“You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch”

You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch, Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas & Horton Hears A Who!

I normally wouldn’t do this one, but my wife looked me in the eye this morning and said “The Grinch is clearly supposed to be analogous to Grendel; therefore, How the Grinch Stole Christmas can be seen as a symbolic representation of the final conquest and conversion of pagan belief structures by Christianity.”

So, yeah, after that I pretty much had to put this up.

    Your wife has an interesting mind. It would therefore also be the representative of the triumph of science over superstition and un-reason. Your wife seems to think in terms of symbols odd for engineer.

    But after some thought on the matter maybe not.

    I don’t have anything cool to say about symbolic representations of pagan belief structures. I always thought the coolest thing about this was it had Tony the Tiger on vocals.

    And here I thought his heart was three sizes too small…
    Just Dave: Yeah, the marvelous Thurl Ravenscroft. He had a cool name, too…

    I’d like to meet your wife some day. Just so I can say I did.
    Merry Christmas Moe, and have a Happy New Year!

    Your wife should post on her blog more often, by the way.
