    Oh Lio, I thought it was wonderful.

    Hey! You’re absolutely right, Margueritem! That was an “A” paper, for sure!

    I like a school that still uses Dunce caps !

    Nope, sorry. We would have accepted “and now drives a spanking new Beemer” or “and now Humptey drives a new Beemer”. He deserves the dunce cap for his tortured cadence.

    Long ago I heard an addendum to the poem…

    “But an American doctor, With patience and glue Put Humpty together again As good as new”.

    For genius, he certainly writes bad stories.

    “Lio” is stealing ideas from “Pearls Before Swine” now?

    Oh, that’s right… When I was in first grade, I was Humpty Dumpty in a school presentation of nursery rhymes. I just sat on a table holding a large cardboard drawing of HD and yelled my lines.

    FWIW, it’s not “beemer” the bastardization of “Bimmer” by the yuppies and wanna-bes when the nouveau riche discovered the neat German car I’d been driving for 15 years.

    Wait, stealing what from PEARLS BEFORE SWINE?! I love how people throw down an accusation of plagiarism and then just walk away.

    humpty should have added the town planning board and the town building commissioner and gotten enough to drive a mercedes

    A dunce cap? You’d think that he’d at least get a decent grade for his candor.

    Re. “dunce”: No way!

    Re. “stealing”: After thinking about it for a while, I suspect mblase75 is referring to the re-writing of children’s stories, which is an occasional theme in PBS. I don’t think this is the same thing at all.

    Poor Lio. Being creative is not all it’s cracked up to be.

    It must be a business law class and his teach knows that a good defense lawyer would take this case apart…as Humpty is nothing more than a loitering bum that has nothing to bring to society except his sitting around on the kingdom’s walls, bringing down property values, and now with the public option on the horizon, his PPO will go away and he’ll just be scrambled, with nobody wanting his high cholesterol self.
