Green Eggs and Ham Turns 50

by thiszine

Dr. Seuss’s quintessential book for children, Green Eggs and Ham, turns 50 today. The book was written after Suess’s editor bet him he couldn’t write a book containing only 50 words. Too bad Suess died before the advent of Twitter’s 140 character updates. He’d be in good company.

As an extra special treat, watch Jesse Jackson memorialize Green Eggs and Ham in the video below.
