WTF of the Day: Polish Town Debates Winnie the Pooh’s ‘Dubious Sexuality’
- -

A small town in Poland is upset about Winnie the Pooh's genitalia - or lack thereof - and they do not want him exposing himself to their kids.

Council members in Tuszyn were recently discussing potential mascots for their playground when one of them suggested the pants-less cartoon bear. Things just went downhill from there.

Here are some actual quotes from the conversation, according to "Croation Times:"

"It is half naked which is wholly inappropriate for children."

"It doesn't wear underpants because it doesn't have a sex. It's a hermaphrodite."

"This is very disturbing but can you imagine! The author was over 60 and cut his [Pooh's] testicles off with a razor blade because he had a problem with his identity."

The Keret House is the world's narrowest house designed by Polish architect Jakub Szczesny and situated in a 3-foot-wide gap between two buildings in Warsaw, Poland. As one can imagine, the wedged home is not without its shortcomings (no windows, ladder access only and very tiny appliances) but at least there's sunlight exposure, thanks to its semi-transparent, polycarbonate walls and ceiling. The Keret House will serve as a temporary home for traveling writers. Interested in moving in? Check out this video of the interior view.
