Remember the refrain from Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Suess?  “Would you? Could you?…In the rain? With a goat? In a car? Eat them! Eat them! Here they are.” Sam-I-Am tries to convince an annoyed Cat-In-The-Hat to eat green eggs and ham by combining the entrée with an absurdity of settings and characters. “In a house? With a mouse?”
