Foot and Mouth Disease has become such a serious and sad problem in Britain and most of Europe, that it was inevitable that they would come up with some humour on the topic. So, without further ado, here is the first Writeup on the topic:

The Foot and Mouth Nursery Rhymes:

Mary had a little lamb
She called it baby Abby
They burned it in a great big pit
Cos its mouth and feet were scabby.

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn't know where they're located
But Tony Blair has said "fair's fair
If they're burnt she'll be compensated"

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Watching her livestock burn
When along came a vet
Who confiscated her pet
Will fairy tale folk ever learn?

Mary's pigs had foot and mouth
'This crisis', cried she, 'Needs tackling
'Now all I've got is one black field
'And fourteen tons of crackling....

Mary had some little lambs
but alas she had to burn em
she also had some nuclear fuel
and gave that to the Germans

Farmer Jones has got no sheep
Isn't life a drag?
Coz they're all burning in a field....
He's got nothing left to shag.

Mary's lamb had foot and mouth,
The vet came round and shot it.
But Mary's dad had shagged it first,
And now her sisters got it ...........
