Humpty Busters

Couldn't sleep, so I checked out an episode of Mythbusters my ReplayTV was kind enough to record for me. It was the episode folks were talking about last night! The one where Buster falls out of an airplane liferaft at 400 feet. Poor Buster completely disintegrated, he shattered.

"There were pieces of Buster all over the ground; he was Humpty Dumpty," said Queen Fachless.

"And all the king's horses?"

"Useless."

I've always loved the visual of a bunch of horses trying to reassemble poor Humpty. Or Buster, in this case, a silicone crash-test-dummy. In my head, they are always sitting up on their tails, but slumped over a bit like apes, their heads bowed in concentration. They fumble with their hooves, helplessly pushing pieces of eggshell around.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty head a great fall
And all the king's horses
And all the king's men
Had omelets.
