LITTLE BO-PEEP, THE REAL STORY


I know it's true because I read it in the paper!!




Little Bo-Peep, 
by Mother Goose

Little Bo-Peep has lost her pigs, 
And can't tell where to find them; 
Leave them alone, and they'll come home, 
Curling their tails behind them. 

Little Bo-Peep fell fast asleep, 
And dreamt she heard them oinking; 
But when she awoke, she found it a joke, 
It was Boy Blue, there for their frequent boinking. 

Then up she took her little crook, 
Determined for to find them; 
She knew her father would yell, for he couldn’t sell 
Pigs with no tails behind them. 

Then later that day, as the two did stray 
Into a meadow nearby, 
They saw curly parts of pig hide, hanging side by side, 
All up on a clothesline to dry. 

They heaved a sigh and she wiped her eye, 
And ran as fast as a New Yorker; 
She and Blue tried what they could, as pig herders should, 
Playing “Pin the Tail on the Porker”.


Since this is the first time the true story has been published,
all of the cartoons deal with sheep:

  2. Little Bo Peep, you didn't really "lose" your sheep did you? Just tell us where the bodies are and we can cut a deal."

    "Well I can't say for sure, but the legs are probably roasting in ovens all over town and the chops will be on barbecues next weekend. No one wanted the lamb's frys or even the kidneys"

    1. What exactly are the lamb's frys? I know they're not small fish!!

    2. Lamb's Fry is the liver, probably names lamb's fry because people didn't like the idea of eating liver.

  3. I think it is Boy Blue who is behind the disappearance of the sheep, with them out of the way he has more time to spend with Bo-Peep.

  7. Ah ha, they were pigs. That explains it for they are smart and weren't lost at all. They were on the lamb--oops--running away.

    1. Answer from yahoo.com: "Sheep are born with short tails, but the wool on the tails is sometimes left un-shorn giving the appearance of a longer tail." I didn't know that, either!!
