Douglas Crockford, who writes about programming, the Internet, and such (e.g., “When you get bored, click something. If that doesn’t help, then turn off your computer immediately”), has a fun set of revised nursery rhymes: “Nursery Rhymes for Our Times.”
The nursery rhymes we teach our children are so archaic as to appear to be nonsense. The references to animals like sheep and pigs and the obsolete professions like pipers and kings fail to inform modern muchers and muchettes about the one thing they need in order to live full productive lives: technology.
I grinned as I read them.
