    For those of you who like to spout about things to show how smart you are.

    This is the worst propagation of lie I know to date. I recently watched a yahoo news video warning parents about nursery rhymes and how they are dark. One nursery rhyme they decided was dark was Ring Around The Rosie and how it depicts the plague.

    The comments section was full of, Yeah I knew that all along.

    Well guess what? You're all wrong.

    er, so the argument that the plague pre-dates the song by centuries is meaningless

    If you hold your tongue and utter the phrase "I was born on a pirate ship with ashes all around it" it sounds like you're saying "I was born in yonkers with yonkernittes all around me"


    True story.

    There was a recent story warning people about how nursery rhymes are dark. We are too stupid to continue as a species. :facepalm:

    I was at Larkin Center today and wanted to take a pic of where they uncovered a portion of the Saw Mill river but it was rainy.

    Here's a pic off the internet.

    german fairy tales are pretty dark; the little boy who sucked his thumb too much got his thumb cut off by his mom; hansel and gretel were cooked and eaten; cinderella's step-sisters cut off parts of their feet to get into the crystal slipper; all kinds of horrific shit :jj:
