If they like their bird very, very, very, very well done they are welcome to try.
Pooh has a tendency to get himself into situations...I am simply trying to be the voice of caution in his head. Not an easy job.
My thinking was: wouldn't it be better to inflate the raft first, then get into the pot? Rather than get into the pot, sink to the bottom and inflate the raft which is now floating at the surface while a metal chicken sits at the bottom.
Of course, knowing Pooh, this would force him to drink his way out...so that was probably his plan all along.
