Friday October 14th was Winnie the Pooh’s 90th birthday. (I wrote about his birthday a few years ago here.) Below is what greeted me at the dinner table on Friday night. It brought hilarity and sudden clarity.
I think I know how I should vote…
Winnie-the-Pooh for President
Piglet for Vice President
Tigger for Secretary of State.
Winnie-the-Pooh promises “Honey in every pot.”
Piglet declares, “I know it seems easy, but it isn’t everyone who could do it.”
Tigger shouts effusively, “A bounce in every step.”
That’s more positive than my choice, which is Grumpy Cat.
Not that I get to vote, because I’m not American. I wish that meant I got to miss all the political wrangling.
This is probably a better suggestion than my FB post his morning about rules for the upcoming debate.
Pooh for President!! Count me in. It would be a kinder, gentler nation, indeed.
Sheri Dean Parmelee
Well, that’s a thought, Steve!
Janet Ann Collins
Love it! And much better than the other kind of poo.
I’d jump right on the band wagon and vote for him too, but we have a couple problems.
1.) he’s to old
2.) he has morals
3.) he’s not a natural born citizen of the US, he’s from England and names after a Canadian bear named Winnie.
Darn- for a few minutes we all got excited. ??
I’d be mostly concerned about Tigger for Secretary of State, because his go-to response for dealing with any situation is to bounce on people.
President of Russia: Mr. Secretary, what is America’s position on the current Mideast crisis?
Secretary Tigger: Woo hoo hoo hoo hoo! (BOUNCE!)
President of Russia: Get off me, you lunatic! (Although I imagine he’d probably shout it in Russian.)
