Draw: Humpty Dumpty



Someone asks: Draw all the Horses and all the Kings Men Putting Humpty Dumpty together again.

I heard about the origin of this phrase the other day. Something to do with some useless english king. Was it someone the reckless?

Also how do we know that Humpty Dumpty was an egg? It doesn't say anywhere in the rhyme.

humpty dumpty was a cannon. I've never heard the useless king reference, but the cannon was apparently local to colchester (also home to old king coel)

Your right...

I was thinking of the Grand Ol' Duke of York.

It was a cannon from Colchester, during the english civil war. There was a siege there.. I had to do a history project on it. As you can tell from my vague comments I totally waited until the night before to do it. It was basically a folded bit of paper with humpty dumpty on it.. And my school was named after one of the king's men.. I think? Sir Charles Lucas. Colchester is the oldest recorded town too. So no wonder it's so frigging boring.

Great blog thing!
