Inspired by a recent reading of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas,

I bring you this story and if you like rhymes you'll love this!

And though it has none of the brilliance of the great Dr. Seuss,

I hope you like this tale of a snob who dishes out verbal abuse.

Well now, I must say this was a delight, reading the tale of this snobbish playwright.  From fits over food to the odd bout of rage, I can see why howls of laughter met him on stage!  The story likewise I greeted with laughter, starting with the first sentence (plus all the ones after).  The text was well-scripted with ideal word choices and you properly wrote all the characters' voices.  I commend you, good sir, for taking the time to write 2,000-plus words and to make it all rhyme!  :pinkiehappy:

BRAVO! BRAVO! ENCORE! ENCORE!

Rhyming meter isn't perfect, but I'd be astonished if it was and insist you stop making silly fanfictions and start making money with your poems. Regardless of perceived quality, this was one of the best fanfictions I've ever read. You didn't simply copy the Grinch, you made your own story even though you followed the original poem's plot (character hates something, gets idea, implements idea, idea backfires, "puzzles and puzzles" over it, then the Big Revelation).

ENCORE! ENCORE! BRAVO! BRAVO!

Very nice, especially getting everything to rhyme. I ended up reading the whole thing out loud to myself, and while some of the rhymes were a little off, it still flowed well.

A fic like this is like a rare bird! Truly the funniest thing i have heard! I must admit, the style was uncouth. But it made me laugh, to tell you the truth. My mind was in heaven, from me, not a boo. And for this wonderful fic, i give a "thank you".

Hey, it's late perhaps but I would like to let a comment! ^^

I liked your story a lot. Especially for the choice of characters. :derpyderp2:

This fic is wonderful, well-written and original. The snob is interesting with his evolution.

Perhaps one thing to say : I would it have to be longer but it's already nice.

Congrats and good luck for your future projects! :twilightsmile:
