Georgie Porgie

LETS HAVE AN ORGY!!!! Georgie Porgie is a nursery rhyme which some people see as an early reference to sexual harassment:

Description

The traditional nursery rhyme runs:
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 favourite and possibly his lover. George Villiers most notorious affair was with Anne of Austria (1601-1666), who was Queen Consort of France.

Cultural references

A reference to the rhyme is made in Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, Chapter five:
Orgy-porgy, Ford and fun,
Kiss the girls and make them One.
Boys at one with girls at peace;
Orgy-porgy gives release.

The rock group Toto recorded a song called "Georgy Porgy" on its 1978 debut album that includes lines from the nursery rhyme. The song, which was written by Toto keyboard player David Paich , was covered in 1999 by Eric Benét with Faith Evans on Benét's "A Day in the Life" album.

The Deep South Rapper Devin the Dude also recorded a song called "Georgy" on his album entitled "The Dude", released in 1998. The chorus to the song is the refrain, "Georgie, Georgie, Kissed the girls and made them cry."

The Jasper Fforde novel The Big Over Easy is about the "Nursery Crime" division of the Reading, Berkshire police, which deals with human characters and anthropomorphic animals whose lives are determined by their status as figures in nursery rhymes, nursery stories, fables, myths, etc. The book features a sinister mob boss (now imprisoned for life) named "Georgio Porgia." He misses the girls -- especially the kissing -- that he once enjoyed as a young man, free from captivity.

The rock band Clutch recorded a song called "Juggernaut" for their 1991 EP Pitchfork which quotes the Huxley lines above.

Comedian Andrew Dice Clay created his own version of this nursery rhyme:

Georgie Porgie, Puddin' and Pie,
Jerked off in his girlfriend's eye;
When her eye was dry and shut,
Georgie fucked that one-eyed slut.
