Heffalumps are big grey animals, not to be confused with mouses which are small grey animals. Heffalumps are often associated with woozles. The best way to catch a heffalump is to dig a heffalump trap although the only bea.. I mean "person" ever to do so merely succeeded in catching himself.

If you are trying to get to sleep and don't want to count sheep, then you may try counting heffalumps, although you may find that they just try to raid your honey pot.

The phrase "there's a heffalump in the room" refers to some subject that people are all aware of but studiously not talking about, such as Piglet having an affair with Kanga*.


*Yes, don't say you didn't know about it.

The plural of mouse is mice.
The plural of spouse is spice.

Ah - now I understand what the spice girls were about.

Not mouses - meeses...

Although not original to A.A.Milne, I feel Lumpy would like a mention on this thread.
