OMG Winnie-The-Pooh Is Actually A Girl

Pooh truthers have uncovered Winnie's deep dark secrets.

Posted on

Pooh was based on a real-life black bear cub purchased by a Canadian vet from a trapper in 1914.


The vet named the bear Winnie after his native Winnipeg. He brought the bear with him to England, where Winnie served as a mascot for his regiment. (No word on Piglet.)

The vet eventually left the bear with the London Zoo, where a little boy named Christopher Robin would often visit the bear. That boy's dad? A. A. Milne, the author of the Winnie-the-Pooh book series.

What do you think, tho? Do you believe the hype? Or are you, too, a Pooh TRUTHER?

Is Winnie the Pooh a boy or a girl?
