Bill Maher Calls Nursery Rhymes Dumb

Bill Maher Miss Muffet

Bill Maher is using the same venomous vitriol against beloved nursery rhymes that he employed when he called comic books and comic book culture dumb.  The host of HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher says Little Miss Muffet and Humpty Dumpty are just as intellectually vacuous as the comic book creations of the late, great Marvel man, Stan Lee.

Humpty Dumpty Can Go Hump Himself

“Humpty Dumpty can go hump himself.  While he’s at it, he can hump all the King’s horses and all of the king’s men.  In fact, I’m sure that little horny shithead would love to have all that anonymous sex his little egghead can handle!”

Maher was in fine form as he ranted and raved about comic book culture and nursery rhymes being basically the same thing – stupid and dumb.

Laugh Trek reminded Maher of just how cute and comforting Little Miss Muffet has been to millions of children:

Little miss Muffet she sat on her tuffet, eating her curds and whey 
Along came a spider who sat down beside her 
And frightened miss Muffet away

But the eternally acerbic comic was having none of it. 

“Really think about it.  Just picture that damn Miss Muffet – eating her crappy curds and whey.  She’s exactly like these scantily clad comic book bitches.  Why?  It’s all dumb!  Not like me.  It’s not intellectual and smart and topical.  It’s ancient, stupid crap which should be forgotten!”

And what of Jack and Jill and Little Bo-Peep?  No love for those lovable classics?  

“Bo Friggin Peep?  I don’t want to know about sheep!  I’m an animal rights activist.  People are sheep.  They are dumb!  Jack and Jill?  Do I even have to go there?  Let’s quit while we’re ahead.  In fact, let’s just quit nursery rhymes in general.  They are simply older comic books.  Enough!  Just watch my HBO TV show, it’s all anyone needs.”
