It was a cold Tuesday morning in Boogleville. The wind was picking up, and the rain lashing relentlessly on the small town.
It was then that Humpty Dumpty decided to sit on the wall.
Dumpty, aged 16, was allegedly "trying to set a world record," his sister Foomty Goomty later said. "He wouldn't listen. I told him that a wall was no place for a young egg to be hanging out," his mother explained.
Unrelentingly, Dumpty was later seen by eyewitnesses sitting on the wall. He was there for about 3 hours before he had a great fall.
"I called all the king's horses. The king's men, too," reported fire chief Ingly Mingly, at the scene of the fatal accident.
It took 10 minutes for the king's horses and men to get there, but after extensive medical aid, Dumpty was not able to be put together again.
"It's a tragic tale of eggs, walls, and kings," Mingly reported later. "Let this be a lesson to all the young eggs out there who are trying to be cool."
Funeral services for Humpty Thelonius Dumpty will be this Sunday at 3:00 at Borial's Memorial.
