OMG Winnie-The-Pooh Is Actually A Girl

Pooh truthers have uncovered Winnie's deep dark secrets.

You're all familiar with this friendly, pantsless, honey addict, right?

Well, what if we told you that everything you thought you knew about Winnie the Pooh was a LIE?

According to a new book, Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World’s Most Famous Bear, the semiliterate bear is actually NOT British. She's Canadian.

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

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.

Finding Winnie's other big bombshell: WINNIE IS NOT A DUDE. She's a lady bear.


So there you have it: Canadian, female, and a terrible honey addict. POOH DREAMS = SHATTERED.

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?
