** I agree. My opinion is that this story would have probably been better served if Sam-I-Am was offering the Green Eggs and Ham to several different people who haven't tried it before, and eventually finding one he could convince to try it, instead of continuously pestering the same person over and over.

** It's a Doctor Seuss book. [[BellisariosMaxim Don't think about it too much.]]

** Thank you Main/CaptainObvious.



*** No he's not. Green eggs and ham are not drugs.



** But it wasn't an accident that made them green!

* Wouldn't the big guy have had an easier time if he just straight-up told Sam-I-Am to his face to fuck off? At the most, he could have threatened to kill him or call the police for home invasion, stalking, and kidnapping.

** Not meaning to be a [[Main/KnightTemplar Knight Templar]], but aren't you reading somewhat disturbing meanings into a children's book? I always sort of saw it as a story with the moral that "you won't even know if you liked something- until you actually ''try'' it yourself!" Granted, Sam does carry on with this more than a real person probably would, but how else are you going to fill a book and get all those rhymes in? Again, not meaning to be overly zealous, just saying.

I just realized something...SAM-I-AM IS A FREAKING MANIAC!
* Thank you Main/CaptainObvious.
* Considering that a sane person would just find someone else to offer the dish to, I concur, unless Sam has an ''ulterior'' motive.
* He's like a drug-pusher?

* Sam is that annoying kid from school who would ''never'' [[MotorMouth stop talking]] to you!
* Sam is trying to get Sam-I'm-Not to accept the part of their food supply that was dyed green in a storage accident, so that he will be able to survive until it's safe to leave the bomb shelter.
