"There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island." - Walt Disney

Dr. Seuss is famous for his "X"
creations. His ability to appeal to a xenophile (one attracted to foreign
things) and his lessons for those with Xenophobia (fear or maybe even
hatred of strangers or of anything that is foreign to them) are apparent in all
of his creations. However, one of my favorite examples comes from If I
Ran The Zoo:
And when I've caught him,
Then the next thing you know
I'll go and I'll capture
A wild Tick-Tack-Toe, With X's that win And with Zeros that lose. He'll look mighty good In this Zoo of McGrew's.
