Feel also free to substitute “Y” with anything you’d like, even with “why”. Make the story sensational!

From Neatorama, Let Me Play You The Song of My People: I wish I knew the story behind this picture. It went viral in Russia a little over a year ago, but it may be much older than that. Russia makes sense as a point of origin, though. When it’s that cold and snowy in Moscow, a harpist will both stay warm and draw attention by busking in a bear suit. And to own both a harp and a perfect bear suit, you have to get out and work every day. At least that’s the story from the shallow reaches of my imagination. Can you come up with a better one? Go deeper. Go beyond the literal. Who is the bear? Why the harp? How did they get here? Who are they playing for? Is this a metaphor? Write the story, go!
