Wolp - Nursery Rhymes....

<HTML>Yup, they're going to be unionised. And beofre Jon beats me to it, does anybody else fancy trying to beat the long wait for WOLP by inventing our own?

Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water,
Jack got sacked due to privitisation of the water industry,
And Jill went picketing after...

Hmm. Needs some work, I think.

In a similar thread - just imagine if the Pied Piper was a London Cabbie: "Lead a load of rats south of the river at this time of the mid-thirteenth century? You must be joking, guv."</HTML>

<HTML>Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
And in the absence of correct health and safety procedures
Due to working in a non-unionised environment
Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall.

Various unqualified staff attempted to repair the damage
But demarcation agreements meant that none
Of all the kings horses and men
Had sufficient skills to be able to put Humpty back together again.

And unfortunately the fire brigade were on strike that day
In pursuit of their entirely justified pay claim.</HTML>
