Looks like Poland is not a fan of the iconic Winnie The Pooh.
In the town of Tuszyn, Poland they were deciding on a mascot for its town playground, when the classic children’s character was suggested as a candidate. They decided to rule Winnie out, because he’s an “inappropriately dressed” bear of “dubious sexuality.”
Resident and councillor Ryszard Cichy apparently believes this about Winnie: “The problem with that bear is it doesn’t have a complete wardrobe. It is half naked which is wholly inappropriate for children.”
He wasn’t the only one that agrees with Cichy. Resident Hanna Jachimska, apparently blames Winnie’s creator, Alan Alexander Milne: “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.”
Some countries have strong opinions on some topics. You can’t mess with a children’s classic.
