Neighborhood dive Billy Goat Tavern has decided to get in on all the kinda-sorta-filibuster fun by dishing out a green eggs and ham special commemorating Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz’s recent dramatic reading of Dr. Seuss.

The politically inspired repast includes mint-colored eggs, hash browns, grilled ham and your choice of toast (white or wheat) for $4.75.

Billy Goat (500 New Jersey Ave. NW) is serving the hearty-har-har breakfast until noon Thursday.

When we strode into the Capitol Hill watering hole, the place was mostly empty, save for a few office drones nursing their late morning coffees. “Our first order!” cooed the grill cook when we placed our order for the fabled foodstuffs.

The meal was good; the generous plate featured fluffy eggs scrambled with bits of savory ham, onion-laced hash browns and a bonus piece of salty, griddle-seared swine.

One suggestion: maybe next time cap the whole thing off with a slice of creamy American (or queso fresco?) to commemorate the cheesiness of Cruz using public access television to snooker little ones into hearing his favorite bedtime book.

    You need to get out of Washington and live a real life. You are killing your country and you think it’s amusing. Unbelievably tasteless, pun intended.
