Visit him and you’ll see. And who knows, maybe he’ll even tell you what K.J. stands for.

On the surface, Green Eggs and Ham is supposedly about a picky eater who refuses to eat a dish that he would end up enjoying simply because he thought it didn’t sound appetizing. Parents hold it up to their children as an example to try new things and keep an open mind about them.

That’s not what this analysis is about, however. It is about deeper-routed, and possibly sadder truths spoken by the book. The unnamed main character announces (prior to being offered anything) his dislike of Sam I Am.

  9. Thanks for the introduction Mitch. In all fairness though I feel obligated to reveal that I once tried green eggs. Didn’t have any ham but those green eggs had some fuzz growing around the edges and just tasted, hehehe.
