Does that mean Pooh is homeless as well? He couldn't keep up the payments on Pooh Corner? Bad mortgage, unemployment, poverty, and despair? Tell me it ain't so!

Perhaps if they employed the A.A. Milne character as a cute mascot for the dispossessed the public would start paying more attention to this issue.

I think it's some kind of protest statement; "life is pooh".

Even homeless people are kawaii in this country

Christopher Robin cut the cord did he, Pooh? Or maybe the rising price of hunny brought you into dire straits?

The Hundred Acre Wood has really gone downhill. I heard Christopher Robin is living in a boarded-up crack house, and Piglet shot Tigger over a pair of old shoes. Just sad.

This reminds me of when I was very small and growing up in Australia. Every summer we used to travel to our summer house by the sea-side. The trip involved driving down a long winding mountain road. Anyway, opposite one of the hairpin corners, there was a little cave. Some passerby had erected a little mail box and a sign that said "Pooh's Corner." I remember that for a number of years I actually believed that Pooh Bear lived there.

Moreover, despite the periodic cleanups of the mountain road (getting rid of graffiti, etc.), I seem the remember this signpost always being there. Oh, the memories of childhood.

I never fail to chuckle when someone tells me they love pooh or offer me a pooh cookie from TDL

That's just inappropriate, and hardly newsworthy.

I sort of hate to say this – so late in the thread, but isn’t this a picture about blue and white plastic sheeting, and not about Pooh at all? Am I missing something here?

pooh, sheet, what's the difference?

Even the bums like Kawaiii things! if that were anywhere else, it would be an empty 40 of whiskey peeking out of the sheets......oh japan, you gotta love it!!!

Bum, Pooh, sheet?

This thread sounds like playtime at my primary school.

TJRandom. Blue and white sheeting is not in the middle of the picture!
