    Rat has a point. Why do we read such poems to our children then expect them to behave better?

    Nursery Rhymes are really quite gross, when you think about it….

    The nursery rhyme never states that they were eating in a restaurant, though.

    Mary had a little lamb and it was always gruntin’.She hitched it to a five-bar post and kicked its little runt in.—Monty Python

    I thought that was “With cockle shells, and silver bells, and one goddamn eggplant…” I could be wrong.

    Rat’s new and improved second verse is worse, for it does not scan at all, but lamely limps along.And, Rat lives with Pig, so he should know better how pigs eat. They are very clean animals (cleaner than your average rat)!
