What a rooty-tooty bunch of hooey. IHOP is using the eco-friendly message ofÂ The LoraxÂ to lure families in for Dr. Seussâ€“themed meals that are chock-full ofÂ factory-farmedÂ meat, eggs, and dairy products. The restaurant couldn't serve anything less environmentally friendly than if it put centuries-old Amazon trees on a plate.
