WHAT DO ALEXANDER THE GREAT AND WINNIE THE POOH HAVE IN COMMON? – THEY HAVE THE SAME MIDDLE NAME. What’s so funny about this? Once again the set-up sets us up to be completely faked out. We rack our brains trying to figure out what these two characters could possibly have in common. That’s because we are focused on the characteristics and personalities of these guys. Of course, that also assumes that we know who both are them actually are or were, and that we’ve read or heard enough about their stories and backgrounds to find things they might hold in common. Even so, it would be a daunting or difficult task. Alexander was a real historical person. He was a Greek, actually a Macedonian, king who had a very strong army and several thousand years ago, he defeated the Persians who at that time had the strongest army in the known world. Alexander went on to conquer many countries in the Middle East and Africa and established his own empire. Winnie the Pooh, on the other hand, is a cartoon bear, an illustration that went with A.A. Milne’s classic children’s story. In fact it’s difficult for me to think of Winnie without picturing what he looks like. Winnie is a bear who lives in a forest, has lots of friends and loves honey. So what DO Winnie and Alex have in common? It turns out that I don’t need any prior knowledge to answer the question. In fact, the answer to the question is in the actual question. Alex’s full title is Alexander the Great. This kind of description is common when talking about important kings and queens. Other examples are Catherine the Great, Ivan the Terrible, and even Vlad the Impalor. You take the name of the ruler and add a distinguishing characteristic. You can figure out for yourself what kind of people Catherine, Ivan and Vlad were, and what people thought of them. Winnie is different in that he never was king of the forest or any other place. Nevertheless, it is also common when talking about animals by their names to use their personal names along with their animal names, such as Harry the Horse or Tom the Turtle. But Milne called Winnie the Pooh for the same reason Alex was called great. When Winnie was bothered by flies around his nose, he would try to blow them away with a puff of air, which sounded like “Pooh”. That’s how he became known as Winnie the Pooh. I know, too much information. All we really need is to see that both Alex and Winnie have the word “the” in their titles. And THAT’s what’s so funny!
