Nursery Rhyme Redo: Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard
Had ants in her cupboard
So she couldn't take out a loan
But she posed with such flair
That the banker did stare
And tossed her poor dog a bone

I'll bet she didn't have ants like these!


  1. haha nice remix...i hope the ants were not that size...yikes...

  2. Aw Babs, sorry to creep you out. I'm sure there are no ants in your cupboard.

    Brian, those are some serious ants, aren't they?

  3. Linda,

    I know this series is new, but someday you should think about publishing it as a Redo of Nursery Rhymes for Children and Adults. I can't believe how well you do this.

    Most of all thanks for the laugh. I really needed it today:~)

  4. Thanks Sara! It is something I do think about, as well as my poetry and short stories.

    I'm glad it made you laugh. I hope things get better soon.

  5. haha that was such fun and really well done.
    Glad the dog got the bone
    And hate any type of loan
    But fyi the cat will eat the ants
    So they won't be in the cupboard or on her pants..haha

  6. Gooseberry - Thanks!

    Pat Hatt - Thanks, and nice rhyme yourself. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. She dealt with those bankers better than most these days! Loved the rewrite! the ants...not so much! ;)

  8. Nicely done and I enjoyed it. Just glad I am not that small.

  9. Hi Linda .. such fun - and love the picture .. cheers Hilary

  10. Natasha- Thank you! The giant ants were great. This was spotted in South Philly while waiting in line for our cheesesteak.

    Ann LeFlore- Thank you for visiting - I'm glad you liked it.

    Hilary- Glad you enjoyed it. Aren't those ants great!

  11. I should think ants would make a house more valuable? :)

    Fun one, Linda. And wow those South Philly ants must love cheesesteak, probalby eat 10 per ant in a sitting!


  12. I'd be relocating with those size of ants invading!

    I like Old Mother Hubbard's attitude, Linda :)

  13. Doesn't it seem like everything is going to the dogs?

    Clever redux.
