Where in The Nursey Rhyme Does It Say Humpty Dumpty Was An Egg ?

#1
Humpty Dumpty was the name of a cannon in the 17th century. it was put on a wall to defend a town called Forfar. It was the main cannon.

An enemy fired and hit it. It fell to the ground smashing it to pieces. And all the kings horses and all the kings men couldnt put Humpty together again. It was changed to an egg in the 18th century lol

Hehe i knew it wasnt an egg lol x
