Subject: RE: Nasty Nursery Rhymes
Variation of "enny-meeny-miney-moe" for choosing the person who will be "It" for a playground game:

(potential "Its" gather in a circle)
My mother and your mother had a big fight.
My mother knocked your mother clean out of sight.
What color blood came out, red or blue?
(At this point, the person to whom the speaker is pointing must choose "red" or "blue")
R-E-D spells red (or B-L-U-E spells blue)
And you are not go-ing to be "It."
(At this point, the person to whom the speaker is pointing leaves the circle and the rhyme starts again)
