I can’t believe the world I’m living in sometimes. You may remember the Humpty Dumpty’s rhyme that goes “Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,” etc, etc. And of course he falls off that very wall, breaks, and can’t be put back together. Well, the BBC has something to say about that!
From the National Times:
In a revised version of the nursery rhyme that aired recently on the British Broadcasting Corporation’s children’s channel CBeebies, the tale – which first appeared in print in 1810 – no longer ends with “all the king’s horses and all the king’s men/Couldn’t put Humpty together again”. Now, a crack squadron of His Majesty’s finest hard-boiled military personnel has found the recipe to “make Humpty happy again”.
This stuff is unbelievable. Are you telling me that children are being traumatized by the image of an egg being broken? Political correctness has gone awry; children just can’t be children in today’s world it seems.
