Things You Didn’t Know About Dr. Seuss

In honor of today being Dr. Seuss Day, here are The Top Things You Didn’t Know About Dr. Seuss.

  • He’s not a real doctor. Sorry. That’s a thing you didn’t know about Dr. Phil.
  • Thanks to IHOP, he once actually tried green eggs and ham.
  • Despite creating so many brightly colored, outlandish characters, he had nothing to do with Donald Trump.
  • The reason “The Who’s” weren’t affected after the Grinch stole their Christmas stuff was because they still controlled a lucrative heroin trade.
  • Until his death in 1991, he carried the scars from a 1962 back-alley knife fight with Charles Schulz.
  • He won an Oscar in 1951. Oh, never mind. It goes to “Moonlight”.
  • He wrote “Green Eggs and Ham” to win a bet that he could write a book using exactly 50 words. Which is also true of the author of “Fifty Shades of Grey”.
  • He created “The Lorax” after seeing Danny DeVito in an off-Broadway play.
  • He’s the author of 90% of the books in the George W. Bush Presidential Library.
  • It was really annoying getting sushi with him because he’d always order one fish, two fish, red fish, and blue fish.
  • His family is glad he died in 1991, because it means that he didn’t have to see Mike Myers in “The Cat in the Hat” movie.
