  • I think it is a play on words from "Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater" which is an English language nursery rhyme.

  • Peter, Peter pumpkin eater,
    Had a wife but couldn't keep her;
    He put her in a pumpkin shell
    And there he kept her very well.

    Peter, Peter pumpkin eater,
    Had another and didn't love her;
    Peter learned to read and spell,
    And then he loved her very well.[1]
