    Shows two large bears standing outside the restaurant of the Zoological Society Gardens in the 'cool of the evening, when the public have gone'. One bear suggests that they steal a sandwich, but the other exclaims: 'What, one of their sandwiches? Oh, not for me thanky. You must be hungry!!'. This is an allusion to the notoriously stale buns purchased by the public to feed the bears at the Zoological Gardens.
