The rhyme does not explicitly state that the subject is an egg, possibly because it may have been originally posed as a riddle.

The historical events that have been linked to “Humpty Dumpty” provide excellent stories, but are based on pure speculation. Given the actual evidence at hand, it is far more likely that Humpty Dumpty was not intended to be a story, but rather just a riddle posed to children for their amusement. The answer to the riddle, as stated, is “an egg”, which is why Humpty Dumpty today is nearly always depicted as such. http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2013/04/the-origin-of-humpty-dumpty/

Very often, children's stories have a theme, like a special country or novel discoveries. Alice in Wonderland depicts the English societal forms of the time, while a Greek song tells about tram, electric scales, elevator. Humpty Dumpty may very well refer to that experiment that showed how strong atmospheric pressure is.

Humpty Dumpty is the name of a cannon. When it was fired it usually fell off the wall it was on and cracked it. Then they couldn't fix it because you can't just super glue a cannon back together.

I tried "NSDAP" for the political party controlling Germany during World War II. It didn't work, but it would be the most correct answer. (Okay, the second most correct answer after "National-Sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei", but no one would type that in, I guess).

Anyone else remember the song where background singers sang "Muhammed, Muhammed, Muhammed Ali," and then a man spoke the lyrics, "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, Muhammed, Muhammed, Muhammed Ali." I tried googling it but it didn't come up. If memory serves, the song came out in the mid-1960s.

Oops accidently deleted my comment instead of replying, anyways, if you look it up you will need to scroll to you see the land area table in which case China is second. If you take away all the water in Canada it ranks 4th. Since the quiz says land area the answer is China. If you even check the wikiepedia page about area it shows its land area as higher than Canada's.

Another nitpicker here - I immediately knew the answer but eggplants can be several colors besides purple - white, pink, orange, yellow, or green. The commercial ones in the US are usually the honking big purple ones but their name originated from the smaller white ones that look like eggs.
