On this day, a child was born

Or more properly, a bear:

Pooh - based on the bedtime stories by Alan Alexander (AA) Milne - first appeared in the London Evening News on Christmas Eve 1925 in a story called The Wrong Sort of Bees.

You know, he doesn't look 80...


A little extra weight has its uses. Have somemore pie and Merry Christmas to you.

I bought my daughter the complete works for Christmas- but so far she is more interested in the sparkly windmill I also get her at the $2 shop.

Yes, well, Disney's ability to take any story you actually enjoy reading to your children and turn it into something that makes Barney almost seem preferable is well documented. I can only hope that the Milne estate made a shitload of cash out of it.
