Hi Profesor, hope you are feeling better. I chose the Muffin Man, it is technically a nursery rhyme. I remembered some of the examples being nurses rhymes. Let me know if I need to pick something else.
Genre: Mystery/ Thriller
Would involve the different food ingredients wanting to track down their missing family members who the muffin man had abducted. The setting would be a present-day kitchen and surrounding areas.
Genre: Mafia/ Comic Noir
Set in a present-day New York type of city. Would involve the Muffin Man who had taken out fellow mafia members: The Butcher, The Baker and The Candlestick Maker who had all just been found dead in a tub.
