Nursery Rhyme Redo: Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet
Collapsed on her tuffet
She hated curds and whey
When the little ol' spider
Sat down beside her
She gave her curds away.

  10. I would rather wait until someone makes the curds into cheese. Saddam didn't like them either... no silly, Kurds not cheeses!
