Comment Of The Day: Last Word On The Grinch

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

As part of our build-up to the popular December holiday of "Christmas," our Sean Pendergast offered some perplexing questions about the television specials this Druid celebration has spawned.

One reader offered some insight into the ritual surrounding what cultists calle "The Grinch."

Jared had this to say:

Question #2 re the Grinch: I know Cindy Lou Who was no more than two, but how the fuck do you mistake a skinny, green-goblin-looking gremlin with no white beard and a scratchy voice for Santy Claus? Dumbest kid ever.

Still my favorite of the X-Mas specials, though. And on the bright side for Max, he did get a nice thick tasty piece of Roast Beast in the very end.
