    who knew...
    My recent quest to find upcoming historicals is in synic with AAR's ATBF. I really need to make a note to check that page on monday, first I missed pirates and now this.

    tara led me to vanessa jaye that sent me to the message board that ended with the column

    There was an old lady who swallowed a bird.
    How absurd! To swallow a bird!
    She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
    That wiggled and jiggled and tickled insider her.
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
    I don't know why she swallowed a fly.
    I guess she'll die.

    1. There's a halloween song very similiar. Once my son was doped at the dentist office and he sang the whole song for everyone in the waiting room

    2. There used to be a cartoon of the song. It was a very simple, almost shadow puppet-looking thing that showed the old lady eating and eating and eating...

      Cool.

    3. I use to sing this song to my son when he was very young an baby. I learnt this song in kindergarden myself. When I got to the fly part I'd tap him on the nose after drawing a few circles in the air. And of course I'd tickle him at the wiggling spider part. lol. Thanks for the memory. :-) She actually swallows quite a few more animals (a horse, cow, dog, then the cat, etc).

      You should keep checking back on the ABF Messageboards, there are a lot more interesting dissions going on since I made that blog post.
