However this is exactly what Scottish Water workers found clogging the country’s sewers.

Over the years, Pooh has had many strange adventures with everything from a honey tree to heffalumps and woozles, but we don’t think A.A. Milne would’ve approved of this one.

Thankfully, he didn’t actually make the journey down someone’s porcelain throne and was instead dumped down a manhole (still poor form).

There is a very serious side to this story though Scottish Water said as they revealed that 80% of its blockages were caused by people putting the wrong things down their sinks and toilets.

Last year in fact, it dealt with more than 40,000 blockages in its network caused by everything from cotton buds to a fax machine (I know, how the hell did that get in there?).

Chris Wallace, Director of Communications, said: “The waste water drain which runs from your house to the public sewer is usually only about four inches wide, which is less than the diameter of a DVD. This drain is designed to take only the used water from sinks, showers and baths and pee, poo and toilet paper from the toilet.

“Scottish Water believes the best way to tackle blocked drains and sewer flooding is to work with our customers to prevent blockages that can clog up the cycle in the first place.”

Remember you should only flush the three P’s and definitely not Pooh, cooking fat or oil, false teeth, jeans, action figures, mobile phones or anything else better suited to a bin.
