pedobear the internet's child molester mascotPedobear is a hugely popular character who started on 4chan's /b/ board and now appears all over the internet. He looks innocent enough, but he's also a creepy child molester! Well, Pedobear has found his way into a coupon book ad for a Florida computer parts distribution business called "CP Distributor." CP is, of course, the 4chan shorthand for "child pornography.")

The story gets weirder, though. The ad may have been a designer's prank on the owner of CP Distributor, who happens to be a convicted sex offender. Maybe the designer -- identified only as a 40-year-old woman -- knew about this, and couldn't resist pranking the business owner. 40-something females aren't exactly /b/'s demographic, though, so perhaps she googled "CP," saw an image of Pedobear, and thought it would be neat to put in the ad.

Either way, this is Pedobear's most bizarre public appearance since a California police department accused him of being a mascot for actual child molesters.
