Let’s see if any of you know this rhyme called “1st is The Worst”

Which one do you say? First is the worst, Second is the best, Third is the one with the… a) wedding dress, b) hairy chest or, c) treasure chest ?

My kids and their friends were debating this one. They disagreed over which answer is the most popular… a, b, or c. Google seems to know b the most. Anyone out there know this rhyme? If so, which ending do you say?

Inquiring minds want to know!

PS I asked my friends this question on Facebook and no one answered! Which makes me think it’s a new rhyme that this current generation says. I had never heard it before my kids taught it to me either.

    Wow, can believe I still remember that. We would always do it when we were standing in line up order. The first would be zero the hero, second will be first the worst so on so forth. And if we got something we didn’t like, we would beg the teacher to change our spot. Good memories.
