Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss Edition

Today would have been the 112th birthday of Theodor Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss. Like most people, I grew up loving his books though it wasn’t until I started babysitting that I appreciated the power that a Dr. Seuss book really had. Read a few lines from The Cat in the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham and you most likely had a quiet kid for the remainder of the book. That is also when I appreciated the lingual dexterity that reading a Dr. Seuss book aloud requires. Some of those rhymes are real tongue twisters. So in honor of his birthday, we’ll kick off this week’s pop culture roundup with a little poem that rips off pays homage to the late, great Dr. Seuss:

When you have a busy life
Keeping up with pop culture can cause strife
Pop culture for me isn’t a slog
I’ll find it and put in in my blog
I’ll find pop culture here and there
This post has pop culture from everywhere
So read this and get caught all caught up
Enjoy this week’s pop culture roundup
