A couple of weeks ago, my husband made the observation that Dr. Seuss’s “Fox in Socks” is the literary equivalent of Eminem’s performance in 8-mile’s final rap-battle.
Of course, this got me thinking.
My first thought?
My husband has bad brains.
My second thought?
I’d love to see a Dr. Seuss v Eminem match up.
My money’s on Seuss. Don’t kid yourself that just because the man wrote children’s rhymes for a living that he wasn’t a scrapper.
“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!” — Dr. Seuss
So, cast your vote! Who do you think would walk away the victor? The intrepid and nonsensical Seuss or the pugnacious Eminiem?
Got anyone else you’d love to see battle it out? Real or Fictional, who would you put in a ring, given the chance?
