No knot is for naught

New Straits Times - - Flair -

IN an episode of the cur­mud­geonly Rab­bit finds him­self stuck in a hole with the tit­u­lar Pooh and the rest of the gang from the Hun­dred Acre Wood.

Only Piglet, who is a Very Small An­i­mal, is on the sur­face and now has to res­cue them all.

Piglet pro­ceeds to lower a rope that’s been cut into six — be­cause there are six of them in the ground. Of course none of the pieces are long enough to pull any of them up, so what fol­lows is a ge­nius bit of sit­u­a­tional homonym hu­mour.

“Can you tie a knot?” asks Rab­bit. “I can­not,” replies Piglet. “So you can knot!” “No, I can­not knot.” “Not knot?” In his good-na­tured ab­sent-mind­ed­ness, Pooh sees this as an open­ing for a knock, knock joke. And Don­key in­ter­jects with his usual dour de­meanour, say­ing, “It’s all been for naught.”

The knot on this J.W. An­der­son bag has been tightly twisted, but it is not for naught. Its bright hue and but­ter-soft leather will get you out of a sar­to­rial hole any­time.
