1. Who was the real Humpty Dumpty
2. During the mid 1300s, this bridge had more than 140 shops and houses on it. It's in Arizona.

Not till Alice, Lewis Carroll, "Through the Looking Glass", and, illustrator Sir John Tenniel, did we get HD as an egg. 2. London Bridge is in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. It USED to cross the Thames from 1831 on, but it was bought from London by Robert P. McCulloch, and moved. 3. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, but he was a bit embarrassed by it.
