THE DARK ORIGINS OF NURSERY RHYMES

Now for something completely different.  Today Judy Sellins and Dave Turco will bring you the dark side of nursery rhymes.   For centuries authors have been able to criticize authority under the guise of children's poems and stories that would have otherwise landed them in jail or worse.

From Baa Baa Black Sheep  to Old Mother Hubbard there are surprising stories behind the actual meanings of the poems.  Which Mary was so contrary?  who were Jack and Jill? and why was anyone going around a mulberry bush?  These questions and lots more will be answered on The Unknown Zone.
