...and a silver sixpence in her shoe[edit]

I was curious as to why the final line of the rhyme was removed fairly recently. It's only given a passing mention now in the article and no one has reverted the change or given an explanation as to why it was removed as far as I can see. -- (talk) 13:29, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Popular culture[edit]

This section is a list of trivial instances where the theme is mentioned, appearing to violate WP:In popular culture's admonition: "passing mentions of the subject in books, television or film dialogue, or song lyrics should be included only when that mention's significance is itself demonstrated with secondary sources". Is there any reason to keep any of this? Clean Copytalk 12:33, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Something old is itself part and parcel of popular culture. I can’t imagine popular culture restrictions applying as stringently to something falling purely with in that field. Pandeist (talk) 03:54, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
