Meme Express: Nonsense or Pat A Cake

This is an anniversary/going away cake!


Meme Express's word of the week is "Nonsense," and nothing is more nonsensical than the nursery rhyme Pat A Cake.

Pat a cake, Pat a cake, baker's man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can;
Pat it and prick it and mark it with a 'B',
And put it in the oven for Baby and me.

*First off, who pats cakes? The last thing I'd want to do is put my hands in gooey cake batter and pat it. I might pat sugar cookie batter, but not sticky cake.

*Secondly, if you bake a cake as fast as you can, it's not going to taste good. Cake takes time to rise. Haste makes waste, right? I sure don't want my baker rushing the job. 

*Finally, how are you going to mark it with a 'B' before you put it in the oven? Why mark it when babies can't even read? I don't know about you, but I use icing to label my cakes. 
 
If you ask me, this chant is 
NONSENSE.

Most nursery rhymes are nonsense if you ask me. What about a dish running away with a spoon? Now that's nonsense!

Most nursery rhymes are subject to question, including this one. :)

I'm posting on Firefox and everything is fine from here.

I just looked it up. That's how it really goes. My, for all this time I thought it was "Patty Cake."

Robin said...

That is one amazing looking cake!

And it's NOT patty-cake? I've had it wrong all these years too I'm afraid.

Oh please break your rules. I'm only home for twenty four hours and I'd like a rush order - devils food cake with cream cheese frosting. Slap on a B if you want to but, well, I'll wait at the door.

As I think most rhymes are right? HOw about Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater? Maybe you should dissect that one next!
