Polish Town Thinks Winnie The Pooh Needs A Pair Of Pants
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
[**NEW STORY** ]Good morning. I'm David Greene. Winnie the Pooh may be a beloved storybook character, but he likely will not have a new playground named after him in one town in Poland. Some officials there complained about the bear's immodest clothing. One official said the bear doesn't have a complete wardrobe and is half naked, which, he said, makes the pantless Pooh wholly inappropriate for children. Another official suggested a fully clothed Polish bear might be a better choice. Winnie, reaction?
