Thread Name: Origins: this little piggy - history
Subject: RE: Origins: this little piggy - history
Q: apart from some citations, banter, and random re-quotes by "GUEST". All of the above did not give me any answers. I do not wish to click on the links and investigate further. Because I'm 12 years in the future from the dates of this post (the last entries). Furthermore, I'm on my smart phone and can't see Masato's pictures. What I'd like to know, does it have anything to do with farmers getting pigs ready for market, the French civil war; is it a poem that has many re-inventions (harpgirl; slavery) what is the true origin of the "poem", it's in "The Nurse's Song". You mentioned wee wee; urination, but some say "oui" and Wikipedia has the least information of all.
Is it one of those grim nursery rhymes told to children like "a tissue, a tissue, we all fall down with beubonic plague" or is it something else?

ALL I KNOW Is I woke at 3ish this morning thinking about it in reference to my current predicament and went looking on my smart phone for its origin . This site came up 3rd in google when I typed the cross reference "this little piggy and the nurse's tale" into the search bar.

Weke weke week week said the little pig. Q: not ***** it's only 4 wees not 5.

End of correspondence; stardate 49er foxtrot over .

Ttfn,
jo
