Fox in Socks
Dr. Seuss is a very big part of our lives right now. Like practically a member of the family. Our kids can't get enough. So if I can't manage to carry on an adult conversation the next time I talk to you, it is because I spend much of my time saying this:
(Read out loud for full effect)
When tweetle beetles fight,
it's called a tweetle beetle battle.
And when they battle in a puddle,
it's a tweetle beetle puddle battle.
AND when tweetle beetles battle
with paddles in a puddle,
they call it a tweetle beetle puddle paddle battle.
When beetles battle beetles in a puddle paddle battle
and the beetle battle puddle is a puddle in a bottle...
...they call this a tweetle beetle bottle puddle paddle battle muddle.
When beetles fight these battles
in a bottle with their paddles
and the bottle's on a poodle
and the poodle's eating noodles...
...they call this a muddle puddle tweetle poodle beetle noodle
bottle paddle battle.
I got tongue-tied just typing that.
