The duo then proceeds to recite some lines from the book. “You know what, you and I could go on the road. That’s fantastic,” he concludes.

The caption that accompanied this video reads, “I thought I knew Green Eggs and Ham better than most people, but at Kimball Elementary’s vaccination site earlier this month I finally met my match.”
