50 Word Genius

In 1960 Dr. Seuss collected on a bet.
He had written an entire book using only 50 words.
This work of genius was called:

Green Eggs and Ham

He wrote many other wonderful books, and we love most of them.

Happy 105th birthday, Dr. Seuss, this oobleck's for you!

It turns out that it IS possible to read that book one too many times. Or a hundred. ^_^ But it's still fun to parody.

I think my fave Seuss related moment is in the Addams Family II when she's reading the Cat in the Hat to Pubert, turns the page and says, "Oh no. He lives." ^_^
