Odd News: Humpty Dumpty of Enchanted Forest Takes A.....

By Jim McCoy Thu 10th July News
The nursery rhyme proved right: Humpty Dumpty couldn't be put together again. But the owner of an Oregon tourist attraction 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 tells the Salem Statesman Journal (http://stjr.nl/1mDcaL5 ) Humpty was in too many pieces to fix, but the two men offered to pay for a new one. He says it'll 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's 20 acres of rides and sculptures based on fairy tales and nursery rhymes.
