Quote of the Week: Seuss, Red in Tooth and Claw

"Wouldn't a bird with a large, ungainly tail be dragged down and immobilized, like Dr. Seuss's bird Gertrude McFuzz, and eaten? (If I were Dr. Seuss, that's how I would have ended it, which is why it's a good thing I'm not Dr. Seuss. Also: Sylvester McMonkey McBean would have given the Sneetches guns.)"
- Peter Sagal, The Book of Vice, p. 164

LOL...applying logic to Dr. Seuss's works I think goes against every grain by which Dr. Seuss measured his success. Logic does not belong in these things.
