Letter: Playground ruderies

The Independent Online
Sir: Iona Opie ('Rude stories in the playground', 11 March) suggests that the nature of playground stories may have changed. What she reports sounds much the same sort of thing - even down to one of her indexed items - as was doing the rounds in my primary school days in the late Forties. I suspect that all that has changed is what children and adults are prepared to discuss with each other.

Yours faithfully,
