Random observation #9845

It is basically impossible to read “The Grinch That Stole Christmas” to a child without trying to sound like Boris Karloff, at least in pacing and intonation.

If you don’t know about this age-old controversy, it’s high time you became informed. Don’t know what I’m talking about (or do but need a good laugh), then read this.
