Written by Joe Janes

33 of 365

CAST:
Ed Norton
Brad Pitt
Helena Bonham Carter

(Lights up on Ed Norton wearing a disheveled suit and tie. He sits in a chair center stage and has a black eye. Stage left is a flamboyantly dressed Brad Pitt and a punky looking Helena Bonham Carter making out. Ed Norton holds a handgun. On the end of the gun is a small pink puff.)

ED NORTON
The first rule of Seuss Club is - you do not talk about Whoville. The second rule of Seuss Club is - you DO NOT talk about Whoville.

(He sticks the puffy pink end of the gun in his mouth. Lights fade. If there is a video screen, the following graphic should appear, very simply, white lettering on black background, “Ed Norton Hears a Who” then underneath “coming this summer”. If there is no video screen, revealing a title card is fine. This should be silent. THERE SHOULD BE NO VOICE-OVER.)

I must know more. I need the whole story, prequel and sequel as well.

You destroy innocence well. You should try more things with kid books. How about the man with 1001 hats? I could have the number wrong. It could be 300.

But, what if the voice-over went something like . . .

In a world where eggs are green and cats wear hats,

?

That's pretty funny. Probably for another Suess-related blackout.
