That was a joke. Let me tell you the reason why it is funny...
A bear walks into a bar...
A bear walks into a bar. He goes up to the barman and asks, "Can I have a large gin and.......... tonic, please?" The bartender replies, "Sure, but what's with the big pause?" The bear holds up his paws, looks at them, and says, "Well, I'm a bear!"
This is another "walks into a bar" joke, and also a pun. The critical part of the joke is the fact that pause sounds like paws when spoken (at least in American English in all of the places that I have lived).
