Is it a joke I have missed? Is it now an alternative spelling to poo? To me 'poo' is what comes out of your bum and 'pooh' is a bear called Winnie grin. Someone enlighten me please!

And window sill as a cill

What is a cill anyway? Is it a thing?

Pooh is right though, isn't it? confused
Pooh sticks made me feel queasy as a kid wink I never understood where the childish 'poo' crept in, it's the spelling you see on loo walls in rough primary schools grin

I cannot imagine Winnie the Pooh being called Winnie the Shit/crap . hmm

It sounds wrong so a shit is a poo.
