danger, when you're threatened by a stranger, when it looks like you will take a lickin..."

Yes, these are the opening lines of Super Chicken's theme song, and I could sing the whole thing for you...which is a sad, True Truth all on its own...but we may need to rewrite the lyric so particular words rhyme with "Bieber."

Yes, Canada's answer to Britney Spears has been credited for coming to the rescue of a Russian fisherman.

Yes, this is a journalistically-documented story, reported by to Reader's Digest, at least.

Yes, it seems a Russian fisherman was having a bad day. Not only had he not made a significant catch, but he was in the process of being mauled by a bear. ("Oh great...what ELSE could go wrong?!?")

Yes, the bear was causing a fair amount of damage to the wannabe fish-catcher's self esteem, not to mention his torso and legs, when his cell phone rang.

Yes, the fisherman's phone...not the bear's.

The ringtone was Justine Bieber's song, Baby.

Yes, as might be expected, the unexpected noise caused the bear to pause its attack. He listened for a bit, then turned and ran off like he was being chased by a pack of rabid mothers-in-law.

In unrelated news, studies have shown that Russian bears exhibit a high degree of sophistication in musical taste.
