Inky binky bonky, daddy had a donkey

You Canadians. Crazy ass Canadians. Seems as if some people think nursery rhymes are bad.

“Instead, parents should give children the hard facts in “medically sound” ditties that offer quick relief for nursery rhyme characters who clearly suffer major head injuries.”

“Particularly egregious were the injuries presumably sustained by “Ten Little Monkeys,” who begin the rhyme jumping on a bed but by its end are nowhere to be found.

That leaves only one conclusion, according to the paper: Each monkey must have sustained a major head or spinal injury.

“This rhyme is yet another example of the need for strong legislation to protect members of our society who are at risk,” the authors said.

“After the first incident, the monkeys should have been placed in foster care, perhaps with “The Man with the Yellow Hat.”

Maybe they should have put them under the care of the old woman who lived in a shoe? But then again, she had so many children, she didn’t know what to do. That sounds like a potential case of child abuse to me!

  1. I wonder if Michael Jackson would be willing to Mother Goose ‘em. He is a friend of jumping monkeys.
