How about this one: "I can answer for all the fictional bears that they can't answer for the other fictional bears," said Winnie-the-Pooh. Will it be one of the rare affirmative ones? :))

Hello Yulia - yes, it would be one of the rare affirmative examples if it wasn't for the fact that Winnie-the-Pooh and Rupert the Bear never got on, so it's unlikely that Winnie would ever feel able to speak on his behalf.

Sadly, Winnie and Paddington fell out over a jar of jam. There's a lot of strife in the fictional bear world, apparently.
