Fatty and Skinny

June 26, 2021

I knew that Fatty and Skinny were a series of old timey rhymey things… couldn’t remember any, so looked it up (what’d we ever do without the googles?), and found this:


Fatty and Skinny went to bed.
Fatty rolled over and Skinny was dead.

Right? Coming back?

Well… that’s what I was reminded of when I harvested today’s garden veggies.

I couldn’t find any follows up to this (nor did I look very hard) … but I seem to remember at least one of them went something like this:



Mommy called the doctor and the doctor said,

One more cookie and we’ll all be dead.

I may have morphed together two completely different nursery rhymes… but there it is. Best my memory can muster.

How ’bout that zuc, though! And the tomatoes are insanely sweet. Going to be a fantastic summer.

    Postscript: I did conflate two nursery rhymes! I mixed Fatty and Skinny with the one about monkeys jumping on the bed.
