Politicians call Winnie the Pooh ‘inappropriate for kids’ for being a ‘half-naked’ ‘hermaphrodite’

What kind of person hates Winnie the Pooh?

A town in Poland said no way to a “Pooh Corner” in its neck of the woods and the reasons why are head-scratching.

Councillors in Tuszyn were discussing a mascot for a newly built playground and someone recommended putting the friendly honey-sucker on the short list, according to Mail Online.

Gasp?

The meeting, which was recorded by one of the councillors and leaked to the press, started with a bit of friendly rivalry when a Polish bear character was presented as an alternative to Pooh.

“The problem with that bear is it doesn’t have a complete wardrobe. Ours is dressed from head to toe, unlike Pooh who is only dressed from the waist up,” Councillor Ryszard Cichy said, adding that Pooh is “half-naked” and  “wholly inappropriate for children.”

Well they have the half-naked part right, and it is definitely the wrong half, but it never crossed my mind until now. Talk about having your minds in the gutter.

Then things got a little weird.

One official is heard saying : ‘It doesn’t wear underpants because it doesn’t have a sex. It’s a hermaphrodite.’

Another female councillor reportedly attacked Winnie the Pooh author Alan Alexander Milne, saying: “This is very disturbing but can you imagine! The author was over 60 and cut his [Pooh’s] testicles off with a razor blade because he had a problem with his identity.”

No mascot was chosen for the children’s new play place, but Polish parents can rest soundly tonight knowing that the half-naked hermaphrodite – probably psychologically damaged from having his testicles cut off – won’t be in the running.

And I thought that grumpy ass Eeyore was the bad influence. Who knew?

Trust me on this, the sticky little bear is getting a bad rap.

To restore your original memories of Pooh, watch this classic 1994 song by Kenny Loggins, “House on Pooh Corner”?
