Porridge Please




I have some issues with this nursery rhyme.    First of all, what the F is pease porridge?  I don’t think I know a single person who has said “I could really go for some pease porridge right now.  I don’t care if it’s hot or cold, I just want some goddamn pease porridge.”

Secondly, I’m calling bullshit on the claim that some people like it in the pot, nine days old.  That’s just disgusting.  I’m pretty sure porridge does not work like wine or cheese.   I don’t think my dinner guest would be blown away by serving a fine 9-day aged porridge.  I’m also pretty sure 9-day old porridge would give you explosive diarrhea and that’s a whole other nursery rhyme.
