Tales from the Crypt

Ok so this is so the teacher in me coming out, but as I was reading the twins a book of old-school nursery rhymes I came to the disturbing realization that there were some sick people writing these! Maybe it was a sign of the times or something, but all the rhymes are chock full of violence and/or bad parenting!: throwing an old man down the stairs, a baby falling out of a tree, kids falling down a hill and a mom who whips her kids before bed! How on earth would you explain these to young children who are learning language and meaning!? LOL Then there is "Hey Diddle Diddle," which clearly the writer was on an acid trip! 

And I love how they are all surrounded by cute pictures.... Craziness!
