brian_d_foy's node, How do you master Perl?, has some very good discussion for someone introspective on where to go from here.

Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?

    It doesn't :-) The notion of "Humpty Dumpty as an anthropomorphic egg was an invention of Lawrence Charles Dodson (writing under the pen name "Lewis Carrol"), in his famous book _Alice In Wonderland_.

    As for the origin of the nursery rhyme, according to the following link, the rhyme was about a fallen cannon, which could not be raised back to it's firing wall during the English civil war.
