Basil on the Grinch

And in this version he leaves the last can of Who-Hash and starts the Adopt-A-Who program...

The true Grinch program (with Boris Karlof, of course) is the best of the Christmas programs...My all time favorite...Except for the fact that it has a sad ending...I had a lot more respect for him when he was stealing all the roast beast and scamming Cindy-Lou Who. I'll never forgive Dr. Seuss for ruining the story...(Recite in best Boris Karlof voice)
Three thousand feet up! Up the side of Mount Crumpit,
He rode to the tiptop to dump it!
"Pooh-pooh to the Whos!" he was grinch-ish-ly humming.
"They're finding out now that no Christmas is coming!
"They're just waking up! I know just what they'll do!
"Their mouths will hang open a minute or two
"Then all the Whos down in Who-ville will all cry BOO-HOO!"

Gotta like the old Grinch...Up until the point he wimps out...Grinch-ish-ly humming forsooth!
