"If I understand the concept of the Winnie the Pooh stories correctly, then the Hundred Acre Wood and all characters and events contained within are inside the imagination of Christopher Robin. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is called schizophrenia."

I think you're being a bit harsh. Just because someone has an active imagination, that doesn't make them schizophrenic. Other than that, everything you said seemed right on (although the article offers different diagnoses). What makes the article entertaining is its underlying belief that nearly every condition in the Hundred Acre Wood can be eradicated with the right medications.

Anthony was the first to use the term "schizophrenia" in regards to Christopher Robin. I laughed so hard that I couldn't resist mentioning it in this entry.

Hi you should consider reading Tigger on the Couch, which deals with this topic. I would be interested to hear what you think of the author's interpretations, which I won't pontifiate on here, in re your own.
