|Kate, immaculate in black and white|
Yesterday, the day after the full moon, saw Prince William, pregnant Kate, and Harry attend the inauguration of the Warner Bros Studios in Hertfordshire. There they fooled around with Harry Potter wands and Wills got to sit in the Dark Knight Batmobile. (mail on line)
Wills noted during his "formal opening speech" that "To be honest, I’m over the moon just to have seen the real Batmobile and Batpod – you don’t do baby seats for those cars, do you, by any chance"
I've written about Aleister Crowley recently. Crowley believed, probably quite rightly, that "Every nursery rime contains profound magical secrets which are open to every one who has made a study of the correspondences of the Holy Qabalah. To puzzle out an imaginary meaning for this "nonsense" sets one thinking of the mysteries". He actually wrote a whole chapter in one of his books (here) which dissected various rhymes and his interpretation of their allegorical meanings.
It got me thinking about Wills' comment, what with all the Harry Potter magic, but, unfortunately, Aleister never covered Hey Diddle Diddle, The Cat and the Fiddle, The Cow jumped over the Moon, The little dog laughed to see such Craft, And the Dish ran away with the Spoon.
Others though believe that Hey Diddle is "connected with Hathor worship; that it refers to various constellations (Taurus, Canis minor, the Big Dipper etc.); that it describes the Flight from Egypt...". Though others would say that was nonsense. (wiki)

It surely is a mystery.
