Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss

I'm sure you're gonna think I'm nuts, but tonight the poem Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss popped into my head but it's all jumbled up. Since it has been over 40 years since I read the book, it's no wonder. About all I can remember is this.....

I do not like green eggs and ham
I do not like green eggs and ham, Sam-I-Am

No, that doesn't sound right either.

It won't go away, so now I'm obsessed with knowing how it goes.


Do you remember any of the verses to the poem?

Please, please, please tell me what you know!

Not only is it a good book, but it's worth reading every now and then - especially when there's nothing on TV. Except for the Muppets & Sesame Street! Give me Animal playing the drums any time (as in their rendition of JH's version of "All along the watchtower")

There is a great deal more substance to Seuss than much of what I have read in the last five years.

Not all who wander are lost.
