@jane on twitter just retweeted a tweet that has upended my world....
This isn’t widely known that they’re getting eaten?
it is not
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"
well, my mind is blown anyway...

The Dark Origins of 11 Classic Nursery Rhymes
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.
hmm...perhaps wikipedia isn't 100% trustworthy
Most of that is bullshit and says more about our 21st century obsession with monsters hidden under the surface everywhere than it does about the origin of nursery rhymes.
It's stupid anyway. Doesn't even rhyme.
