friday fun fact

dr. seuss's "green eggs and ham"
was the first book i ever read

there is your friday fun fact!


now come on, 
i would not make your friday fun fact as simple as that

there is something else special about "green eggs and ham"
it only uses 50 words!!!

no joke!

count them.
i dare you.

dr. seuss was challenged by his editor 
Bennett Serf
to write a book using fewer words than the 225 he used in 
"cat in the hat"

and by george!
dr. seuss did just that.

the fifty words are:
a, am, and, anywhere, are, be, boat, box, car, could, dark, do, eat, eggs, fox, goat, good, green, ham, here, house, I, if, in, let, like, may, me, mouse, not, on, or, rain, Sam, say, see, so, thank, that, the, them, there, they, train, tree, try, will, with, would and you.

happy friday everyone!
now go read a book!
