The McGrinch Who Tried to Steal Christmas

I wanted to give all you dear Raisinettes a present for Christmas.  For the past 2 years, we’ve been singing the Grincheney Song, but this year, I thought there should be a new Grinch.  In fact, a McGrinch.

To the tune of You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch, by Dr. Seuss, performed by Thurl Ravenscroft:

By the way, this part:

Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing
with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable
rubbish imaginable,
Mangled up in tangled up knots.

….is exactly as Dr. Seuss wrote it. I didn’t have to change a word!

Here are the words, just in case they’re hard to read in the graphics:

You’re a mean one, John McGrinch,
You really are a heel,
Like an Arizona cactus,
Prickly’s how you make us feel,
John McGrinch,
You’re a bad banana with not a drop of appeal!

You’re a monster, John McGrinch,
We all wish you’d just go,
All your hatred of Obama,
Is enough to scare your mama,
John McGrinch,
And yet you’re invited to be a guest on every Sunday talk show!

You re a vile one, John McGrinch
With your angry wicked smile
You show all you inner evil with your words and with your bile,
John McGrinch,
Given the choice between you and an asp,
I’d take the serpent from the Nile!

No one likes you, John McGrinch,
You’re a bitter used-up schmo,
You have no friends left but Lindseypoo,
And maybe Trader Joe,
John McGrinch,
The 3 words that really save you are as follows (and I quote):

You’re just rotten, John McGrinch,
You’re as welcome as blood clots
The hell with first responders,
But rich people must have yachts,
John McGrinch,
Your soul is an appalling dump heap,
Overflowing with the most disgraceful
Assortment of deplorable rubbish imaginable,
Mangled up in tangled up knots!

Your choices, John McGrinch,
Were so bad that our toes curled,
Sarah Palin, Joe the Plumber,
Dumb and Dumber’s been unfurled,
John McGrinch,
A big fat double-decker stupid sandwich,
You unleashed on the world!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my diary and inviting both Inspired and me. We had a great time singing along with the McGrinch song.

    In return, I present some of my favorite Christmas videos from this season.

    Fabulous song, Nonnie! I sang it twice!
    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and let’s meet in the New Year!

  6. i almost forgot the snow!! 😀 if it interferes with anyone’s computer, let me know, and i’ll turn it off.

    p.s. no “writing your name in the snow”, guys!

  7. I guess old Johnny blew a gasket over the DADT vote. Even his cronies found him sooo out there, they did not walk lockstep with him.
    Let’s face it McGrinch is past his pull date. He either needs to retire or Arizona needs to wake up & vote him & Kyl outta there.

    Great Graphics here Nonnie! So festive & you got the color just right for the Grinch face!
    Wassail to you & yours!

    • i bet there are a lot of rethugs who would love to scream on every news program that capt underpants is nuts, and they don’t want to be associated with him.

      happy holidays, fran! 🙂

  8. Happy Holidays? That was what I was going to say. I’m glad you clued us in on the snow as I thought something was wrong with this little notepad. Your adaptation will help the Grinch song become immortalized. Speaking of such, every Christmas reminds me of the story of the youth of Europe trapped in their holes and trenches some 86 years ago now. It wasn’t supposed to be that way. The leaders and kings and various loudmouth ministers had proclaimed it would be a quick affair, mobilize and get the armies out the quickly because it will all be over by Christmas! But it wasn’t The quest for glory and medals turned into a charnel house instead. Hunkered down in the cold and the mud that fatefull December 24th, the oddest thing happened. The Tommies heard singing, softly at first coming across from no mans land. The Germans were singing their traditional Yule song Silent Night in the original language, of course. Then some of the Brits started joining in. After a while, an awareness raised the intensity to a high level and the most unbelievable thing happened: The insanity stopped! Men left their trenches and greeted the ones from the other side. The joy of the season was proclaimed. Food and drink were offered and shared in a feeling of celebration, a release from the hellish insanity from HQ and the General Staff. They say some even got soccer games going, everyone ecstatic with the unexpected gift of goodwill toward men. It lasted a day untill the madness returned, almost 4 more years in the sausage machine to fight to an non decisive end highlighted by a massive world plague, the worst depression in history, and a chance to do the same thing all over again to a factor of five. When will they ever learn, when will they EVER learn!

    • thank you, jerry! i hope your holiday in your new digs was wonderful.

      i held off on turning on the snow until now, because i know it makes my computer go a little bit wacky at the bottom of my screen, and i didn’t want to aggravate anyone.

      i heard that story a long time ago, but i had forgotten about it. thanks so much for reminding me of it. so sad that we still haven’t learned our lesson, and there’s always a war going on somewhere. all war does is kill people and make rich people richer.
