Dr. Seuss, Armitage Style.

In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday this week,
we bring you a Nat in the Hat special...

One Rich,
two Rich,
red Rich,
 blue Rich.
Black Rich,
blue Rich,
 old Rich,
 new Rich.

This one has a little star.
This one has a little car.
Say, what a lot of Richards there are!

Some are sad,
and some are glad,
and some are very, very bad.
Why are they sad and glad and bad?
I do not know, go ask your dad!

Some are thin
and none are fat

This one has a funny hat!

Here are some who like to run.
They run for fun in the hot, hot sun.
Why do they run around each other?
I do not know, go ask your mother!

Now you have had a little look
at the Armitage version of a Dr. Seuss book!


Twinkling Moon said...

LOL! You are too darn funny! How an earth do you come up with this stuff? Nat, I hope you are using your creative talents to get paid, cuz honey, you have too much talent not to get compensated!

And just love the look of "new Rich," :)

Dito what Twinkling Moon said!

That cracked me up! My kids will sooo love this too. My oldest asked if he could watch some Gizzy on the iPod. I have a collection of fanvids..

Charleybrown said...

Now where are my green eggs and ham?! delivered up by Mr. Armitage of course!

Phylly3 said...

Ab-so-bloomin' marvelous! Had a great laugh! Thanks for Seussing up my day!

mulubinba said...

Love it, Nat! Thanks.

Starheart said...

OMG I didn't realise he did so much running around!! Nor that Seussing could be applied to Monet!! :)


@Rob said...

so, so , so clever! really truly. not sure how u were going to top SFR Paper Doll, but u did!!! Love it!!!

Sue said...

I love the top black and white pic best. It's the Heathcliffe look and hopefully one day he will realise my personal dream and play that role in Wuthering Heights which was written just for him!

As for him going grey. Never, never, never. It ages you terribly, keep dying it Richard.

As for the poll on the right and "what hair colour would look best on Richard". I was going to click on "mine" but Nat that option wasn't included you naughty girl. (Or is that my description?)

Regina said...

That was wonderful and oh so funny!

bZirk said...

ROFLOL!!! Nataleeee! ROFLOL!!!

You are something else. :D

MaryKwizMiz said...

just one word that comes to mind
you're cracking me up at 2.13am :D

B* said...

So funny, Nat! My kids love Dr. Seuss... I wonder what they would think of this version? :)

flandersdreamer said...

Absolutely fantastic! What a talent! Thanks, Nat!

Myrtle said...

Fab! soooo funny

Why do I always want to linger over the photo of rugby playing Iain??? Why is that???

Traxy said...

Ahh that made me giggle. I totally agree with Twinkling Moon - Nat, you are awesome! :D

DEZMOND said...

that RED RICH pic is probably his best I've ever seen here at your blog. Truly elegant and refined.

bZirk said...

Interesting DEZMOND. That is actually one of my least favorite pictures of him. But I love how we see things so differently. It would be so boring if we were in lock step.


Nat, regarding the hair color poll, how about the answer "don't care" or "either black or brown?" Just a thought.

Manda said...

I love this blog so much I can't even put it into words.

bZirk said...

Breathing nitrous oxide, and I like to get my fix as often as I can.

That's how I think of it.

Nat at RA FanBlog said...

I happen to like RA's preppy red sweater look! :) I guess Dezmond and I are in the minority.

Trudy said...

Can I have that in print? Hee-hee.
I'd much rather read this version than the original! Something about the pics...

bZirk said...


I like his red sweater look too, so it's still a favorite -- just my least favorite. :D

Maybe you can do a PDF file of your story?
