Inmate Mails Egg, Judge Mimics Dr. Seuss
As the Associated Press reported, an inmate of a federal prison in New Hampshire was unhappy with the diet, so he sent a complaint - and a boiled egg - to a judge. U.S. District Court Judge James Muirhead answered as follows:
I do not like eggs in the file. I do not like them in any style. I will not take them fried or boiled. I will not take them poached or broiled. I will not take them soft or scrambled/Despite an argument well-rambled. No fan I am/Of the egg at hand. Destroy that egg! Today! Today! Today I say! Without delay!
I'd be interested in seeing the bookshelf in the judge's chambers.
