In Game of Thrones season 7 episode 6 During an epic expedition in the North, the red priest Thoros of Myr
is attacked and injured by a wight bear. Then he says to Beric Dondarion "I just got bit by a dead bear" and adds "Funny old life".
Does this remark have a special meaning?
If it were Jorah I could see how it's funny since he comes from Bear Island, but I don't remember any mention of bears in relation to Thoros. Anything in the books maybe?
