OK… I’m getting a little obsessed here.
There was a big book of jokes that was illustrated by Dr. Seuss. I checked this book out of the library and read it many, many times, around when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade. It was an old copy then (or, at least, a well abused one), which was probably around 1978-1979.
But I can not find this book at all on the all-knowing internet.
It’s good to have a pointless mission every now and again.
