Old Woman

Take Two: Given a second chance, how would this be different? Rewrite the ending to a book, movie, scene, fable, quote, etc.

Rewrite this nursery rhyme, making the final line less abusive.
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth without any bread.
Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.
Winner Time!!! (12/08/09)
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children she didn't know what to do.
She called for a nanny, she called for a maid,
Then went out with the hubby, and then home to get... sleep.
Winner: Inspired Dreamer
Method of Selection: For the first time, I really truly couldn't choose. So I relied on Random.org to do the choosing for me.

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe,
She found having children meant living anew;
Each day fresh adventures brought pleasure and smiles;
Now they all go out clubbing each night on the tiles.

She had so many children she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth without any bread.
Then sang them a song and tousled their heads.

There was an old lady who lived in a shoe.
She had no children, and nothing to do.
So everyday to a Casino she would go.
And her Social Security check she would blow.

Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.
Because the little bastards deserved it.

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth without any bread,
And fruit, veggies, and milk, 'til they were well-fed.

She had so many children she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth without any bread,
Then had a stiff drink, and called them all Fred.
