“The old woman who lived in a shoe wasn’t the sole owner. There were strings attached”

"There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe” is an English nursery rhyme.

“RT@punoftheday The little old woman who lived in a shoe wasn’t the sole owner - there were strings attached http://ping.fm/xSI7F” was posted in Twitter by Diana Dell, Ph.D on April 16, 2009. The joke originated on the website Pun of the Day. There are two puns—“sole owner” (the sole of a shoe) and “strings attached” (shoelaces).

Some versions of the joke use “the old woman”—minus the word “little.” “the old woman who lived in a shoe wasn’t the sole owner. there were strings attached” was posted on Twitter by Jaimie on July 8, 2013. “The old woman who lived in a shoe wasn’t the sole owner—there were strings attached” was posted on Reddit—Cleanjokes on January 18, 2022.


Wikipedia: There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe
“There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe” is a popular English language nursery rhyme, with a Roud Folk Song Index number of 19132. Debates over its meaning and origin have largely centered on attempts to match the old woman with historical female figures who have had large families, although King George II (1683–1760) has also been proposed as the rhyme’s subject.
