No knot is for naught
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.
