Help Winnie-the-Pooh answer a question

 
 
Reply Mon 5 Apr, 2004 10:59 pm
Winnie-the-Pooh was pondering a question about the very-very-clever. He asked Piglet "Piglet, the very-very-clever are often shown stroking their beards while in deep-thought. I am not a clever bear, and I also have no beard. Perhaps if I grow a beard, and stroke it, I could be more clever."

Piglet got anxious and said "I am also not clever, and just a very-small-animal. We should go ask Owl."

They went to Owl's house and asked him about the beard-stroking and the very-very-clever. Owl thought for a bit and said "I am very-very-wise, but not clever, and I too have no beard."

Eeyore walked into the conversation. "Bah, I say. In my experience, the very-very-clever are never really clever, and only grow the beards to hide the fact that they are faking it, the clever part, I mean."

"Now I'm more confused than ever," said Pooh. "Perhaps I should ask the clever people at A2K. They MUST know why the very-very-clever stroke their beards while thinking."

"Good idea!" said Piglet.

"I'm going to get some hunny now and wait for some answers," said Pooh.

you call that confused, you call that confused?
let me tell you
let me tell YOU
this morning I went into the book store and bought a Darwin Fish decal to put on the rear of my car (the Dodge not the Porshe) and when I went to the clerk to pay for it he said "Why your a god-damn atheist, may your soul rot in hell"
when I got out to my car I was REALLY confused.

Hmmm - I stroke my chin, or ears, when pondering - I don't think it is the beard - I think it is a ritual soothing thingy which entrances us and allows our creative mind to go free - but what would a Wabbit know?

I scratch my head, not a good habit. I suppose I should go back to smoking.

That's it. All those apparently wise people just gave up smoking.

I have a beard, and i pull on it, which might be characterized as stroking, i guess . . . i do that because i'm a space case, though . . . were i clever, i would wonder what i were doing in this thread . . . i think . . .

So the company I work for was starting production on the lid of a soft-sided diaper wipe container. At one meeting someone pulls out a finished prototype.

There's the lid that I've been measuring atop this sort of plastic bag, decorated with cartoon bears.

Any parent knows... if you have Pooh on the outside of the diaper wipe container, you're doing it wrong.

Not all faces are perfect - some don't have beards.

Your South Park avatar has a beard. Winnie the Pooh is still confused, but thanks for reviving this silly thread. Laughing

As a woman, am I to assume I am dumb because I am hirsuitically-impaired?

I stick my tongue between my teeth
When I am thinking really hard
When speaking out in public though,
It makes my speech a bit awk-ward

I can't both talk and tooth my tongue
So I must choose 'tween "think" and "speak"
What reason do our leaders give
For what comes from their mouths each week?
