    In Which Eeyore Hates Disney

    Eeyore knew this was coming. Everyone kept telling him to cheer-up; that things would get better. He knew the truth. Large corporations care about nothing but themselves. Eeyore thinks this is almost as bad as the time Disney made him take Prozac because he was too much of a downer for the kids. Eeyore thinks of A. A. Milne and for just a moment a smile crosses his face. He is happy for a glimmer of a minute as he imagines the Old Man is alive to see this. Last time he got mad he'd kicked a small child in the face. No one liked to make the Old Man angry. Eeyore wished the Old Man were here now, on a plane heading toward Disney where he'd burn them to the ground.

    It would seem that the ignorant, backward, possibly pedophilic mongoloids over at Disney think that their tripe-riddled version of Winnie The Pooh needs an extreme make over. So me and Eeoyre are leaving the Hundred Acre Wood and finding somewhere better. We're thinking about starting an anger management company in Minneapolis.

    Someone else's take on the whole thing. I'm too angry to make this post funny.

    Although they might stretch a point and call her Alice - Christopher Robin's sometime companion

    I doubt seriously they will look back at A. A. Milne's work in an honest way to find either a name or a solution. Who needs the original author when you have imagineers whose job it is to take that original work and compress it into a pill everyone can take.

    There's a good point to be made thoguh that the 'original' disney versions are a travesty of the books too - even without a new charcter...

    Just because you hit an animal with your car doesn't mean you should then back over it as well.
