    Here’s another Poo vs Piglet fable for y’all. It explains the Oil War in simple terms that even a grownup can understand.

    (And it also cites “et tu Brute”, from /Julius Caesar/ by Shakespeare!)

    My friend posted this the other day as
    “WH1N1E the Pooh”

    Since Disney put Poo and Piglet already through their manger and drained everything original and fun out of the books, there’s nothing left anyone could do to them anyway.
    (interesting copyright case between A.A. Milne and Disney, btw)

    Any pig stupid enough to hang out with a carnivore is a Darwin award candidate anyway.

    It’s about time that one-track minded, prick bear thinks of something besides honey.

    Saw this yesterday and see fit to repeat my comment: No ending quote and misspelled expletive.

    Be on the lookout for jokes that start with “Something something when pigs fly…” followed by some expository material and ending with the explanation being “Swine flew.”

    I expect to see it on Leno by Tuesday.

    ‘Member when you told someone you’d do something “when pigs fly”? A’ight, now’s your chance. Swine Flu.

    “hundreds of years ago, they said the only way a black man would be president would be if pigs flew, and look at that, one hundred days into his presidency and swine flu!”

    @3: Well, the expletive ain’t so bad – consider it a vernacular variant employed for added punch – but the missing quotation mark at the end does spoil the effect a bit.

    Pooh & Piglet are off-limits. Get that?

    Fail for no closing quotation marks. (Damn, you Photoshop wizards need to take a fucken writing class!) Win, however, for the terrific bear-vernacular “fucken.”

  13. retchdog says:

    It’s an excerpt. Pooh’s paragraph might follow on the next page, hence no closing quote on this sentence.

    Here…I took the liberty of “correcting” it:

    With PHILIPB. You touch Pooh, you have to deal with me.

    That particular spelling variant is not uncommon here in the Antipodes. If it helps, think of it as dialectal.

    Teufelaffe: Damn, you Photoshop wizards need to take a fuckin’ lesson in kerning.
