...all totally wrong!

He says that nowhere, nowhere at all in the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme does it say anything about Humpty Dumpty being an egg. Or even a vaguely egg-shaped person.
I've checked back over the wording of the Humpty nursery rhyme and (as you can see from the words below) he is not only right, he is absolutely right!

"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the King's men
Could not put Humpty together again."


So where did this mistaken belief that Humpty Dumpty was an egg, come from? Can anyone explain it? It's time future generations of children were told the truth!
