The greatest children’s book ever written. It still sends shivers down my spine every time I finish it. It tells the story of how big buisness will destroy the world (in an environmental sense). The lorax himself is a character in the story. Describe him? That’s hard. I don’t know if I can. He is smallish, and oldish, and brownish, and mossy. He speaks with a voice that is sharpish and bossy. He is the protector of nature and is the foil to the Onceler’s (the narrator) callous buisness attitude, which looks at things one dimensionally, with buisness his only concern. His buisness grows inversely with the quality of nature, which eventually drives out all the native species. Eventually his buisness, which relies on nature (which the Onceler doesn’t realize) completely shuts down as his resources are eliminated. This bitter irony conveys how selfishness leads to nothing.
“I am the Lorax, I speak for the trees.
I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues”
Based off the the Dr. Suess character that ‘speaks for the trees.’
A lorax is also a term that can be used to describe an ambassador or pretty much anyone who decides they’re going to speak on the behalf of others as if they know what everyone is thinking.
“What do you mean ‘we?’ You’re not our Lorax!”
The sex act of nailing a short fat hairy bitch with your truffula tree and then falling asleep.
Hey Dude, Did you really fuck Snooky?
Yeah, I gave her the old Lorax.
How was it?
Pretty awful, but thank god I’m the Once-ler and passed out aftewards.
Thats hardcore man, hardcore.
The small creature that pops out of the first Truffula tree cut down. He’s for conservation and claims to ‘speak for the trees’. Is believed to be on halucenigenic drugs.
“I speak for the trees, for the trees have no mouths…”
A character from the Dr. Suess book of the same name. The Lorax speaks for the trees.
Me: Lorax….lower axe!
Random guy with axe: What was that?
Me: the Lorax speaks for the trees!
Random guy with axe: Huh?
Me: don’t you get it? Lower your axe aka…Lorax….lower axe….Lorax!
First appeared in Dr. Seuss’ book, The Lorax. Used to replace “Oh my God” which could be offensive. “Oh my Lorax” just sounds funny and works!
Oh my Lorax, I forgot my huge science paper!
