The lawyers at Dr. Seuss Enterprises have sent a letter to Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon, accusing the Bee of defamation and threatening to sue them for a post they did mocking the company’s titular Cat in the Hat book.

The subject of the ire is their article In New Dr. Seuss Book, Cat In The Hat Gives Kids Puberty Blockers While Their Mother Isn’t Home, which explains that in order to be fully woke compliant in the wake of banning their own books, Dr. Seuss and company had reworked the classic Cat in the Hat book .

Now called The Cat in the Hat (He/Him), it features that lovable feline scamp giving the bored children puberty blockers while their mother is away, having “diagnosed their malaise as gender dysphoria.”

An excerpt from the satirical book reads:

‘I have some new drugs,’
said the cat in the hat.
‘A lot of good drugs!
I’ll inject them in you.
Your mother will not mind at all if I do.

This resulted in action from the mothership, threatening to “proceed accordingly” if they do not remove the article.

Dillon explains that they will be not be taking down the post, given that it is fair use, and instead challenged his audience that whoever comes up with the best rhyme will be included in their response back to the lawyer’s takedown request.
