Mary and Mother Goose plan the garden around Oscar's trash can.

Oscar contrary

Oscar quite contrary.

Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary is an English nursery rhyme with no clear origins and meaning that was first published in the mid 18th century. Some believe the rhyme is a religious allegory of Catholicism, while others believe it is a reference to Mary, Queen of Scots or Mary 1 of England.

The most common form of the rhyme is:

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,

How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.
