Cottleston Pie

'Cottleston Pie'

Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
A fly can't bird, but a bird can fly.
Ask me a riddle and I reply
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie.

Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
Why does a chicken? I don't know why.
Ask me a riddle and I reply
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie.

Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie,
A fish can't whistle and neither can I.
Ask me a riddle and I reply
Cottleston Cottleston Cottleston Pie.

Winnie-the-Pooh (1926)
by A. A. Milne




"that the more you read into it, the less important it becomes"

— But what exactly is cottleston pie?

A pie that is mentioned by Winnie the Pooh Bear in his
philosophical piece, the Tao of Pooh.
Used by him as a response to various riddles including,

"Why does a chicken, I don't know why."

So use this as an answer to anything.

Example:
Joe — How do you use these condoms?
Mary — Cottleston, cottleston, cottleston pie.

Teacher — What is the square root of 56.9?
Student — Cottleston pie.

"A fly can’t bird but a bird can fly"

Very simple. Very obvious. And yet, you’d be surprised how many people violate this simple principle every day of their lives. When you know and respect your own Inner Nature, you know where you belong.
You also know where you don’t belong.

"A fish can’t whistle and neither can I"

Coming from a wise mind, such a statement might mean,
“I have certain limitations, and I know what they are.”
There can be lots of things wrong with blindly trying to do what you aren’t designed for. Fish don’t live in trees, and birds don’t spend too much time underwater if they can help it.

The important thing here is, we don’t need to know.
What we need to do is to recognize Inner Nature and work with
Things the Way They Are.
When we don’t, we get into trouble.

Hope I have completely answered your question, it's definitely NOT a pie.

best wishes
