Humpty Dumpty is a Victim of Political Correctness by 

The BBC has opted to change Humpty Dumpty.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty together again

The last line becomes:
Made Humpty Dumpty happy again.

What’s the Big Deal you may ask?

The nursery rhyme is an Anti-government riddle.
Humpty is an egg, everyone knows it, but it isn’t said.
All the king’s horses represents all the kings power, his armies, calvary, etc.
All the king’s men represents all the king’s wisdom, priests, scientists, wizards, etc.
We learn the government, with all it’s power and might, cannot even get an egg back together!

People can not rely on government.
People must rely on God.

The BBC wants the poem to say that government can solve all your problems, and make you happy.
They want to use this as propaganda for the children.


Dawn is an independent political artist, with a dislike for the political establishment. Dawn believes that government is for the people and by the people, and needs to get off the peoples’ backs.
