This could be an interesting little litmus test... everyone respond without cribbing from the videos:
Hinx mynx, the old witch winks, The fat begins to fry. Nobody home but jumping Joan, father, mother, and I!
Stick, stock, stone dead, Blind man can't see! Every knave must have a slave, You or I must be he.

I have a gut feelingthis rhyme was spawned from one of those famous Chung-dreams.

I would have to say the content probably came from a dream, but the verse would be impossible to recall from unconciousness.

I though the first line was very reminiscent of this old rhyme, even the same tune:
Jack Sprat could eat no fat, His wife could eat no lean, And so betwixt the two of them They licked the platter clean.
Not that it matters if it is.

The Hostess Nursery Ryhme sounds like something my uncle once said, which although sounds cool, was actually stupid because he was trying to quote Thomas Jefferson at the time.

All I know is that it's my answering machine greeting. No one ever comments. They just probably think, "Robert really is a nut". In fact I usally just get a dial tone. Go ahead and leave me a message, (562) 434-6563. ______ Robert

Thats pretty funny, it will keep those annoying solicitors off of your messages. I got one last night which was something like three minutes long.

It was burned into my memory the first time I saw it aired on tv. Inks, minks, the old witch winks The fat begins to fry. Nobody home but jumping Joan, Follow mother and I Stick, stalks, stone dead, Blind men can't see Every knave shall have a slave, you or I must be he.
