&rldonah And glad to do so too! I love the sheer ingenuity at the way people did pass on their history to their off-spring. Perfectly done!

These rhymes, although sometimes gruesome and depressing, play a role in preserving history. Unfortunately, the meaning behind them gets lost which seems, in a way, to defeat the purpose. But then we have people like &JoHarrington that help educate those that aren't aware and thus helps preserve the historical meaning :).

&trufflehunter It's what helped hide them, plus it taught the kids things that could go wrong from an early age. That was quite important, when people didn't live so long.

And how morbid that those stories are disguised as innocent little rhymes for children @.@

The true meaning is certainly less gruesome than the first! I am relieved, although I generally enjoy gruesomeness.
