  1. Jack and Jill were orphans, in a small town. They lived at an orphanage near the well. One day their orphan mother asked them to fetch some water for her plants. Since this was a poor town, they had to use an old well to get water instead of a faucet. So they went up the hill to get the water. Silly jack thought Jill wasn’t pulling up the bucket fast enough so he started telling her to pull faster. Jill got annoyed and pushed Jack of the hill. Then when she saw him break his head- or crown, – she felt guilty so she tumbled down after him.

  3. The story behind the really Jack and Jill story is that, Jack and Jill had just gotten married and had just bought a new house far away in the forest. The water in their house was not working so they had to go up the hill to the river on the other side. On their way to the river Jack had been wearing his favorite crown that had been his great, great grandfathers, who had been the king of Britburg which was a far away village. While walking up the hill Jack tripped on a turtle and lost his balance. Jack had begun to fall and grabbed on to Jill. Since Jack was a lot bigger then Jill she fell also and landed on Jacks crown and broke it. Both Jack and Jill fell down the hill but both were okay.

  4. Jack and Jill are two joyful, happy children who are siblings. They lived in 1900’s, and their mom asked them to get some water from the well at the top of the hill next to their house. They couldn’t afford running water in their house because it was expensive at the time. After Jill got their water from the well up the hill, Jack tripped on his shoelace and fell down the hill breaking his favorite crown that he always wore on his head. Of course, the crown wasn’t real so it could be broken easily. As Jill saw Jack rolling down the hill, she put the bucket of water down and came tumbling down the hill to see if Jack was okay.

  5. Jack and Jill are nine year old twins. They are having a pool party at their house for their birthday. While they swam around in the pool they decided to make water balloons. When they were about to go inside to the sink their mother told them they couldn’t go inside because they were soaking wet. She told them they were going to have to get a pail and go up the hill down the street and fetch a pail of water in the well. Once they got to the top of the hill Jill bumped into Jack. As soon as Jill was about to apologize, Jack called Jill an elephant three times. After the fourth time Jill became furious and just as Jack put his birthday crown on and filled the pail with water Jill pushed Jack down the hill. As Jack tumbled down the hill his crown fell off. Back at the top of the hill Jill started to walk down the hill as she laughed hysterically. Jill did not watch where she was going and tripped on a small rock. Jill tumbled all the way to the bottom of the hill and landed on Jacks birthday crown. After this they decided not to make water balloons and they walked the whole way home and walk straight to their rooms and went to bed.

  6. Jack and Jill were two very rich people. They weren’t stubborn nor greedy. In fact, they were very helpful and caring. They loved to do charity work together and to help others. One of the charity jobs were to get 50 pails of water from the well on the hill to get for the homeless. But one time Jack dropped the pail and slipped on the water tumbling down the hill, landing on another bucket they have prepared before-hand, causing him to break his royal crown. Jill thought it looked really fun and didn’t think he should have all the exitment and so she jumped down the hill after Jack.

Since they like to play, when they get out they run around. Jack falls in a hole and finds a rusty old crown. He puts the crown on his head and they both run up the hill. Jack pulls up the rope to get the water. Jill pours the water into the bucket, but she spills some. Jack slips on the mud that the water created. He rolls down the hill. His crown falls off of his head, and rolls down in front of him. Jack lands on his crown, which is sideways, and snaps it in half. Jill thinks it looks fun, so she drops the bucket and tumbles down the hill just like him. They walk back up the hill and get more water. When they get home, their mom is really mad because Jack and Jill are covered in mud, scratches, and bruises. She makes the soup anyway and they all have a pleasant lunch.

  22. Jack and Jill were normal and adventurous children who lived in England in the year 1942. They lived on a farm next to a large and imposing hill that had a well on top. Jack loved sweets, and was almost constantly going to the dentist to fix cavities, get his teeth crowned, and get braces and other such dental implements. Jill, on the other hand was a good girl, but she was a tomboy, and loved to explore. On day, the 14th of October was an especially bad day of bombing. The Germans bombed much of London, razing the city to the ground. They hit the water supply station that supplied water to London and the surrounding countryside. Because of this, Jack and Jill were tasked by their father to go up the hill and fill up the water pail with water for the animals. As they traveled up the hill with the heavy pail, Jill was visibly struggling. They reached the top of the hill and filled up the pail. As they went down the hill, Jill stumbled, and the pail crashed forward into Jack, who went tumbling down the mountain, breaking the crown off his teeth as he tumbled down the side of the hill. Now, Jill, thrown off balance by the absence of Jack, was stumbling around trying to keep the pail (like a pig trough) upright, and while she was doing this, wasn’t looking at the ground, and she accidentally stepped into a gopher hole, and tumbled down the mountain after Jack. It seems to simple, but that is the real reason behind the rhyme.

Then Jill said “I’ll go with him.” So the kids went out and found the well in the field. They went over to it and there was a cover on it. The cover read ‘For emergency use only’ on it. There was a hole in the middle that said ‘pull here to remove lid’. Jack pulled on it but it woulden’t come off. “It won’t come off” said Jack while trying to pull off of the lid. “Here ill help” said Jill, and she and Jack pulled together untill the lid came off and they went tumbling down the hill. “OWW OOF EECH OWCH” they said as they were falling down the hill. Once they reached the bottom Jack figured out that he broke his birthday crown his teacher gave him. “Ooh Ms. Hickelfritz (the teacher) is going to be sooo mad.” said Jill and went running off to her mom to tell her what happened.

  30. Hello all,

    I was quite amused when I decided to google my new business online tonight, and found out that Zebra Wink exists in many forms! I actually am the owner of Zebra Wink. I am an artist. A painter, actually. I paint whimsical murals and other fun stuff in people’s houses. I just started out, so I don’t have anything on my website yet, but I have lots of pictures that are just waiting to be shown!

    Oh, and why “Zebra Wink”? Well, on one job, I had a lot of critters to paint. I was having some trouble with one of the zebra’s eyes, and it ended up winking. She became one of the people’s favorite critters on the mural. Voila! Zebra Wink!

    Keep up the great work! And keep on thinking creatively!
