i love this shit. cruz is stepping right in with the other nuts in that wing of the party, completely missing the point of a children's story. hey ted: at the end of the book, once he actually tries it instead of just having a knee-jerk reaction, he likes green eggs and ham. and he will eat them in a box, with a fox, in a house, with a mouse. that's the whole point, you total moron...
while I agree with your general view point, he's actually saying americans did try it, in a box, with a fox, in a house, with a mouse and they still didn't like it. so his example isn't false, but the premise that americans didn't like it probably is

then why use green eggs and ham? he's driving his point home with something that means the exact opposite of what he wants.

Some ghastly shit between that death lake and those huge killer hornets. I clicked the link for the picture of the queen hornets in the article, thinking it couldn't possibly be as bad as they made it seem, and my stomach turned inside out. I'd rather face a horde of zombies, or a sharknado for that matter. Unreal.
