: Can anybody give the whole nine on "Ring around the Rosey"?
: The archive on this site does have a few notations but they lead nowhere and then to a dead web site link.
googled it and came up with the ol' standby of bubonic plague, blisters, posies
to eliminate odors etc etc which I think is just hogwash. All the hits on Google
seem to contain cuts and pastes of the same wash from the same hog.
Can't say I've ever heard the expression "Ring around the Rosey" - it could be a New World saying.
