Many nursery rhymes have origins in the politics of the time they were written.

Pretty horrifying.

I love nursery rhymes and fairytales. I think they're awesome, even if they're not the original versions.

Have you ever read the original Grimms fairy tales?They're really dark. I guess it's a safe way to introduce kids to the darker aspects of life.

I better get those to read to my kids. Get them ready for the cold cruel world.

@Rudy1962 You will scar them for life!


Jack's not nimble, Jack's not quick, Jack fell on the candlestick!! Bet that hurts!!

@RavenCT the guy named candle wouldn't like that would he?
