Green Eggs and Ham

In the book Green Eggs and Ham, Sam-I-Am tries to force Joey to eat the strange-looking dish mentioned in the title, but Joey refuses and tries to get away by saying, "I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam-I-Am." Joey continues to repeat that as Sam-I-am persistently follows him. At the end, Joey finally gives in and agrees to try Green Eggs and Ham. After sampling the dish, he realizes that it's quite tasty and thanks Sam-I-Am for letting him try it, and he learned his lesson: it is important to try something new, whether it's food or anything else, even if it doesn't seem appealing at first.
