Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the King's horses and all the King's men couldn't put Humpty together again - except for Frankenstein. After the King's men could not repair Humpty, Frankenstein jumped at the chance. He grabbed the remains and scurried off to his lab to make a monster. He added yolk and artificial egg white, which had spilled out during Humpty's fall. Later that night, stormy clouds came overhead. Lightning struck the lab and the Frankenhumpty was born. It had a hard shell and an appetite for human brains.
