Happy Birthday, Sam I Am!

Today is the 50th birthday of the Dr. Seuss classic “Green Eggs and Ham” which is undoubtedly one of the most amazing literary masterpieces of all time. Seuss wrote the genius gem after his publisher bet him that he couldn’t write a book using only 50 words. A fine 5o words they are!

Dr. Seuss was a true poet and a gentleman of letters. He was a master of surrealism and a great hero of mine. 

I could not, would not, in a house.
I would not, could not, with a mouse.
I would not eat them with a fox.
I would not eat them in a box.
I would not eat them here or there.
I would not eat them anywhere.
I would not eat green eggs and ham.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.

I’ll be celebrating the book’s birthday by introducing it to my niece — Thing 2 — for the first time! She’s nearly 2 and it’s high time she fell in love with Seuss. I’m sure we’ll read it about 50 times.

50 words, 50 times, 50 years.

Maybe I’ll be a real go-getter and whip up a batch of green-egg cookies … mine will be like these:

Rather than like these fancy-schmancy hams. Hey, I’m not that ambitious!

I gotta save my energy for repeated animated readings. My niece refuses to let others read to her, claiming they don’t do it right. Naturally this is an enormous source of pride for this book-worm Aunty.

Enjoy this book’s birthday, y’all! Maybe a ham & spinach omelet for dinner??

Green Eggs and Ham is available on amazon!

Dr. Seuss Bible: Sunday AM Punk Rock Gospel Blog

Thanks for popping in to this Sunday’s Punk Rock Gospel Blog. I meant to talk about love and gay marriage but was hoping to post the most beautiful wedding photo in the world and didn’t get permission in time. No one could see this photo and begrudge the gorgeous couple of their rights, their day, their love.  If they’re willing to share, it’lll be worth the wait.

Enjoy the Dr. Seuss Bible. We could all use a few giggles and some forgiving energy this week after the crazy stuff that’s been going on. The ignorance! The oppression! The crap.

I’d dig the Bible more if it was written (and illustrated) by Dr. Seuss.

Amen! What could be more goof-blessed than Seuss via Kids in the Hall? Goof abounds!

Have a great Sunday y’all. Take a breath, have a laugh.


Be the love.
