Landlord Bear is an advice animal image macro series featuring photoshopped images of the North American brown bear (a.k.a. Grizzly bear) wearing a royal crown and various captions poking fun at unethical behaviors and rhetorics stereotypically associated with a greedy landlord.
On October 2nd, 2014, the Facebook group “Landlord Bear” was created with a photoshopped image of a Grizzly bear wearing the crown of King George XII of Georgia (shown below). As of September 28th, 2015, the Facebook page has garnered more than 2,430 likes.
On the same day, a meme generator page based on the same image of the bear, cropped in the style of a square-dimension image macro, was posted to Imgur under the title "Landlord Bear."
The meme has since spread to other image-sharing platforms and meme generator sites, including Imgur and Quickmeme. On September 25th, 2015, The Daily Dot interviewed the creator of the bear in character about his origin:
I am just a simple hardworking Landlord who built himself a small multinational empire of caves and condos with his bear hands. Those bear hands being the Arthur K. Sherwood Construction Company, LLC. That’s a lot of hands. That is like 75 hands. All attached to tenant bears who I pay a fraction of their salary back to so they can afford to pay their own landlord’s rent. But to answer your question, yes--only stupid people and muskrats forget to inherit their money.
