Here's a fresh batch of obnoxious kid rhymes from Autralia, The Soviet Union and Rio. Thanks again to everyone for your submissions!

SOVIET UNION

Pervoye maya, pervoye maya,
kuritsa hromaya
a petuh kosoy
podavilsya kolbasoy

English Translation

First of May, first of May
a lame hen
and a crossed-eyed rooster
choked on a sausage

Boys are strong,
like King Kong!

Girls are weak,
chuck 'em in the creek!

(This can also be reversed, for sexual equality.)

Take off the general's pants!
