Overheard on Friday:


Woman#1: (Defeated sounding) I have to take my son to see The Lorax

Cheerful Female Friend: Ohhh, you can’t go wrong with Dr. Seuss!”  



Cheerful Female Friend has clearly not registered the atrocities Hollywood has often made from the good doctor’s work. And when one thinks of the colorful wit and profound whimsy of Dr. Seuss surely mainstream heartthrobs like Zac Efron and Taylor Swift pop immediately to mind! What a, uhhhh, perfect vocal match.

But Cheerful Female Friend speaks for all of America. So testifies the box office!
