MOM: Okay, we need to find out where the Dr. Seuss books are.
KID: But mooOOOoommm, I don't want a Dr. Seuss book!
Mom: Well, that's just TOO BAD, because YOU DON'T HAVE A CHOICE!
My friend and I laughed until we almost cried. The mom really sounded like this was a life or death matter, and a Dr. Seuss book was critical somehow.
I'm sort of hoping I missed something, though, like the kid failed the Hooked on Phonics course and was doing independent study or something...
