Everyone knows about The Grinch’s past: the brooding, the theft, the wrath. But most people choose to remember the generosity. Since the 1957 documentary that featured his conversion from villain to philanthropist, everyone outside Whoville just assumed he’d lived happily ever after.
But within town, there were dark rumors and innuendo. Talk of secrets and goings on at the mall.
As part of an ongoing series, this outlet has uncovered records that show that Ms. Lou Who, now 62 and living in the neighboring town of Hawtch-Hawtch as a beekeeper, filed a complaint in 1969 that she’d been pursued romantically by The Grinch when she was just 14.
The police report, while odd with it’s rhyming couplets, is consistent with the local dialect of Whoville in the 1960’s.
