Nursery Rhymes: Behind the story


We all know and love the nursery rhymes we heard as a child. But do you know the back story or the aftermath of those stories. Well I am here to share those with you.

The stories of Jack & Jill and Humpty Dumpty are connected.

 Jack & Jill were actually twins and Jack got most of the attention. Also, Jill and Humpty were secretly dating. Jack didn't know because Jill knew he would not approve. Jill was fed up with all the attention that Jack got. In High School, he was captain of the football team and all around popular guy. He was also the favorite twin. Their mom would never admit it but he definitely got more of the love. She snapped and convinced Humpty to get rid of her problem. Jack falling down and breaking his crown was no accident. He was murdered by Humpty Dumpty. Humpty was so distraught over what he did that he took his own life by jumping off that wall. 

He left a suicide note and this it what it read:

To whomever finds my body,

I am so sorry. I am a bad egg. I deserve to be cracked on the sidewalk. I have done an unspeakable thing. Jack did not fall down the hill by accident. I pushed him. I just wanted to break his legs or maybe disfigure him. I swear I wasn't trying to kill him. Tell my mom that I love her and I always hate my name.

With deepest regret,
Humpty Dumpty

P.S. Please don't let those horses try and put me back together. They have no hands and will only make a mess. I have watched them play with jigsaw puzzles.

As you can read, Humpty did not snitch on Jill. He took full blame like a man. Jill split town as soon as she heard of Humpty's accident. She never got wind of the suicide note. She just assumed the police would pin it on her somehow. She bounced around from state to state as an exotic dancer working local strip clubs. She called herself 'Tumbles'. No one has seen her in years. Her mom doesn't know if she is alive or dead.

Why are males so willing to do the dirty work and take the blame for undeserving females? And if you could point me in the direction of one of these males, I would greatly appreciate it.

I heard she slept with the Gingerbread man and even made out with Gretel who was also pole dancing in a strip club

Humpity wasn't only a gentleman in death to keep Jill's secret, he also left his remains to the local shelter where the cooks made a fine omelet feeding the homeless for a day. RIP old friend I'm sorry you cracked under the pressure.

HOW do you come up with these things? what are you smoking? (inquiring minds wanna know)

These ditties were disguised political comments in their day. Now it takes scholarship to know who Humpty Dumpty was a stand-in for. Or maybe, in your post, it takes cheese and toast and some cleverness.
Thank you for visiting my blog.

Your imagination is hilarious. Tumbles...lol

I never trusted someone with the last name of Dumpty.

The things men will do for love. Jill deserved to go down in flames (or fall down a hill and break her crown too!)

Elephant's Child said...

I would hate Humpty's mother for all time too. With a name like that (and such a fragile skin) he was always doomed.
Jill is a body double for lots of other characters wanting time out. Sleeping Beauty is perhaps the easiest regular gig she has.

During the summer months, think about using the heat from the sun to dry your clothes instead of utilizing a dryer. Hanging your clothes outside to dry in the sun will give your clothes an incredible fresh smell. Sun-drying clothes gives them a fresh smell. You can also save money on your energy bills.
