Have you noticed that most English nursery rhymes somehow make absolutely no sense. Little miss muffet runs away from a spider Rock-a-bye-baby's cradle will.... fall? Humpty dumpty breaks his head The three blind mice have their tails cut off Jack and Jill tumble down the hill Little Bo-Beep loses her sheep Goosey Goosey Gander throws a man down the stairs The Knave of hearts stole the tarts Little boy blue is a lazy bum The old woman who lives in a shoe "has so many children" and "whips them to bed without any bread" - essentially a prostitute Don't even get me started on Yankee Doodle (Don't tell me you understood it's historical significance when you were three) Sing a song of six pence makes absolutely no sense! The best one yet "... The cow jumped over the moon and the dish ran away with the spoon..." just leaves you wondering, "What on Earth..? Did I just recite that crap as a kid??" This is just ridiculous. I think mother goose was on pot. And you wonder why we're in the deplorable state of affairs we are in today..... It all starts early.
