SALEM, Ore. — The nursery rhyme proved right: Humpty Dumpty couldn't be put together again.
But the owner of an Oregon theme park vows to build Humpty anew.
Last weekend, two men planning a photograph jumped on the wall where the statue of rebar, cement, sand and plaster had sat for 40 years.
And, you know how it goes: Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
Sculptor Roger Tofte told Salem's Statesman Journal that Humpty was in too many pieces to fix, but the two men offered to pay for a new one. He said it will take a month to build.
The 84-year-old Tofte has been running the Enchanted Forest along Interstate 5 south of Salem since 1971. It has 20 acres of rides and sculptures based on fairy tales and nursery rhymes.
