Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!

I’d like to take this time to wish Dr. Seuss a “happy birthday.” Even from the grave he leaves his mark on everyone who reads his books. Thanks for bringing us Whoville, thneeds and cats in hats. Oh, most importantly, thanks for bringing us green eggs and ham as the perfect food to eat on St. Patrick’s Day!

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” – Dr. Seuss

Fun fact about Dr. Seuss: Have you ever wondered why “Green Eggs and Ham” is so repetitive? You could have simply passed it off as Seuss being Seuss, but it was actually the result of a dare/bet between him and his publisher. After the “Cat in the Hat” had only about 200 different words in it, he bet Seuss that he couldn’t write a book with fewer words. So, he wrote the whole thing with only 50 different words.
