Holiday Villain Throwdown: Grinch vs. Scrooge

Brenna Clarke Gray

Staff Writer

Part muppet and part college faculty member, Brenna Clarke Gray holds a PhD in Canadian Literature while simultaneously holding two cats named Chaucer and Swift. It's a juggling act. Raised in small-town Ontario, Brenna has since been transported by school to the Atlantic provinces and by work to the Vancouver area, where she now lives with her stylish cyclist/webgeek husband and the aforementioned cats. When not posing by day as a forserious academic, she can be found painting her nails and watching Degrassi (through the critical lens of awesomeness). She posts about graphic narratives at Graphixia, and occasionally she remembers to update her own blog, Not That Kind of Doctor. Blog: Not That Kind of Doctor Twitter: @brennacgray

This week, the Throwdown is back with the answer to an old favourite: Who’s the meanest one?  Dr. Seuss’ Grinch, or Dickens’ Ebeneezer Scrooge?

Grinch  vs.  

Who's Meaner? Dr. Seuss’ Grinch or Dickens’ Ebeneezer Scrooge?

Well, there you go – the Grinch is the meanest one going.  I didn’t think he would be, but you can’t argue with science!  (Well, actually, you can – take your disagreements and critiques to the comments, and I’ll meet you there.)
