'''Shel Silverstein''' (1930-1999) was best known as an author of offbeat children's poetry. He also wrote picture books, songs, song lyrics (most famously "[[Music/JohnnyCash A Boy Named Sue]]", "[[Music/TheIrishRovers The Unicorn]]" and "The Cover of Rolling Stone"), one-act plays and films. Fans of his mainstream work may be rather [[BleachedUnderpants stunned to hear]] that many of his songs are ''very'' adult in tone, and that he personally was a real-life ChickMagnet who lived for several years in the actual [[Magazine/{{Playboy}} Playboy Mansion]]. He died from a heart attack in May 1999 and was buried in a Chicago cemetery.

* MultipleEndings: The poem "Hippo's Hope" concerns a hippopotamus who attempts to fly off a mountain and has three different endings: Happy (the hippo succeeds and soars off into the clouds); Unhappy (the hippo fails and plummets down the mountain breaking all his bones); and Chicken (the hippo turns around and goes home to have cookies and tea).

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: In the poem, "Smart", a father gives his "smartest" son a dollar bill, and the boy trades it with someone for two quarters (because two is more than one), then he trades those for three dimes, then four nickels, and finally, five pennies. He then shows his dad who turns red, closes his eyes and shakes his head, and the boy concludes [[ComicallyMissingThePoint that his dad is very proud of him.]]
