Unbearable news out of Harvard: Pooh's house to be torn down

Sad PoohRoving UHub reporter Charles Bahne stumbled across some distressing news by the Harvard Science Center today:

The tree that has served as Winnie the Pooh's home for many years is scheduled to be cut down tomorrow.

Bahne reports an official looking sign - complete with an official Harvard University seal - says the tree's health is "in serious decline" and so requires the tree be taken out. A new tree will be planted in its place, but, of course, it won't have enough room for a small bear for quite some time.

    The fat bastard burrowed out

    The fat bastard burrowed out too much of the trunk for the tree to survive.

    Eh

    I'm sure there's another tree that the door and sign can be attached to.

    I take it back - this doesn't interest me at all. Some setup of Pooh signs someone contrived to place over the years near the Science building? Puh-lease!

    I hadn't had time to follow the background story link earlier.

    I was concerned because I thought it was about the Pooh tree on a side street in the general vicinity of Porter Square.

    Are you f***ing kidding me?

    Pooh's house doesn't have a sign on the front saying "Pooh". Even Disney got that right, for fuck's sake. "Winnie-The-Pooh" isn't even his real name. Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ, tear the motherfucker down already.

    Indeed the Pooh Tree was cut

    Indeed the Pooh Tree was cut down, however they didn't demo it. They cut it as a stump, and someone has built a fantastic roof over the stump, where presumably pooh still resides.
