Loop Table Get All Text Not Working Well?

I have a table like so:

  <tbody><tr><td id="589" class="btn btn-primary"><label>tarts</label><tr><td>class: Article</td></tr><tr><td>case: Accusative</td></tr></td></tr></tbody>

And need to get the Text from each element. I have this code which returns too many results like so in FireFox console:

0: Array[3]
    0: "tartsclass: Articlecase: Accusative"  //yes it's run together like this
    1; "class: Article"
    2. "case: Accusative"
    length: 3
1: Array[1]
    0: "class: Article"
    length: 1
Array[1]
    0: "class: Accusative"
    length: 1

My goal is to extract the text and build a Json string somehow...

[my code]
       function getTableData(table) {
            var data = [];
            table.find('tr').each(function (rowIndex, r) {
                var cols = [];
                $(this).find('th,td').each(function (colIndex, c) {
                    cols.push(c.textContent);
                });
                data.push(cols);
            });
            return data;
        }

[Usage]
     getTableData($('#table1 table:last'));

It's not clear what the array should be like.

And the HTML makes no sense either

The html has nested TR's inside TR's which is invalid html.
