    China has censored an image of Winnie the Pooh strolling with Tigger, after it went viral on popular Chinese microblogging site, Sina Weibo.

    If they are so controlling they would censor something as innocuous as this, imagine all the other stuff they are blocking. The NSA's activities seem like small beer compared to the Chinese government's control freakery.

    The issue isn't a matter of bad per se, but whether the Poo expounds good Communist Party principles or not. If not, he's not worthy of being seen by the masses.

    The two pictures combined seem to compare China's leader with Winnie the Pooh. Maybe it's the comparison they don't like.

    Pooh represents a Taoist master.
    Pooh represents ancient China - not the present.

    I thought this was about Winnie galavanting about pants-less. Sexier than the average bear!

    Maybe someone will make a new version specifically for Russia, and call it Winnie The Pootin.
