Winnie the Pooh Held for Robbery?

12 Aug

As if it’s not bad enough that Tigger’s always getting in trouble, now Winnie the Pooh’s getting into the act! Yahoo! News reports:

Japanese police have arrested a 20-year-old man who attacked and robbed two people after they stared at his Winnie-the-Pooh costume, officials said on Tuesday.

Masayuki Ishikawa was hanging out on a Tokyo street corner after midnight last month while wearing the cuddly costume, accompanied by two friends dressed as a mouse and a panther, when he took offence at being stared at, police said.

I would not be surprised to find a mouse in the Hundred Acre Wood, but a panther? Bit of a stretch perhaps. Or then again, one wouldn’t expect kangaroos there either.

Christopher Robin could not be reached for comment.
