Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the kings horses and all the kings men,
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

That’s the nursery rhyme we teach our children. We then tell them that Humpty Dumpty was an egg and that once an egg is broken it can never be restored.

What a load of rubbish!

The story of Humpty Dumpty is one of intrigue, abuse of political power, and conspiracy at the highest level. When the truth was finally revealed by two intrepid journalists, it was not only Humpty Dumpty who was broken, but the incumbent of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

It happened like this: 

Senator Dumpty was the Democratic presidential nominee for the forthcoming election and, with his symmetrical good looks and cheerful demeanour, he was far better equipped to sway the adoring TV audiences than the colourless, ill-performed, Republican president, Nicky Trickson. 

So Nicky Trick sent a team of hit men to lure the good senator to the roof of the Watershed Hostelry from which they pushed him. They knew that Trickson's spin doctors would persuade the media that poor Humpty had leapt to his death rather than face ignominious defeat in the primaries

The horses and men of this sad tale were actually a black-ops squad who, disguised as an outlaw motorcycle gang, roared up and down the street on their Harleys, keeping emergency workers from attending the poor man until he had expired.

Speaking at Senator Dumpty’s state funeral, President Trixon spoke graciously about the senator's contribution to the nation. "He was a good egg," he said.
