Winnie the Pooh Is Pooh-Poohed

by | November 22, 2014

Councillors in Tuszyn, Poland have insulted Winnipeg Winnie the Pooh. According to the CBC,

The tubby little cubby, based on an actual bear named after Winnipeg, was suggested at a meeting of the council in Tuszyn, a small town in central Poland, to be the face of a new public playground, according to media reports in the United Kingdom.

That prompted anger from some councillors, who called Pooh “inappropriate.”

“The problem with that bear is it doesn’t have a complete wardrobe,” said Coun. Ryszard Cichy.

Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman contradicts the Tuszyn town councillors,

“Winnipeg is a tolerant and accepting community, and I hope that Winnie continues to teach children about kindness and friendship for years to come.”

The CBC asks for your vote:

What do you think of the fuss surrounding Winnie the Pooh being pants-less?

  • Those Polish town councillors may be on to something.
  • Hey, don’t be dissing our beloved Winnie the Pooh!
  • Oh, bother! Much ado over Pooh.
  • Seriously? He’s a bear!

“Seriously? He’s a bear!” is winning.
