Shame

Apologize to Winnie!

Apologize to Winnie!

I feel embarrassed to admit that a few days ago my husband, Tippy Gnu, insulted Winnie-the-Pooh, on his blog. He called poor Winnie “sanctimonious,” “priggish,” and said he was shaped like a turd. He even said Winnie should be called, Winnie-the-Shit!

Winnie-the-Pooh, by E.H. Shepard, 1926.

Winnie-the-POOH has been loved by children for as long as I can remember, and I think my husband should apologize. He should apologize to everyone who has ever enjoyed a Winnie-the-Pooh cartoon, and he should apologize to Winnie himself.

He should also apologize to all of the characters in the Winnie-the-Pooh stories that we’ve all loved since we were children, such as Christopher Robin, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Rabbit, Gopher, Kanga, Roo, and Lumpy. Uh, not that I was ever a Pooh fan, myself.

So how about it, Tippy? Let’s hear an apology, or no macaroni and cheese for you tonight. Okay?
