Cooking with Pooh

Yes, this is a real, published cook book. Here's the Amazon link if you don't believe me. And yes, they really are asking too much for us to be adults and overlook the painfully obvious potty joke that is the title.

I noticed the book is no longer in stock and Amazon doesn't know if it will ever be republished. Pity. I can think of some great books to add to the instructional series. Consider the following bestselling titles:

Decorating with Pooh

Making Friends with Pooh

Getting Dressed with Pooh

Table Etiquette with Pooh

Learn to Knit with Pooh



Okay, now I'm just grossing myself out. Sorry guys, I just couldn't rise above this one.

cheers

I tried to think of some other "something with Pooh" to add that was equally witty. *think, think, think* You thought up all the good ones. But really, Cooking With Pooh just beats them all. Truly amazingly gross.

Hollywood said...

Oh, Nancy! There are plenty of good ones left if you have the stomach for it. How about "Making Music with Pooh" or "Bathtub Fun with Pooh?"

Karen said...

Hahaha! That was great. Although, based on the comment I made the other day (in my blog) this could be a book to feature at our house.

Swimming With Pooh could possibly be the worst. All that fur in the water, you know.

How about "Painting with Pooh"?

Impossble to rise above. Simply impossible.

Heather O. said...

Wait, I meant "finger painting with Pooh". Much more descriptive, um, I mean, creative.

Hollywood said...

Gag! I'm SO glad I'm not the only sicko out in the blogosphere. Nice ones, ladies!

Hollywood said...

It's true, I'm a lousy speller. Why don't I just say "manners" if I don't know how to spell it? I guess because you didn't know how to either.

Heather said...

I needed a laugh. I get weird thoughts when I talk about "pooh" too! I giggle when watching in. Where's your son? oh he is watching "pooh". Good one again!

How about Applying Make-up with Pooh?

Colleen said...

Hey, you made me laugh. You can stoop to potty humor anytime!

Is "Pooh for Dummies" too big a stretch?

Marie said...

OMG the mental images... I will never get Knitting With Pooh out of my head.

Hollywood said...

Or "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Pooh?"

Michemily said...

My dad always would point at little kids with Winnie the Pooh on their shirts and say, "Hey, there's poo on your shirt!"

I dreamt last night that you left your husband and kids and I thought, "There goes the best parenting blog award."

Ha ha!

Hollywood said...

Michemily - funny thing - I had the same dream! Just kidding. But some days you know I think it. Oh to have a day at the spa... Tarnishing my Best Parenting Blog nomination is the only thing stopping me.

Shiloh said...

LOL-Thanks for making me laugh! :)

Scrapbooking with Pooh?
Sculpting with Pooh?
Folding Origami with Pooh?

(Don't tell my mom I wrote any of those, ok?)

Bek said...

We have always made fun of this marketing angle.... remember the commercials on tv that used to go "It's so much friendlier with Pooh". Seriously. I laugh like a 2nd grader....

Karen said...

I just had to come back and read more Pooh humor. I love being juvenile enough to find it hysterical.

exuse me? don't think you can get out of a tag just because you like poo.

ha said...

I'm not sure what you mean by "I guess because you didn't know how to either." Did I misspell it? Or are you saying I showed a lack of manners by offering the correct spelling? I'm sorry--I wasn't meaning to be a jerk, but I guess you were.

Hollywood said...

Yikes! There were critical missing words in my comment, ha. I meant to say, "I guess because I THOUGHT you didn't know how to either." I don't count on my readers picking up all my many typos.

No, rude isn't my thing. Sorry if you took unnecessary offense. I tend to type fast, and edit too late.

I don't get the whole "etiquette" thing. That is how it is spelled. It was correct in the original post. So why the fight?

Shiloh said...

Hey just fyi, I tried to find this book from some online sellers and it is going for $150 to $199. So if you have a copy, Cooking with Pooh may have been one of the best investments you've ever made ;)
