I'm surprised I remembered them all - it's a long time ago I learned them!

Me also! I think this quiz scratched parts of my brain that haven't been used since about 1984.

The clue for 'Pop goes the weasel' indicates that you're only looking for one word, rather than three.
Level 59

I didn't even try "goes the weasle" because of it.

Level 32
Apr 4, 2014
Same! I thought about it, but then saw that it was just one big word, so I skipped it.
Level 85
Sep 22, 2015
...and "goes the weasle" is accepted - despite the spelling error. ;-)
Level 84
Jan 6, 2017
Same here.
Level 69
Jun 14, 2019
Still has not been fixed..

I dont know the rhyme but heard of pop goes the weasel, so that is what immediately popped into my head. But then saw a single line, so that couldnt be the answer. I see no reason for it to be single line.

Knew it was stout, but not tommy
Level 24
Mar 14, 2020
I knew it was Tommy, but thought it was Scout, not Stout.
Level 84

I've only known it as "pease porridge hot".
Level 70
Feb 26, 2018
I've never come across pease porridge - though wiki shows it is an alternative. I often ate pease pudding when I was a child living with my parents, and very nice it was - no way would it have gone nine days without being fully consumed!
Level 84

Got destroyed on this one. Only 18/27. :-(
Level 58

I knew it was Somebody Stout...
Level 69
Jun 14, 2019
I ve seen it used in an english detective serie, midsummer murders, once, so i had a vague memory of it being stout too, plus, it rhymes
Level 85
Apr 27, 2018
I've always known it as "pudding and pie". Probably because "Christmas pie" isn't really a thing here.
Level 86
Jan 31, 2019
Knew it was pie, but had no idea what kind.
Level 82
Aug 28, 2020
Yeah, I always heard "pumpkin pie"
Level 51
Nov 22, 2020
yes pudding and pie in the UK anyway!
Level 79
Feb 23, 2021
And in Australia also
Level 56
Feb 25, 2022
Surely not! Christmas pie where I grew up in Surrey. In fact, now I come to think of it, there's a place not far from where I grew up which is actually called Christmas Pie. Not that that has anything to do with Little Jack Horner, I suppose

You are thinking of

Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie,

Kissed the girls and made them cry

Level 46

According to Skip and Flip-he was eating his "Cherry Pie".

Very hard if you are from another country ! I had only heard of 3! But somehow I managed to get 11, all by guessing, some were obvious (like door..), some i was amazed i guessed right ! (Like full of grace).

some complete guesses were nesr misses though ! Six pennies instead of 5 farthings. Little dogs tails instead of puppy dogs

You needed an equivalent assonance to Lemons/Clements, hence Farthings/Martins. You'll really struggle to find that if English is not your mother tongue.
Level 62

i have never heard half of these. Are some of them British?
Level 85
Jul 27, 2020
Lots of them I think.
Level 45
Nov 3, 2020
I grew up with it being 3 farthings
Level 86

Adjusted for inflation.
Level 79
Mar 23, 2021
All very British. English even.
Level 73
Oct 4, 2021
Not British but knew the five farthings from 1984, which I will now assume was its sole purpose ;)
Level 86
Dec 30, 2022
That's how I knew it too.

I know I have a deviant brain, but I couldn't get out of my head how these would be great for an "Unnecessary Censorship" series...
