Christopher Robin Milne And His Winnie-The-Pooh.


Here is Milne's amusing explanation of Winnie's gender, from Winnie-The-Pooh, by A. A. Milne.
When I first heard his name, I said, "But I thought he was a boy?"
"So did I," said Christopher Robin.
"Then you can't call him Winnie."
"I don't."
"But you said..."
"His name is Winnie-ther-Pooh.
Don't you know what "ther" means?"
