Proof that Brian IS in Springfield, MA

See, I warned you! 'e's 'ere mate!

I do not like them in a box.
I do not like them with a fox.
I do not like them in a boat.
I do not like them with a goat.
I do not like them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere.
I do not like green eggs and SPAM.
I do not like them, Sam-I-am.

(He only used 50 words in the book - 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, you.)

And on a historico-legal note. This just in from Wikipedia - - -

"On September 21, 2007, U.S. District Court Judge James Muirhead used Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham" in his court ruling after receiving an egg in the mail from prisoner Charles Jay Wolff (61, an Orthodox Jew). Muirhead ordered the egg destroyed as he stated in his judgment: "I do not like eggs in the file. I do not like them in any style. I will not take them fried or boiled. I will not take them poached or broiled. I will not take them soft or scrambled/Despite an argument well-rambled. No fan I am/Of the egg at hand. Destroy that egg! Today! Today! Today I say! Without delay!"

I've been spending my time struggling with a first mash, actually. But I should really get back on both Brian and Michael Sightings!

Why be limited to Brian?

And the skills you learn playing with a still picture are adaptable to MashCasting.

Hey Jeanna! Would you run this by the powers that be, like Sis Admin G, and see if we could have another Gallery to play in like a "Python Sightings Gallery" or a category even broader?

Since there seem to be many talented artists on this site, perhaps people's drawings could be put in the same gallery. Together with Python Sightings, it would be full of original artwork.

I always feel bad cluttering up the Michael Palin gallery. It would also encourage more experimentation.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE
DISTRICT OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

Civil No. 06-cv-321-PB

Charles Jay Wolff
v.
New Hampshire Department of Corrections, et al.

ORDER

Plaintiff has filed a hard-boiled egg as part of his preliminary injunction request.

Discussion

No fan I am
Of the egg at hand.
Just like no ham (ed. Did the Judge say "SPAM"?)
On the kosher plan.
This egg will rot
I kid you not.
And stink it can
This egg at hand.
There will be no eggs at court
To prove a clog in your aort.
There will be no eggs accepted.
Objections all will be rejected.
From this day forth
This court will ban
hard-boiled eggs of any brand.
And if you should not understand
The meaning of the ban at hand
Then you should contact either Dan,
the Deputy Clerk, or my clerk Jan.
I do not like eggs in the file.
I do not like them in any style.
I will not take them fried or boiled.
I will not take them poached or broiled.
I will not take them soft or scrambled
Despite an argument well-rambled.
No fan I am
Of the egg at hand.
Destroy that egg!
Today! Today!
Today I say! Without delay!

SO ORDERED (with apologies to Dr. Seuss).

James R. Muirhead
United States Magistrate Judge

Date: September 18, 2007

ladycaviar: His publisher bet him he couldn't write a book using just 50 vocabulary words.

Seuss won.

I learned that at a museum exhibit of all things Seuss in Memphis. Weird what you retain, but I have a crush on Dr. Seuss approaching that of my crush on Perry Mason*, or Michael Palin. If I were really cool, I would have remembered what the hell the name of his publisher buddy was. It's been at the tip of my brain all night. Gonna get grit all over the pillow.

*[Someone once asked me if it bothered me to have found out that Raymond Burr was gay, and did it affect my crush on Perry Mason. "No more so than the fact that he's DEAD," I said.]

Danny Kaye...

And Graham Chapman for that matter.

(how can a little girl have so many crushes?)
