Officials In Poland Don’t Like Winnie The Pooh
According to Time.com, officials in a Polish town have opposed a proposition to name a playground after Winnie-the-Pooh due to the bear's unclear gender and immodest clothing. The topic was debated in a closed-door meeting weeks ago in the central Polish town of Tuszyn, but didn't get much media attention in Poland until recent days. Apparently, voice recordings of the meeting were leaked to the media in which officials complained that Winnie-the-Pooh is 'immodestly dressed and also lacks a clear gender'. However, now one of the Pooh Bear opponents has told a newspaper that he had been joking at the end of a discussion on a playground that had gone on too long.
