Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

Speaking of names reminds me ... one of my sisters has four sons. The middle two are twins, and the eldest was about five or six when they were born. My sister asked him what he'd call the twins (after they were born) and he said, "Christopher and Robin". They're Christopher & Ryan, since my sister thought 'Robin' might not be so good for a boy's first name ...
Here we go again...yes Grynch, we don't want to hear your story again. We know, you had an encounter with twins (left and right hand).

Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

Ahh, stretching the mind to its limits...

So here's a theory: none of the other animals in the 100-acre wood were honey-eating. Kanga, Roo and Rabbit would have been foragers; Owl probably ate mice; Eeyore would have eaten thistles (hence his gloomy disposition); and Tigger was on cocaine. Christopher Robin's parents, being English, had presumably taught him enough about personal hygiene not to eat out of Pooh's honey pot, since Pooh was not much of a hand-washer and simply shovelled the stuff into his mouth with his paw.

Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

Had I known about this thread sooner, I could have helped answer questions about Pooh's mystique.

Pooh is a teacher of Taoism and has naturally mastered an ancient martial arts called Baguazhang. Notice that he never panics, hurries, worries, or even bothers to wear pants.

More about this can be found in an old book called "The Tao of Pooh" (# ISBN-10: 0140067477, # ISBN-13: 978-0140067477).

Thank you guys...I will have to evaluate which of the theories will hold water.

Re: question about Winnie the Pooh

I kinda want the nanny filter back, hahah...

Anyways. I just had a class where we dug through the Christopher Robin Milne dilemma, wow, what a life it must have been, exposed to all that fame. He dealt with it weirdly, but who can blame him. I wouldn't want to be constantly faced with myself as a 6yr old...oh, wait

Jake is totally the new Pooh.



back to Pooh, I think he does a good job messing with his own honey pot.

Darn it, interesting it certainly is..But noooo, don't take my childhood illusions away, pweese.

When you look at the real toys that inspired Milne (Shepard draw them identically as they were, you can see them in NY museum), they are so ragged and sad looking, too. But nice, real. All toys kids love become these sad looking characters, loved to bits and torn. Childhood is nicely sad, kids don't care for looking pretty and cheerful, nor their toys. I recall my brother talking to his lion for years, the lion was so incredibly masacred looking..
