Pooh Urges Eeyore To Concede Election. It's all going down at the Hundred Acre Wood.

hee hee hee! Though I do wonder holgate, why that website is using Disney illustrations when just about every Pooh enthusiast would prefer the drawings of E.H. Shepard?

That's a stunningly good parody. I could've been reading something straight from A. A. Milne.

Avogadro: the Disneified Pooh is much better known than the original illustrations. Probably easier to find pictures, too. And, finally, possibly even out of respect for the original art. :-)

Tell me about it, Avogadro: there are two Shepard prints on my wall. I've already promised myself not to impose ersatz DisneyPooh on my kids.

Oh, I love the parallel between Bush and Pooh... Too funny.. whoever wrote it.. props to them for the extremely clever piece of writing:

"Pooh, who is, by his own admission, a Bear of Very Little Brain"

But didn't the donkey win the popular vote?

Hi, person responsible here (blame referrer tracking software). Only wanted to say, Disney illustrations are much easier to find than the originals, and yes, cCranium, I do have a certain respect for Mr Shephard that I don't have for The Disney Corporation.

Glad everyone enjoyed the story though - you may not have checked the archives, but it's actually a followup to this earlier story.

I love the way we attract creators of work to Metafilter like flies to flypaper ... moths to a flame ... or pooh-bears to hunny.
