Poorly Prepared Polar Bear is an advice animal image macro series featuring a picture of a polar bear in a helmet made out of a garbage pail and various captions characterizing the bear as an absent-minded individual. Upon its introduction via 9GAG in late October 2016, the advice animal character spawned a handful of jokes illustrating humorous situations for which the bear is hopelessly unprepared.
The still image of the polar bear comes from a video posted by Mmovies21 on August 30th, 2015 that finds a polar bear playing with the bucket on its head. Buzzfeed covered the video on September 24th, 2015.
On October 29th, 2016, screenshots of the story was tweeted by @RelatableQuote and gained over 8,000 retweets in two days. The following day, 9GAG user stroop_wafel posted it as an Advice Animal with the caption "Brings a Knife To a Gun Fight." The post gained 22,155 points in one day.
Following stroop_wafel's post, Poorly Prepared Polar Bear became a popular trend on 9GAG, as users debated the quality of the meme and what it should be called. Many users claimed the meme was forced,  while others debated if it should be called "Noob Bear" or "Bearly Prepared Bear."
