Renaming Christmas Classics

Better Book Titles realizes you hate reading books.  That's why the site takes well-known pieces of literature and replaces the title with an explanation of the story.  That way you can read the title and be done with the thing.

Every day this week the site is tackling Christmas classic from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol to Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

And the site makes a good point: Why the hell do those Whos cut the Grinch so much slack at the end?  He gave back what he stole and suddenly he's the town hero??  After what he's done all of Whoville would be justified kicking that asshole right in the teeth.

I guess Whoville is located in some bullshit, liberal, blue state part of Vermont.  You steal my presents, you wouldn't be having a merry Christmas.
