Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Nursery rhyme contest aims to oust violence

Preschool channel Nick Jr thinks the time has come to end the bloodshed [found in traditional nursery rhymes]. It yesterday challenged the country to write new rhymes that can oust the "Pulp Fiction"-themed nursery rhymes of yesteryear.

Although reportedly supporting the initiative, Michael Rosen is quoted as saying, "Let's have pneumatic drills going through our feet, trees falling on us, and people going to bed and bumping their head. This is the language of folk and fairy story - kids like this. They help us explore our fears and delights."
