Georgie-Porgie, Puddin' N Pie...
dodged the draft
and got real high
When the real men came out to play
Georgie Porgie ran away.

2. Nursery rhymes are satire and parody...
... of a bygone era, for the most part:

3. I thought this referred to one of the Kings George ... guess not:
Georgie Porgie is a nursery rhyme which some people see as an early reference to sexual harassment:

Georgie Porgie, Puddin' and Pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry,
When the boys came out to play
Georgie Porgie ran away.

The lyrics to "Georgie Porgie" are thought to refer to the courtier George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham (1592-1628). King James I took Villiers as his lover, though his most notorious affair was with Anne of Austria (1601-1666), who was Queen Consort of France.

4. Funny to Find out...
... that even in the most oppressive regimes, humor assails those who take themselves too seriously.

8. I honestly don't know...
... whether to laugh, dial a therapist for you, or both!

9. I Think His Point May Be...
... that McCain no longer belongs in the category of "when the real men came out to play," as he once did.
