nagging question
 
Why the hell does the weasle go POP and why are we singing nursery rhymes to kids about exploding weasles?

Melvin 01-04-2013 08:56 PM

according to a few different sources it originated in the U.K. and it's a cockney thing. Riddled with old as dirt slang that would have no real meaning today.

This was the least time consuming explanation to read.
Pop goes the Weasel nursery rhyme lyrics, origins and history

Something about not trusting the police and pawning your clothes.

London Bridge isn't exactly a nice song either.

I don't think it includes the weasel, but you will get Mary Mary, London Bridge, and a few more.

Three wise men from Gotham, sailed to sea in a bowl.
If the bowl would have been stronger, this story would be longer.

That is by far the best one I've ever come across. My aunt gave a book of old nursery rhymes to my daughter a few years ago. They are all twisted and demented.

childrens stories really arent meant for children are they...

I think a lot of them were meant to scare kids into behaving. they were boogieman stories. For example, in the original story Hansel and Grettle got eaten. Lesson=don't go into the woods kids.
