Dr. Seuss’ Birthday and Condoms

by Lucky Red Hen on March 3, 2011

A Google search for "seuss birthday" led me to this page with an interesting banner ad.

What does Dr. Seuss’s birthday (which is today, March 2) have to do with condoms? I don’t know. That’s why I’ve come to you, my faithful 3 blog readers, to find out.

Maybe practicing safe secks and The Cat in The Hat (ba dump bump tsh) have something in common. But I think his other stuff shows he definitely digs abstinence (yay!)…

Would you? Could you? In a car?
I would not, could not, in a car.
A train! A train! A train! A train!
Could you, would you, on a train?
I would not, could not, in a box.
I would not, could not, with a fox.
Say! In the dark? Here in the dark!
Would you, could you, in the dark?
I would not, could not, in the dark.
Would you, could you, in the rain?
Would you, could you, with a goat?
I would not, could not with a goat!
(thank goodness, I say)
Would you, could you, on a boat?
I could not, would not, on a boat.
Not in the dark! Not in a tree!
Not in a car! You let me be!

And if Horton Hatches the Egg isn’t a love story about foster care and adoption, then I don’t know what my natural hair color is (I do, so there).

Happy Dr. Seuss’ birthday! We celebrated Justin Bieber’s birthday (yesterday, March 1) yesterday by frosting cupcakes with purple (his favorite color) frosting. It’s 5 o’clock (somewhere) and I wonder what we’

P.S. I dig abstinence and not using abortion as birth control. So there.

Well, when you (meaning I) have a boy who idolizes JB, you (meaning I) might have to go along with JB festivities ;)

Ha! I love it. Liv celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday today at school. She kept asking me what we were going to do at home. They had brainwashed her somehow to think that this was an actual holiday. Maybe we should inflate some condoms and throw them around the house?

I already linked to yesterday’s post so if I link to this one too, would it just be weird. This is some really good stuff. So freakin hilarious. I wish you still lived in Utah so when I move back next month we could hang out. Would you could you on the kitchen table?

If anyone could find a word that rhymes with condom, it would be Dr. Seuss. And if he couldn’t find one, he would make one up.
