Try Them And You May, I Say

H., my first cousin once removed (it took us 20 minutes and Wikipedia to figure that out), wanted to make movies over the Thanksgiving holiday. This seemed like a perfect opportunity to document my only skill: the speed reading of Green Eggs & Ham.

Get the Flash Player to see this video.

That’s Squiggle next to me. The toddler is yet another relation, one who decided to spend the day wearing her new pink bicycle helmet.

H. is behind the camera, but makes a guest appearance as Enormous Nose Mothership. And yes, the video is flipped for some reason. Talk to the director.


  1. <supposed to be good for figuring out weird family connections like that

    that enormous nose was terrifying. we need to warn people!

  2. Was this video reversed? Is that why you’re turning the pages backwards? Or were you reading it in China?

  3. Don’t tell anyone, but I watched the whole thing mostly to hear the end of the story. It’s been a while since I’ve read that.

  4. Even more fun to read aloud and rapidly is Fox in Sox. You really have to mind your chicks with bricks, though, to avoid naming something you’d prefer that the children not repeat.
