Broken Egg

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

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall...
Rewrite the nursery rhyme with a new ending.

We Have A Winner!!! 02/01/10
Humpty Dumpty had sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had had a great fall
His friends all laughed and pointed with glee
It's seems ol' Humpty was a jerk, you see

He was always a show off and better than all
Which is exactly what prompted his climb up the wall
Doing a dance and showing his ass
He really did think he was top of the class

But kharma's a bitch and just a bit fickle
It's seems our friend Humpty found himself in a pickle
He teetered and tottered and and bobbled and fell
And he became breakfast for the Farmer in the Dell
Winner: Rabbit (@redheaddancing)
Reason: In other words, pride goeth before a fall?

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
Into cooked cereal Humpty did fall

All the Kings men and All the Kings horses
Had been in physics courses
Learn about gravitational forces

Through many an experiment
They worked to stop the plummet
Oatmeal it seemed was the instrument

Humpty went home that night
Now aware of his plight
Walls for eggs were not right

Mrs. Dumpty let him lay there in his own mess until the King's men found him. See if he ever comes home with lipstick on his shell again.

Humpty Dumpty Sat on the Wall
Humpty Dumpty Had a Great Fall
All the Kings Horses and All the Kings Men
Had tried to warn Humpty not to do this again
They had bought him a helmet to wear on his head
But to proud to use it, he was now good and dead
So they pulled out the spatula and lit a fire beneath the pan
And soon Humpty was the most delicious omlette in the entire land

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
and my oh my it surely was a great fall!

Humpty Dumpty just couldn't help it
all the day long, he would just sit and sit and sit
for the dorky writers to get inspired for a children's lit

oh, but, only in the end
how more could they offend
when all they could come up with
is a dumb song about eggshells broken in bits

He came to land
In my open hand,
So Humpty didn't get damaged at all.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
Licking lips with a grin,
All the king's men
Made a big omelet for all.

I didn't read Bethany's first.

I promise. :-D

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
He realized too late the error he made
leaving the bungee cord with the cavalcade.
