The Sexual Innuendo You Never Noticed in Dr. Seuss


It’s Dr. Seuss’ birthday today! If he were still alive, he would be 108 today. No children’s author is quite as beloved as Dr. Seuss, and for good reason. His books are funny, clever, sweet, and easy to read. I grew up with Dr. Seuss stories, and I can still recite long sections of some of them. But just like Disney movies, the older you get, the more things you pick up on that you never noticed as a kid. Like that all of his characters look strangely phallic?  And it turns out there are a few scandalous lines in our most beloved Dr. Seuss books. Here’s the sexual innuendo in Dr. Seuss that you never noticed… until today.
