teddy bear love triangle

Yesterday, I just had to take a photo of this mural on the outside wall of the really cool candy/gift shop in Berkeley. Its image has always puzzled me. It appears two teddy bears are in an intimate embrace, while another teddy bear (gender of all parties indeterminate) is trying to pull one of the bears away. The bear is smiling, but under that smile is a heart filled with jealousy. Am I right or what?

Or, could be the person who painted this didn't give it much thought at all. The work order read "3 teddy bears, floating candy, store name, in vermillion," so the guy painted it and never looked back.
