"Pedobear" Stars In Convicted Sex Offender's Ad

A Florida computer repair business with the unfortunate name “CP Distributor” paid $240 for an ad in a coupon book that was distributed earlier this month.
It also includes a graphic of a bear holding a laptop adjacent to the firm’s name (the “CP” is in a larger type size).
The company’s ad shows the firm’s computer cleaning and diagnostic services.
The bear pictured, though, is no ordinary mammal. It is actually “Pedobear,” an Internet meme that is shorthand for pedophiles, perverts, child molesters, child porn aficionados, etc. Pedobear, of course, is positioned next to the oversized letters “CP”--the acronym for child pornography.
The advertisement, it appears, was an inside joke by whoever designed it for America’s Favorite Coupon Book, which distributes monthly coupon books in various Florida counties.
The owners of CP Distributor, though, are not laughing. Especially since one of the firm’s principals, records show, happens to be a convicted sex offender who spent seven years in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 12.
