What is the moral of the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme? How is that applicable to a human child? (1:05)

I have never worked outthe moral to Humpty Dumpty.


Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the King's horsesand all the King's men

couldn't put Humptytogether again.

All I can think is, don't siton a wall if you're an egg.


But again, how isthat applicable

to a five-year-old human?

I mean you tell that to agroup of five-year-olds,

so don't sit on awall if you're an egg.

Well, what do youmean if I'm an egg?

I'm not an egg, am I?

It doesn't make sense.

If I-- none of us are eggs.

If there was an egg there, itwouldn't make sense because you

go to the egg,don't sit on a wall.

He'd go, I'm an egg.

I can't hear you.

I've got nothing.

I've got, like,no ears, no eyes.

I don't know whatthe fuck-- what?

Don't sit on a wall.

I can't fucking hear.

I don't-- I don't--I've got nothing.

This is-- I mean nothing, this.

I can't fucking climbwalls, for a start, so--
