Green Eggs And Ham (And A Great Rhyme, Sam)
A New Hampshire federal judge was driven to rhyme after receiving a hard-boiled egg in the mail from a prison inmate protesting against his diet. District Court Judge James Muirhead reached for Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham" for inspiration after getting the egg from inmate Charles Jay Wolff. "I do not like eggs in the file," Muirhead wrote. "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." He then ordered the egg destroyed: "No fan I am/Of the egg at hand. Destroy that egg! Today! Today! Today I say! Without delay!"
FOOTNOTE: I could rhyme, if I had the time.
