Government representatives in Poland have pooh-poohed efforts to use Winnie the Pooh as the official mascot of a town playground.
According to The Croatian Times, local officials will not allow the beloved Disney character to grace a poster near the park due to his “dubious sexuality." We're not making this up.
"The problem with that bear is it doesn’t have a complete wardrobe,” says Councillor Ryszard Cichy. “It is half naked, which is wholly inappropriate for children.”
In Winnie the Pooh's defense, he is wearing more articles of clothing than most bears out there.
Also, he's a cartoon.
