Politically Correct Nursery Rhymes

Sooo as I "dissed" on our government and their stupid studies...England tops us for "stupidness". they are claiming that Mother Goose...is the reason prejudice is so rampant in society...seems to me the government is making issues from nothing...So in England they have changed Humpty Dumpty so he has a happy ending..."Humpty Dumpty opened his eyes, falling down was such a surprise, Humpty Dumpty counted to ten, then Humpty Dumpty got up again" Okay so the egg does not get scrambled and all the kings men will starve...but Humpty is not a sacrificial figure now. "Save the EGG."......Now this is not all...Mother Goose's work is being tarnished and manipulated also in "Baa Baa Black Sheep" Seems the old meaning of this poem is no longer considered..(so much for history) this poem was originally written in the early 1700's when political views were easily stated through writing and poetry...with out getting in trouble with the King...Seems the wool refered too in this poes...realy meant wool....black wool was taxed less than white wool and the monies made were split between the "master" (property owner), the church (the dame) and the little boy (the farmer) by mutating this poem they are ignoring history and killing the great works of Mother Goose...the new poem will read...Baa Baa rainbow sheep....have you any wool....yes, yes three bags full....then it will proceed through the color spetrum allowing each person to add their own color....so I gueess purple sheep would be taxed less???
With the great works of even greater artists being mutated and modified...will we see a change in Romeo and Juliet too...our suicide rates are climbing in our teen agers...could be the story of two love struck souls who die in each others arms rather than live life apart...lets not even talk about what Social Services will do to The old Woman Who lived in a Shoe.....my reality

Please do not tell me that Jack and Jill was having any other type of relationship other than platonic? If Hollywood has their way,they will most likely make an adatation movie patterned after nursery ryme about sheep, perhaps it will be titled "Brokeback Mountain" (Side note, Brokeback is coming to your video stores in April - for those who care!)
