Its a Dr. Seuss story. Its about sneeches in breeches with bellies with stars, and how that made them different from other sneeches with breeches. One enterprising sneech built a machine that gave all sneeches stars on their bellies, so the original sneeches got their stars removed with another machine he built so they could still be different.... everyone got busy adding and removing and adding and removing their stars repeatedly they didn't notice that the guy who built the machines was sending them all to the poorhouse, and still nobody was satisfied.
