So the line this little piggy had roast beef
Is that pig being fattened for the Market?
"..contributing to this theory is the extensive works of J. Zebronsky who published in 1971 in her book "Memes and Puns" describes the clear difference between the pigs who have roast beef and the pigs who have none to be a clear reference to the Bourgeoisie and the Proletariat. Credibility to this argument has often been questioned by academics"

This is one of those moments where i wonder how people got this far in life without observing these things.

Spoiler: The backstory of basically every nursery rhyme in the english language is a complete horror.

So, I read (on Wikipedia) that Richard Dawkins coined the word 'meme' in 1976 but that suggests J. Zebronsky did in 1971. I looked up J. Zebronsky and the book "Memes and Puns" and couldn't find anything about her/it on the internet.
