Dr. Seuss Day

350

I do not like green eggs and ham …

I should not eat them, fast food man.
I wish that they would go away.
You wish I wasn’t FDA.
I will shut you down, that is the plan.
I will shut you down but first I need the can.

Four Score …

and one more score plus 10 plus one more year years ago, Theodor Seuss Geisel was born.
We knew him as Dr. Seuss, the prolific perfectionist who influenced generations with 46 greatly love children’s books but he also worked as an illustrator on advertising campaigns and as a political cartoonist during the Second World War.

March 2nd was his birthday and is now Dr. Seuss Day.
Why not celebrate this literary giant of so many childhoods by donning a blue wig and red onesie and energetically jump about all day.

Perhaps go down to Denny’s and order off of the menu in rhyme. It will be adorable.
Or draw a political cartoon with the condiments.
If you are dressed as Thing 1 or Thing 2 as well, don’t jump about directly after eating. That may not work out.

If you don’t have the energy to jump around all day or you don’t own a red onesie and think jumping around naked at Denny’s may not be understood to be a celebration of Theodor Seuss Geisel’s life, then simply stay at home and make your cat wear a trilby.

Nick Jackson was born in the UK, the land of gunpowder tea, but moved to America to escape exploding cups of tea. He now lives in Florida where he attempts come to terms with concepts such as how flat everything is and whether the alligator is a golfer's natural predator. Nick has written for Monkey Pickles from the beginning, as established in Cern, Switzerland, with the discovery of the long-sought Monkey Pickle Particle. He is somewhat "freaked out" by writing in the third person. Nick is motivated to write for the pleasure of the experience rather than to pay the bills, but he does recognize that pleasure is still not an acceptable method of payment in most respectable retail outlets. He hopes to raise a smile or two before being ejected from the store.
