on who hash continued

Tuesday, November 11th, 2003

By golly, it seems that Coonce-Ewing may have the answer to the Who Hash conundrum.

He writes, “After thinking about it for quite some time however, it seems that Seuss was a bit more sadistic that we realize. After all, if Corned Beef Hash is made from Corned Beef, and Roast Beef Hash is made from Roast Beef, than by simple conjecture we arrive at the horrible truth! Who Hash is made from Whos!”

    Yes those wonderful little Whos, blissful, happy, dancing in the streets singing their songs… hiding their dark cannibalistic practices from the outside world.

    I would imagine that they’ve already had their Soylent Green moment and have dealt with it.

    Oh No! Who Hash is made from Whos!… Could Dr. Suess have indeed been that sadistic..and in a children’s book and movie?….

    Wow, Solyent Green aspects to the tale of Whos..Well, the Grinch is a mighty dark character, so it is not out of the realm of possibility that there is more to Whoville than we know…;)

    Sort of reminds me of “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas”…there is a dark aspect hidden away from the rest of the town… It is there because it must be..because without it, the town would not exits…

    Kind of like you couldn’t have the Whos without the Grinch.. It is the Grinch that complements the Whos by association… The Grinch is the dark side of the Whos…

    Speaking of dark stuff..Has anyone ever seen “The Nightmare Before Christmas”…[I believe the director is Tim Burton] That is one scary Christmas/Halloween movie…

    The scary Pumpkin king takes over Santas job and gives a child a dismembered head…

    Rudolph is a ghostly dog…

    And the real Santa is kidnapped by the Boogey man…

    I saw this film and it does give you the creeps…Certainly not the warm family feeling of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” or “It’s a Wonderful Life”

    Personally I find “It’s a wonderful life” to be one of the most frightening “Holiday” movies there is.

    George is a complete business failure who fails in the bank business and yet everyone still has the faith to invest their money there. And of course in the end, a bell rings and the angel gets its wings.

    Wouldn’t it be more fitting if at the end George sits tensed… waiting. His daughter asks “What’s wrong Daddy?”
    “Nothing honey, I’m just listening for a bell.”
    and the movie fades to black in silence….

    The Nightmare before Christmas is in fact a Tim Burton film – Jack Skellington is the Halloween King you are referring to.

    Thanks Christopher for the insight and info on “A Nightmare Before Christmas”…Indeed, I was right..it was a Tim Burton film..certainly it has that “Burton” feel to it…creepy…

    As for “It’s A Wonderful Life”…I don’t think it is frightening at all…

    George is not the failure..remember it was the other unlce Billy [Thomas Mitchell] who lost the money at the bank.. You know, he was supposed to take the deposits to the bank but he left them there and I think Mr. Potter picked them up…

    Then George went crazy trying to get Uncle Billy to remember where he left the deposits… I like the scene where Uncle Billy is totally despondent..he has his head in his arms and he is crying and his pet squirrel crawls up his arm…

    Funny how this supposedly warm family film deals so effectively with desperation and dark themes of suicide and shame..[from being a failure at business..misplacing the money and the prospect of going to jail]…

    Isn’t that what George tells Uncle Billy?…That the lost money will mean bankruptcy, scandal, and jail…

    I guess there was a time when folks worried about such things…
