I’ve started a new category for your reading pleasure, “Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales Revisited” in which I take a bizarre look at the stories that we tell our children when they are young. All of them happy, happy… But are they? Do we know what was going through the minds of the writer of such things? Do we really? Furthermore, even if they were innocent little items to make the children smile, I’ve taken the liberty of dissecting a few and offer some suggestions as to what may, or may not, have been a subliminally planted message! You’ll have to decide for yourselves.
Some of these have humor, some have speculation, some have violence, but all of them were (initially) intended for the children..
I’ll start you off with one of a lighter note, and we’ll go downhill later!
Have a wonderful Labor Day (U.S.) and a terrific week ahead,
Breakfast For A King
was a pretty good egg
but he took a bad fall
and broke an arm and a leg.
But the king and his horseman
did not give a good damn,
as the king ordered scrambled
with home-fries and ham.
