    I was interested some time back to find the origins of the nursery rhyme SG. Humpty is actually a cannon ball firer, and it fell of the wall and couldn’t be fixed. I was really amused…  😆

    Wow! Thank you for that Bobbity. A cannon ball firer is the last thing I would have thought of. 😮

    That’s so true when you hear that Bobbity . We take often what is said or repeated and think that’s it.

    When we were growing up adults said someone is talking 90 to the dozen,, well that’s what we thought they said,,, and I always said that . 💡

    In  a lot of English books I read years ago  ,,they are talking 19 to the dozen?? Lol

    (“Wow! Thank you for that Bobbity. A cannon ball firer is the last thing I would have thought of 😯  “)

    I wouldnt either SG but it did make sense when I read it.  Very many of the nursery rhymes have their origin in wartime, even nearly all of them, even rock a bye baby!  None of them mean what we think they mean. 🙂

    Kai, that’s funny. I’m afraid we mishear words and repeat them wrongly and the whole world copies us. 🙂

    I love all GUppies
