Punch in suggested jocularly that the rhyme was a metaphor for the downfall of Cardinal Wolsey ; just as Wolsey was not buried in his intended tomb, so Humpty Dumpty was not buried in his shell. Professor David Daube suggested in The Oxford Magazine of 16 February that Humpty Dumpty was a "tortoise" siege engine , an armoured frame, used unsuccessfully to approach the walls of the Parliamentary held city of Gloucester in during the Siege of Gloucester in the English Civil War. This was on the basis of a contemporary account of the attack, but without evidence that the rhyme was connected.
From , the website of the Colchester tourist board attributed the origin of the rhyme to a cannon recorded as used from the church of St Mary-at-the-Wall by the Royalist defenders in the siege of The story given was that a large cannon, which the website claimed was colloquially called Humpty Dumpty, was strategically placed on the wall.
A shot from a Parliamentary cannon succeeded in damaging the wall beneath Humpty Dumpty, which caused the cannon to tumble to the ground. The Royalists or Cavaliers, "all the King's men" attempted to raise Humpty Dumpty on to another part of the wall, but the cannon was so heavy that "All the King's horses and all the King's men couldn't put Humpty together again". It has been pointed out that the two additional verses are not in the style of the seventeenth century or of the existing rhyme, and that they do not fit with the earliest printed versions of the rhyme, which do not mention horses and men.

Alice 's remark that he is "exactly like an egg" he finds "very provoking"; Alice clarifies that she said he looks like an egg, not that he is one. They discuss semantics and pragmatics : Humpty Dumpty says, "my name means the shape I am"; and later: . Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. I meant 'there's a nice knock-down argument for you! Alice was too much puzzled to say anything, so after a minute Humpty Dumpty began again. That's what I say! This passage was used in Britain by Lord Atkin in his dissenting judgement in the seminal case Liversidge v.
Anderson , where he protested about the distortion of a statute by the majority of the House of Lords. Hill and Zschernig v. It has been suggested by A. Larner that Carroll's Humpty Dumpty had prosopagnosia on the basis of his description of his finding faces hard to recognise. It's always the same. Now if you had the two eyes on the same side of the nose, for instance—or the mouth at the top—that would be some help. Humpty Dumpty has become a highly popular nursery rhyme character. American actor George L.
Fox —77 helped to popularise the character in nineteenth-century stage productions of pantomime versions, music, and rhyme. Frank Baum 's Mother Goose in Prose , where the rhyming riddle is devised by the daughter of the king, having witnessed Humpty's "death" and her father's soldiers' efforts to save him. The rhyme has also been used as a reference in more serious literary works, including as a recurring motif of the Fall of Man in James Joyce 's novel Finnegans Wake.

In the Dolly Parton song Starting Over Again , it's all the king's horses and all the king's men who can't put the divorced couple back together again. Humpty Dumpty has been used to demonstrate the second law of thermodynamics. The law describes a process known as entropy , a measure of the number of specific ways in which a system may be arranged, often taken to be a measure of "disorder".
The higher the entropy, the higher the disorder. After his fall and subsequent shattering, the inability to put him together again is representative of this principle, as it would be highly unlikely though not impossible to return him to his earlier state of lower entropy, as the entropy of an isolated system never decreases.
