Lots of Good Fun That Is Funny

Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat is 1626 words in length and uses a total vocabulary of 236 words, Theodore Seuss Geisel's response to a 1954 Life article which criticized American school primers as intensely boring, unchallenging to readers and responsible for causing harm to children's literacy. And here it is in a snazzy Wordle word cloud, courtesy of The Journal of Cartoon Over-analyzations. They've created Wordles of four other Seuss classics as well. Check 'em out.

I can't go a night without reading Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, There's a Wocket in My Pocket, Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! or One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish as Tristan has become hooked on the good doctor. I love it. (Link via culture kills and The Afterword)
