Thread Name: Pop Goes the Weasel - Meaning?
Subject: Pop Goes the Weasel - Meaning?
Here's an odd one that I'm sure some knowledgeable 'Catter can answer. Does anyone know the origin of the nursery song, "Pop Goes the Weasel?" My suspicion has always been that it has historical/political roots (probably from England), like "Sing a Song of Sixpence." Anybody?
