question about Winnie the Pooh

Seriously though, hear me out. Browsing through stores I sometimes see books, bagpacks and other random gear with Winnie the Pooh holding a honey jar. My question, why isn't anybody messing with his honey jar?

I couldn't come up with any other conclusion than Winnie being the biggest gangster...the "Don" so to speak and despite his deceiving smile, the other animals just know not to mess with Winnie. Could a devoted parent please enlighten me? Thanks.

Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

Listen Fool
A bear has a Tiger and a Pig as his 'bitches'

...... I'm ain't fooled by that Mike Tyson girly vioce he has..... and if he won't let the tiger eat the pig either... Ain't no way I'd be mess'n wit da Bear's Honey either.


Personally, I now think Winnie the Poo is some form of metaphor for "South Central LA Gangsters"....... Winnie holds ALLL the Honey* (*substitute narcotic of choice)

Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

He's a bear! Would you get between a bear and his honey?

Sure the illustrations make hime look cute, but he's a bonafide cold hearted killer in the flesh.

I'm not sure, he's always smiling and friendly, never showed any signs of aggression. I think he runs things behind the scene.

Unpublished edition during the swine flu scare shows his true nature.

I don't really think that it is in the best interests of any childs story to encourage selfish "Take" behaviour.

eg. (speaking of Bears) that little ragedy thieving troll "Goldy Locks". She basially stole the bears food...... and the bears messed her up and ate her !!!
(clearly I don't remember how the "Three Bears" story ends)

No one else wants the stinking honey. It's gross.

Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

Paddington bear's soft, he'd be nothing without the Browns!
Winnie the Pooh, now ... anyone who calls himself "pooh" and doesn't get laughed at is tough. I'm more concerned with Ee-yore, though - what's he on? He & Tigger should exchange 'medication' sometime ...

Sounds better than the "is surprised at the scene of the crime and does a runner!" ending with which I'm familiar ...

Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

I remember Winnie the Pooh as being very cunning but he's wise enough to act in a modest way. Doesn't he say "I'm a bear of very little brain and big words bother me"? Posters beware!
