Nursery Rhymes.

by burniingaschs

Nursery rhymes, they seem pretty innocent at first.

But should we really be telling this stuff to children?

There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe. She had so many children, she didn't know what to do; She gave them some broth without any bread; Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

Doesn't that just seem kind of wrong?

I mean just what is it that we're trying to tell children anyway? Are we trying to tell them to be afraid of old ladies? The original ending to that was: She whipp'd all their bums.

Jack Be Nimble.

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over The candlestick. My brothers and I added this part: If only he'd jumped a little higher, he wouldn't have caught his pants on fire.

Why would you tell a child that?

Now apparently back in the day, jumping over lit candles was good luck. But what about now? Are we trying to get children to play with fire and catch their pants on fire?

Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater

Peter, Peter pumpkin eater, Had a wife but couldn't keep her; He put her in a pumpkin shell And there he kept her very well.

Peter you naughty boy.

There was more to that but it'd be too long. Anyway, what kind of foolishness are we teaching children to say? If you don't like your wife, stick her in a pumpkin. But keep an eye on her.

Jack and Jill.

Jack and Jill went up the hill To fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down and broke his crown, And Jill came tumbling after.

Oookay...

Jack broke his crown right? Doesn't that mean he broke his head? And Jill followed after...

Rock-a-by Baby

Rock-a-by baby On the tree top, When the wind blows The cradle will rock. When the bough breaks, The cradle will fall, And down will fall baby Cradle and all.

*Sniff*

Seriously? The baby was in a tree and then the branch he was on broke, and well... Bye bye baby.

I'm probably reading in to this way too much.

But still, those all sound pretty creepy.
