How
the
Grinch
Stole
Christmas 2008
Edition

Every
Who
down
in
Who-ville
liked
Christmas
a
lot, but
the
Grinch,
who
lived
just
North
of
Who-ville,
did
not! His
previous
schemes
had
done
no
good
at
all. Christmas
came
with
no
trumpet
or
bangle
or
ball, Or
freezle
or
frumpet
or
diddle-de-deest! What
was
worse,
they
had
won
-
he
had
carved
their
roast
beast! He
needed
to
do
more
than
take
all
their
toys To
silence
all
Who-ville’s
young
girls
and
young
boys. So
he
puzzled
and
puzzled.

Oh,
how
his
mind
ran! And
finally,
that
mean
old
Grinch
hatched
a
plan!


“Subprime
mortgages!”
said
the
Grinch
with
a
shout. “Once
they’ve
bought
into
those,
then
they’ll
never
get
out! Unaccountable
ratings
and
credit-default
swaps Make
it
easy
to
do
and
steer
clear
of
the
cops!” So
he
turned
to
his
dog
and
said
“Hey,
Max!
Hey
there! You’d
better
get
typing!
Not
a
moment
to
spare!” So
with
Max
at
his
desk
working
morning
to
night, Worthless
paper
piled
up
to
a
staggering
height And
the
Whos
down
in
Who-ville,
they
bought
it
in
tons! They
ascended
Mount
Crumpet
in
tens,
threes,
and
ones And
they
used
the
Grinch
credit
to
build
new
Who
homes, Who
McMansions
with
pools
and
brand
new
velodromes.

Then
the
Grinch
just
sat
back
with
a
big
Grinchy
smile. Two
Christmases
passed.

Three.

Four.

Five.

All
the
while, He
was
patiently
waiting.

Then,
suddenly,
SPLAT! Who-ville’s
financial
sector
implodes
-
just
like
that! The
Whos
down
in
Who-ville,
the
tall
and
the
small, Haven’t
any
idea
what
hit
them
at
all. But
they
can’t
afford
freezles,
no,
not
in
the
least, and
certainly
not
a
new
diddle-de-deest. On
the
morning
of
Christmas
the
Grinch
cocks
his
ear, Wondering
what
wails
of
despair
he
might
hear.


To
his
horror,
he
hears
their
Who-voices
in
song! Something
is
horribly,
horribly
wrong. As
he
listens,
their
words
become
terribly
clear. He
plugs
up
his
ears,
but
still
he
can
hear The
whole
town
of
Who-ville,
all
bursting
in
song, Proves
to
the
Grinch
that
his
plans
have
gone
wrong. At
the
end,
all
the
Whos
sing
out
just
for
the
Grinch in
a
tone
of
pure
kindness
that
makes
his
heart
flinch. “Mr.
Grinch,
you’re
a
very
slow
learner,”
they
call. “Merry
Christmas
to
you,
and
to
Max,
and
to
all!”
