Winnie the Pooh: Violent criminal?

From the Brampton, Ontario Guardian we get a valuable lesson for newspaper publishers about making sure the photo on the front page above the fold matches your top headline — or at least doesn’t make your publication look entirely silly.

Check out the capers of the “Violent crime duo caught on video” — aka the Abominable Snowman and Winnie the Pooh:

That Winnie The Pooh sure is a violent one.

Look, I get that the photo is of the holiday display that was vandalized as referenced in the story — but maybe an “after” photo would have been more appropriate?  Because now all I can picture is Winnie The Pooh drunk on honey, knocking over convenience stores and yelling obscenities.  Which, admittedly, is funny.
