Grinch accuses May of stealing his plan to cancel Christmas

John Shafthauer

Theresa May is threatening to cancel Christmas if her deal isn’t voted through parliament:

Parliament isn’t likely to agree to May’s Brexit plan, because it isn’t the Christmas cracker they want – more of an undercooked turkey. Despite that, May’s plan to ruin the holiday is already taking a stuffing. Largely because the Grinch has issued a cease and desist letter.

Not very merry

The Grinch has been plotting to ruin Christmas for several decades. He’s never actually managed it, but he has made a great deal of money selling merchandise. With that in mind, he copyrighted the concept of ‘ruining Christmas’.

Speaking to Off The Perch, the Grinch told us why May poses a threat to him:

“I’ve worried she’s ripping me off for a while,

Just look at that frown! Clearly my style!

And observe her hatred of humanity,

None would deny that she took that from me.

But too far she took it, and went after Christmas!

That shall not stand, as Santa’s my witness!

I called up my lawyers and set them upon her.

Now I can’t say more about this legal matter.”

No, no, no

May has denied that she stole the idea from the Grinch. Her nose grew as she said it though, which landed her in further legal trouble – this time with the puppet Pinocchio.

‘Tis the season to be a wally, it seems.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
