GUEST,curious eena meena mackeracka (children's rhymes) (153* d) RE: eena meena mackeracka (children's rhymes) 14 Jul 06

Does anyone know of a reliable source that could help me find the original version of the "eeny meeny" rhyme? A mini-scandal erupted near my hometown (accusing a company of racism for putting "eenie meenie minie moe" on a billboard) and I'm skeptical that the 'n-word' was a part of the rhyme's first occurance (as the accuser claimed).

Thanks for any suggestions and/or help!
