The Cat in the Hat married Tony the Tiger’s sister, whose name is Delilah the Tiger, in one extravagantly extravagant wedding. It started with Daisy Head Mayzie, the flower girl, inching up the aisle while The Cat in the Hat with his very best hat and fur tux stood waiting for Delilah’s entrance. And of course that time came with her father, Larry the Tiger walking her up the aisle arm in arm and paw in paw. The walk was slow with a skip-i-de-bump of a trot. The minister was a frail old thing. For he looked as shallow as his eyes did sing. His name was left out for simple reasons this author could not quite cope. So he joined these two with simple solemn words and asked for the rings. Thing 1 and Thing 2 each carried one, but what an entrance theirs was. For they came running through the doors at a speed which seemed uncanny, yet the grace of it all as the rings sat one each upon a velvet pillow. One purple and one green. And as they approached the alter, as everyone (a crowd of hundreds) could see and smell, there footprints melted into the rug and the stench was that of which could only be described as Thing 1 and Thing 2. But alas, nevertheless, and so on. The rings were exchanged and the couple were announced ‘husband and wife.’ But at that moment The Cat in the Hat’s alarm clock rang with fury from beneath his hat. It was time to go, so he told. And the two ran off, as catnip was thrown, to catch a flight to the strange dimension or other world were Thing 1 and Thing 2 came. Meanwhile everyone laughed and enjoyed the aristocratic arts of Thing 1 and Thing 2. And with the excitement that started it all, so it did and did, it did, come to an end. But alas, as I know you do not know-there is nothing more to tell, for Thing 1 and Thing 2 end the festivities.
