AteMyBrain: Re-affirms for me that "hilarious" is a highly subjective concept.
ristst: I dunno....despite the use of whimsical nonsense words, The Lorax remains a truly brilliant piece of work with a timeless message.
Here is a poor picture of the hat exhibit. It's pretty cool and has some hats in it I would have expected. (concentration camp and nazi hats).
Nana's Vibrator: Dr. Seuss was a f*cking lie. He made up words for rhyme and meter to complete his phrases. Then he doubled down on his lies by concocting ridiculous pictures to represent those words. I went downtown to meet friends at the circleand all day we played games like jarry and blurcle(insert stupid depiction of made up words)And when he was stuck and couldn't make up a word, he'd just repeat a word ad nauseum. Oh the lies lies lies lies If there's one thing I can't stand it's the lies lies lies lies.(insert picture of a talking fish. Because fish are known liars. Like Dr. Seuss)So I suppose my point is that his nonsense would have fit in perfectly on the politics tab.
Nana's Vibrator: peacheslatour:Same with Oh The Places You'll GoYou'd love my family. I got 3 copies of that piece of crap when I graduated high school and 2 more after undergrad.
Li'l Robbie: I thought the nonsense words were part of Dr. Seuss' appeal. Who couldn't love words like"flumple", "flurb", "shroonk", and - one that was used on TV, but not in a book - "moss-covered,three-handled family gradunza"?
