When I was young, I used to think this guy was just plain stupid!
I mean, he gets all these toys and rather than make himself some dough
He grows a heart and gives them back to the kids
I mean how lame!
But then a friend told me a story years back
About the richest man in the world
He's old, crippled and weathered
He spends his days counting all his gold
Coin for coin, daily, to make sure they are all there
He spends his day polishing them, inspecting them
My friend explains, the old man is the richest man in the world
Because he's the last living person
And so he's got all the money in the world
But nothing to spend it on
So he fills his days counting them and polishing them
And I suddenly realized that the Grinch had an angle
Return the toys, makes some friends, win some hearts
At no cost to himself, he was, I mean returning back what wasn't his
And at the end of day, he gets a free meal, the joy of good company
And even some gifts for himself
And at no cost to himself...my what an angle.
So here's to the Grinch, smartest green bastard I ever read of!
