Friday Frivolity: A Seusstastic Birthday

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Green eggs and ham, I like them not,

But your wise books I loved a lot.

Your “One Fish, Two Fish” gave to me

Proof of my own literacy

And though my rhymes are blech as snot,

 Your books are gems for old and tot.

Aren’t you glad I’m not a poet?

How many of us giggled with Sam I Am, learned important lessons from Horton and the Lorax, and received Oh, the Places You’ll Go! as a graduation gift?

To this day, I still laugh when I see this image of the Grinch at his most vile (from the 1966 animated Christmas special) , and I can hear the narrator’s voice repeating Seuss’s words:

“And then he got an idea. An awful idea. The Grinch had a wonderful, awful idea.”

May all our ideas make us this happy.
