Slaunchcast Episode 2.0: Dr. Seuss

As you can see from the image pictured at left, iTunes has apparently suggested that the works of Dr. Seuss can be abridged.

This Slaunchways podcast was created to examine if "Seuss abridgment" is actually possible.

The results? Shocking.

Some reading that might enhance your enjoyment of this podcast:

Episode 2.0: Dr. Seuss, abridged?!
Runtime is about 13:30. If you can't see the nifty flash player above this sentence, then get the MP3 here.

UPDATE: The "Brand Name It" contest contained within the podcast was solved at 9:09 am by Nate Dawg. Congrats!

His Seuss selection:

Well, after giving it loads of thought (pretty much my entire afternoon was spent making this decision), I think that Dr. Seuss's masterpiece "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" would make a fine addition to my hefty collection of audio children's literature. The basis for this decision was threefold:
  • O.F.T.F.R.F.B.F. (the abbr. version) has been described as "a book with a freewheeling plot about a boy and a girl, and the many amazing creatures they have for friends and pets." (Wikipedia)
  • I feel that I can connect with Ned, one of the main characters, who, because of his elongated nature, finds himself in an uncomfortable position while attempting to sleep. He is also both physically and emotionally distraught with the comings and goings of various mammals, like I am, with all of the drunkards living around me.
  • I've always wanted a seven hump Wump...
So there you go.

Sorry Snauzzy. You're incorrect. And honestly, to say I'm baffled by your response would be an understatement. Maybe the obnoxious ALL CAPS was a hint or something.

Come on CJ you know you don't meet one big criteria for joining a convent and becoming a Nun. You aren't Catholic other then that you would be good to go, geese I could have really helped you from using valuable brain energy in making that decision.
