Is This Naughty?

Apparently the tagline of the new Live Action/CGI "Yogi Bear" movie is a bit offensive... Maybe I am way too innocent on this one. Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, and T.J. Miller comprise the live-action cast; Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake voice Yogi and Boo Boo, respectively. Yogi Bear is slated for a 3D release on December 17, 2010. However the poster contains the phrase "Great Things Come In Bears". I see it as a play on words as far as great things come in pairs, however the internets are not happy the double entendre the poster provides.

(Note: the word bear in the gay community means "to have hairy bodies and facial hair; some are heavy-set; some project an image of working-class masculinity in their grooming and appearance" and Yogi's eyes are a little too excited to stand behind Boo Boo)
