I shall now use LJ to settle a very important dispute.
I do not wish to prejudice the poll results by explaining why
I am doing this. This poll closes at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday June 24, 2008.
For purposes of the opening of the standard "Twenty Questions" game, Winnie the Pooh is:
: For purposes of this poll --
a) "Winnie-the-Pooh" refers to the character in the series of books by A. A. Milne, and in the subsequent adaptations and sequels authorized by the Walt Disney Company.
b) "Standard Twenty Questions game" refers to spoken parlor game
in which a person (the answerer
mentally selects a subject and informs the other players (the questioners
) whether the subject is an animal, a vegetable, or a mineral. Questioners then ask questions that the answerer must answer "yes" or "no." Lying is not permitted.
c) The terms "animal," "vegetable," and "mineral" in the poll have the same meanings they have in the standard Twenty Questions game.
