Subject: Jumprope Chant archive
I found a copy of the "Jumprope Hypertext Archive (click)," which used to be available at the Website of the University of West Florida. It dropped off the Web, possibly because the professor who posted it moved on to greener pastures. I don't feel right posting it, since I haven't been able to contact the author for permission (and the copy I found has all the HTML stripped off).
This is a fascinating archive of chants kids use while jumping rope. It was much more colorful in the HTML version, so I've tracked down the author and asked him if maybe it could be posted somewhere.
