my favourite dr. seuss excerpt

from the all-time greatest seuss book, fox in socks:

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...

(and so on. and so forth)
