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

great stuff steve however wiki says the cannon story is false etymology

according to wiki it was first a riddle converted to a rhyme, interesting reading

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
