The phrase is used in various ways usually by teeneagers and 20 somethings who automatically, subcociuously add a toutch of 'trendiness' to thier sentances. For instance: "Like, let's get outa here!"

    Thought you might be interested to know that my dad, Al Corban, who is 87 years old and was a long-time trucker and driver says he originated the term "smokey" and by the same action originated the term "bear". In Montana, where he was operating for most of his life, there was a hauling job in which timber was being taken out of a National Forest area. Because of that the Forest Service had people checking the trucks to see that they were meeting all the standards. In fact, they could issue tickets and fines. The truckers would call each other when one was spotted somewhere and warn others about their presence. Since they wore the standard uniform with the "Smokey the Bear" hats, Dad started talking about them on his radio as "Smokey Bears" or, as it was quickly shortened to, "Smokies",a "smokey" or "Bear(s)". As time went on the term naturally got picked up and applied to any mobile law officer or any officer in general.
