The butcher, the baker, the chandelier maker? theoretically those work descriptions could refer to three women, however they don’t: The nursery rhyme is about three dudes shower in a tub. That wasn’t constantly like this!

Albert Jack, author of the new book What Caesar Did for My Salad, states the “tub” in original “Rub-a-dub dub” limerick referred to a peep present that to be a clip of traveling cultural fairs.

You are watching: Who were the 3 men in the tub

While the was possible that 3 men noted homosexual entertainment, he mentioned that the initial 15th century luck was: “Rub-a-dub dub 3 maids in a tub, and who do you think to be there? The butcher, the baker, the candlestick-maker, and every one of them unable to do to the fair.” The rhyme to be sanitised through the Victorians, he added.

I’m just surprised that by the 20th century in America, it hadn’t been changed to “Three asexual gender-neutral us in different bathing compartments.”
