[Untitled][edit]

Why is "Haddocks' Eyes" the main title of this page? It seems to me that if we believe the White Knight's account, the title of the page should be the same as "the name of the song", that is "The Aged Aged Man". The other three titles should probably be redirects, but "Haddocks' Eyes" shouldn't be the main title because it's only what the name of the song is called. 216.59.225.251 (talk) 23:36, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

It was likely selected because it's the first of the four names that the White Knight gives. I suspect 'A-Sitting on a Gate' would be the most widely-recognised title, although personally I find the convolution of using 'Haddocks' Eyes' quite charming.Markington (talk) 17:24, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

Marty Feldman[edit]

I'm curious if there is any specific reason for including Marty Feldman in the "See Also" section?

No idea. It was added by an anonymous user in this edit on 14 April 2007, and it's remained ever since. I've removed it now. Shreevatsa (talk) 14:42, 30 November 2010 (UTC)


I am surprised that the first line of the poem is missing: I'll tell thee everything I can/There's little to relate/I met an aged aged man....

I suspect this edit may have been made by mistake. I've reinstated the first line. Markington (talk) 17:10, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
