Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

@LiB

Yeah, on the surface he comes across as an affable and likeable character that loves his honey.

In reality, he's a gangsta homey that's really into his ho'(ney) so don't y'all be messin' wit him now dude

I'm not sure, he's always smiling and friendly, never showed any signs of aggression. I think he runs things behind the scene.
He left Winnipeg for London,good reason to smile

Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

the reason nobody messes with Winnie's honey is because he's teabagged the jar.

Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

Guys can you mess with some other story and leave this one alone?

Bears eat honey. Nobody else does. They'd would get diabetes.

My grandad was a beekeeper, he gave honey to his dog all his long 16 years, to keep his immunity up. Dog died late, but with diabetes.

Shepard was a fab artist. Disney killed Winnie the Pooh, makes me want to puke.

You just wait....


I am kiddin, people eat honey, sure. Actually, I can see pigs and donkeys eat honey too, Kanga could, Tiger, all of them. I think that in real world they aren't really interested. Tyapina, our dog ate honey, since that's what grandad gave her, it was a vegetarian dog, poor thing, but really lived long. Grandad too, till almost 100, so there must be something about honey..I am gona pour some over yoghurt right now.

But I agree with pp, Milne wrote this story...when, in 40s, right? There wouldn't probably be much hogging going on, stories for weren't supposed to be about stealing stuff..It's very ethical. So, nobody is gona snatch Pooh's pot. I love the poetry in the whole book.
