50 Words

Apparently the inspired nonsense of Green Eggs And Ham was the result of a bet - that Dr Seuss couldn't write a book using only 50 words. No information on what the bet was, and whether he collected...

The words, in order of appearance, are: I am Sam; that; do not like; you green eggs and ham; them; would here or there; anywhere; in a house with mouse; eat box fox; car they; could; may will see tree; let me be; train on; say the dark; rain; goat; boat; so try may; if; good; thank.
