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.
