How the Grinch Stole Christmas

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) – Podcast 0143

How the Grinch Stole Christmas. *The one with Jim Carrey*

In a magical world that exists on a snowflake…Cindy Lou Who is an antagonist! WHO knew? We’ll see ourselves out…

This week, Darth and Jason welcome brand new (and unsuspecting) guest, Alli, to discuss How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Hindsighters, this episode forces Darth and Jason to ask … WHY HE GOTTA BE A GREEN GRINCH?!? The Whos might be impervious to gravity and concrete, but greenism still hurts.

Your favorite podcasters may never be able to solve the mystery of unsolicited racism in a children’s Christmas movie, but they cannot rest until they determine whether yak hair costumes merit torture training. Can someone get Sarah Jessica Parker on the phone? She would know.

#Hindsighters, you’ve got to love it when a 30 minute Christmas classic transforms into a 2 hour feature film with jokes about key parties and cuckolding. Sometimes, Hindsight ruins a childhood. Regardless, if you’re Jason’s neighbor, you’re certainly a sex offender, but only on Halloween.

Darth and Jason would love to distract you from this ugly Halloween truth with some lessons from life and this super “wholesome” movie:

  1. Star Wars is all about perspective and carefully accepted delusion.
  2. The Grinch would have LOVED Hans Gruber.
  3. Cancelling plans that you made with yourself is unacceptable.

The real lesson is that we all grew up to be the Grinch. The good news is that none of us grew up to be Mike Myers in Cat in the Hat … except for Darth and Jason’s trolls. Your most hated podcasters will pray for you.
