Pop Culture Frenzy, Round 47

Welcome once again to Pop Culture Frenzy. 

Last week in Pittsburgh, a burglary suspect running from police, taunted them with a nursery rhyme. Which nursery rhyme?


Hark hark the dogs do bark?
Hostmaster:  incorrect. 
Three Blind Mice?
Hostmaster:  incorrect.
Tom, Tom the piper's son.  Stole a
pig and away he run.
The pig was eat and Tom
was beat.
And Tom went roaring
 down the street.  
Police brutality is a real
Hostmaster:  incorrect.
Cyndi, with which nursery rhyme did the burglar taunt the police?
They shouldn't chase suspects.
Someone could get hurt.
Hostmaster:  still waiting for your answer.
Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle. 
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed
to see such sport.
And the dish ran away
with the spoon!
Do you suppose most poets take
psychedelic drugs?
Some say it enhances the imagination.
Didn't Edgar Allan Poe take drugs?
Maybe the Pittsburgh burglar
was a poet.  He stole
 to pay for drugs!
If he did, he needs help,
not police misconduct.

Hostmaster:  he'll have lots of time to write poetry in jail.  By the way, the answer is The Gingerbread Man.
Run run as fast as you can.
You can't catch me, I'm the
Gingerbread Man.
So ends another round
 with no winners. 
Round 47

Bryan/Cyndi   18



  1. I get such a kick out of the interaction!

    Cyndi could benefit from a bit of psychedelic drugs.

  2. A thief and a smarta$$...what a combination!

    I love the way they come together to say the poem, right or not.

    cheers, parsnip andthehamish
