Never did I think that I would laugh so hard at people cursing out characters from the beloved Winnie the Pooh stories, but here you go. The 4chan flash game Winnie the Pooh Home Run Derby has hit the webs, and that has confounded and frustrated many who have attempted to beat it — among them these folks who have vented their frustration on Reddit. (Caution: many NSFW words).

In the game, you control Winnie the Pooh, who is at the plate and attempting to hit pitches from a succession of Pooh characters (Eeyore, Rabbit, Tigger, etc.), with each pitcher getting successively harder to hit. The game was discovered by 4chan user and soon sparked an internet stream of frustration on Reddit as others attempted to beat it. Result: comedy commenting gold.

Update 2: How the **** can rabbit speed up a ball mid flight? YOU DONT HAVE THUMBS ************.
Update 3: What. Owl throws the ball in serpertine formation. 5/35 homeruns
Update 4: Still on owl. 10/35. My hand is cramping up.

Played Eeyore 8 ******* times. Never got more then a single home run per game. Rage quit.

Never in my life did I think I was going to be screaming “**** YOU TIGGER” for 2 hours strait.

That makes me want to cut myself. I can’t get past Kanga and Roo and you’re telling me there’s harder?

[–]Joelsaurus[S] 65 points 1 day ago
Much….much harder. How anyone could market this game for kids is dumbfounding. I’m 24 and I can’t beat this. I can’t imagine an 8 year old has a better chance than me.

This is true. Finally beat Tigger. Don’t even waste your time with that ***** Christopher Robin.

Someone make a game where I can beat this ******* owl to death with the bat.

[–]Vark675 72 points 1 day ago
Seriously, I can’t even tell where the **** I’m supposedly swinging the bat. Apparently the ball is going under it, but there’s like no depth perception in this, so **** if I can figure it out.

[–]Pav0n 106 points 1 day ago
There is a green dot on the bat, when the balls hits the green dot, press down left mouse-button, and then… we pray to god.

With that information in mind, I went back and easily kicked Eeyore’s donkey ***. Holy ****.

[–]PYRO49 57 points 1 day ago
But I rage quited at Piglet. ****, I want to see him try that **** in real life.

[–]Gumner 117 points 1 day ago
Piglet has one hell of a fastball

[–]AmbyPamby1 97 points 1 day ago
Seriously, **** piglet.

[–]J_Jack 7 points 1 day ago
Kanga and Roo can burn in Hell where they belong

This makes me feel bad about my life

That marsupial piece of ****.
Update: Oh yeah
Update 2: That rabbit cheats
Going to bed for now.

And possibly my favorite:

I don’t think I’ve ever hated a cartoon animal as much as I do Owl right now.

This, apparently, is the Japanese version.
