Dr Seuss Green Eggs and Ham
Here is a little quote to get things started and hopefully put a smile on your face:
Do you like green
eggs and ham?
I do not like them,
I do not like green
eggs and ham!
Here is a little info about Green Eggs and Ham that you may or not know: Green Eggs and Ham is a best-selling and critically acclaimed book by Dr. Seuss (a pen-name of Theodor Seuss Geisel), first published on August 12, 1960.
As of 2001, according to Publishers Weekly, it was the fourth best-selling English-language children's book of all time. The story has appeared in several animated videos starting with 1973's Dr. Seuss on the Loose: The Sneetches, The Zax, Green Eggs and Ham starring Paul Winchell as the voice of both Sam I Am and the unnamed recipient of his constant pestering.
A character known as 'Sam I Am' pesters Sam's friend to taste green eggs and ham. The unnamed character declines, claiming to dislike green eggs and ham. However, the persistent Sam I Am will not cease following Sam's friend around and trying to encourage him to try the green eggs and ham, asking him if he will sample the dish if he does it in various locations (boat, rain, train, dark, tree, car, box, house, here or there, anywhere) and with an assortment of dining partners (goat, fox, mouse).
At the end, Sam's friend gives in to Sam I Am's pestering and takes a bite of green eggs and ham, which he finds he does indeed like.
Pass the green eggs, please.
