I was watching an episode of Sapphire and Steel and this rhyme comes on.
Goosey, goosey, gander,
Whither shall I wander?
Upstairs, and downstairs,
And in my lady's chamber.
There I met an old man
Who wouldn't say his prayers!
I took him by the left leg
And threw him down the stairs.
"Goosey goosey gander regards closet catholics in the 16th century, hence 'left foot'. The upstairs and downstairs refers to the hunt for priest holes and priests (old man) and their refusal to conform to the new protestant or common prayer book (say his prayers). Once found they were arrested, (usually along with the family) and sentenced to death."
Strange that Boone and Locke find a priest in the jungle who's dead. :-\
I was watching an episode of Sapphire and Steel and this rhyme comes on....
" Sapphire and Steel"........I remember that show when I was a little kid! That brings back memories!
A really "out-there" show!
Joanna Lumley ( Pre - "Ab Fab" ), and David McCallum as two mysterious time travelers.
Very wierd, but great series.......... I wish I could see that show again!
Next thing you know, someone will watch an episode of "Upstairs, Downstairs" and think Lost has something to do with it.
I don't see how this relates much, except for the religion part. If it were something to do more with nannys and rich kids calling them upstairs on the house intercom, I'd buy it. But this has nothing to do with "Teresa falls up the stairs".
