I'm currently doing research (i.e. planning without a date) into a trip to POFQ.

I keep coming across references to puns in the road signs and I have seen photos of one or two that are quite amusing but most articles I've read keep saying that "Rue D'Baga" is the best. But I don't get it. :confused:

I've tried saying it out loud, reading it as Rudy Baga doesn't help me either. Can anyone explian what I'm missing?

Actually, you're right - I've not seen much Disney Winnie-the-Pooh. The most I've seen was on Disneytime as a child (I used to love that programme at Bank Holidays.)

There definitely wasn't any rutabaga in the original books (there wasn't a gopher either! :))

Still I'm pleased to now know what everyone is referring to.
