Dr. Seuss Quote of the Day
”Nonsense wakes up the brain cells. And it helps develop a sense of humor, which is awfully important in this day and age. Humor has a tremendous place in this sordid world. It's more than just a matter of laughing. If you can see things out of whack, then you can see how things can be in whack.”
Frankenstein’s Monster himself, Boris Karloff, provided the voice of the Grinch, in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and the narration for the movie. Seuss thought his voice might be too scary for kids and all of the high tones in Karloff’s voice were removed in post production. That’s why the Grinch sounds so gravelly.
Also, Thurl Ravenscroft, (the voice behind Tony the Tiger in the old Frosted Flakes commercials) is the voice behind “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” song, although he received no credit on the film.

With two days left of the Seuss Week, I bring you my little version of the Tweedle Beetle Bottle Battle Bug. There is still time on the contest. There have been a lot of correct answers given by many people, but there are still some with incorrect (albeit very good) guesses as well. I encourage those to give it another shot.
