They’ve given who a Walk of Fame star?

I had a minor rant about Queen Latifah being given a Hollywood Walk of Fame star a while ago. I take it all back. That seems eminently reasonable now.

Because they’ve just given a Walk of Fame star to Winnie the Pooh.

Queen Latifah, for all her faults, is an actual human being. Winnie the Pooh isn’t real (although don’t we all wish he was?). You cannot give a Walk of Fame star to Winnie the Pooh, whether he’s in book form, CGI or a cartoon. Are they going to give Simon Templar a star next? BA Baracus? The ants from A Bug’s Life? It’s a world gone mad, I tell you!

Still, there’s probably a precedent somewhere. They’ve almost certainly given R2D2 a star.
