Pooh Is Dangerous!

    Last week, my sister asked me to go to see Winnie the Pooh with her. I agreed as long as she consented to come see , Cowboys and Aliens with me. She said she wanted to see it anyway….So I was stuck.

     As we approached the ticket booth I felt my palms get a little sweaty as I realized I was going to have to tell the teenage ticket sales girl that I wanted tickets for the kiddie show. I handed her my money and felt slightly cheated by the fact that I was paying full price for a movie that was only half the length of every other show in the theater. But you can’t fight city hall as they say; So  I bought my Blue-ras-cherry slushy and my raisinets and prepared for an hour of cartoon frivolity.

     Little did I know Winnie the Pooh is dangerous!  Something happened to me in that show. I think I was hypnotized by subliminal messaging somewhere between the loss of Eeyore’s tail and the fight against the Backsun! I haven’t been able to stop looking up Pooh quotes since! They keep rattling around like fluff in an understuffed pillow!…See?!? I find myself going to the internet and looking up new Pooh thoughts  compulsively. I don’t know what I am going to do!

     Anyway I now realize that Pooh is a philosopher on an equal plain with Socrates and Plato and he makes better use of multi-media. Here is my favorite quote so far…

When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.
— Pooh’s Little Instruction Book, inspired by A. A. Milne

Go ahead and see if you can find a better quote for an inspiring writer!

    Thanks for sharing, Pastor J. 🙂

    Given that my heart seems equally shared between Tweety Bird and Pooh, I am afraid I can’t give an unbiased statement at this time. Do accept my humblest apology.

    Oh Bother! 🙂


  2. I told you Winnie the Pooh was cool!!! All these years you looked at me like I was a nut job!!! 🙂 He doesn’t trump Jesus however….but Pooh is cool!!!
    Your loving and aparently eye opening Sisiter!

  3. Ha, ha!!! Nate and I went to see ‘Cowboys and Aliens’…. Hmmm, I wonder if I should now make him come see Pooh with me? It does look SO cute! 🙂

  4. I love this. Love that God was there with you as you watched that Pooh movie and now has you hooked on Pooh quotes. I watch a lot of kids movies. A lot. I appreciate the ones that have messages to them, (And if you can find quotes, that’s really great too!)
    God bless you and your pooh quotes and your writing for Him!
