Mensagem:  I´d like to hear especially from the natives, who know about Humpty Dumpty... is this nursery rhyme still popular in the USA ? What about in the UK ?
I´ve been reseraching into the real meaning of "humpty dumpty"...there are varied theories about it. One theory is that it may have mocked a nobleman who fell from favor with a king.

What do you guys think about that ?
Is it popular in the UK ? in the USA ?
Is TY stressed ? (HumpTY DumpTY ? )

Thank you in advance
