I love combining by love for the holidays with my love for all things creepy and bizarre. I couldn't help myself after I'd heard one of these particular theories. Let's dive in to today's post on three bizarre theories from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."
1: WAS MAX THROWN IN THE TRASH?
If Max ended up on Mount Crumpit with the Grinch, there is a possibility that a Who child got bored of him and "Dumped Him to Crumpit." This theory also stems from the popular issue we have in the U.S. of people adopting or buying pets without being committed to caring for them only to give them away later.
2: WHERE IS THE BABY THAT GOT KNOCKED OFF COURSE AT THE BEGINNING?
So, it begs the question, is there a whole family of Grinch-like creatures somewhere else? Did the baby at the beginning go to the Grinch's family, did he end up with another family, or did he get stranded somewhere never to be found? There is so much left unanswered that this could be a whole separate movie!
3: ARE THE WHO'S CANNIBALS?
Don't get me started on how the little legs look like the shape of a Who with gloves on its hands. There are also clues like "Who Hash" which would cause someone to think that it is hash made from Who's. Then again, baby oil and baby powder isn't made out of babies...right?
"YOU'RE A MEAN ONE, MR. GRINCH"
"SIMPLY HAVING A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS TIME"
And, in case you didn't know, the song came before the movie. The first recording of the song with the extra voices came in 1942, and Crosby's solo came in 1947. The movie didn't premiere until 1954.
"ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU"
Michael Buble also recorded a cover of the song in the same year, which reached the top spot in the top hits of that year. Poor Mariah!
"I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS"
dressed up as Santa and kissing the child's mother. They lifted their ban on the song following the meeting.
Halloween is right around the corner, so I figured it would be a great idea to cover some Halloween costumes I found on Pinterest that make me laugh or cringe. Let me know if you laughed or cringed for each of these in the comments.

If you're like me, you enjoy listening and learning about true crime cases on YouTube or through podcasts. Today, I figured I would share a few of my favorite true crime YouTubers and share their channels so you might check them out.
These are in no particular order, by the way!

I think the only horror-related thing I’ve never talked about here on the blog are horror games. I love them, and I absolutely love watching play-throughs of them, especially those done by some of the jumpier YouTubers.
So, I thought in this blog post I could talk about some of the games I and/or my husband have played that I would say are the best horror games out there.
1: LEFT 4 DEAD/LEFT 4 DEAD 2
2: BENDY AND THE INK MACHINE
3: THE EVIL WITHIN 2
4: THE WALKING DEAD
5: DYING LIGHT
If you've been a follower of the blog for long, you'll know that I absolutely love fall! Today, Sept. 22, is the offical First Day of Fall, which has me excited and ready for the months to come. No matter what's going on in the world, I always have a sense of happiness toward the end of the year. The end of the year brings birthdays and holidays that mean lots of family get-togethers and time with the people I love.
HOW WILL YOU CELEBRATE?
Tell me in the comments how you plan to celebrate the first day of fall! Hope you all have a fantastic day today. Please connect with me on social media and remember to also connect over on TikTok @imagoofygabbie.
At the start of the COVID stay-at-home order, no one could seem to get their hands on a
Nintendo Switch because so many of us Animal Crossing addicts were buying them up to
experience the newest game in the Animal Crossing series, Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
The game takes places on an island, where you can build a life, a home (that will put you into
major debt), and much more. However, many players have dreams of different updates that
would make the game play even more fun than it already is. Here are some of my suggestions:
1. SELF-IDENTIFYING FOSSILS
It would be great, following the donation of all of the fossils, for them to auto identify when you dig them up, so you don’t have to wait through Blathers’ groggy speech when you wake him up.
2. AN INDEX FOR THE ART
3. LIST OF DONATED MUSEUM ITEMS
4. LAYING TILE/BRICK UNDER BUILDINGS
5. MORE UPGRADES TO THE NOOK STORE
6. A COFFEE SHOP
7. MORE COMMUNITY EVENTS
8. ABILITY TO THROW PARTIES
9. GETTING BFF's PHOTOS MORE EASILY
10. USE CUSTOM DESIGN DOWNLOAD FOR FLAG
I am not very talented at creating a flag, and I found some designs I really liked and downloaded them. I was sad to see that I couldn’t use them as my flag design! Help us artistically challenged players by allowing us to use custom designs.
If your family is a lot like mine, you all probably get together with extended family members on Christmas Eve to celebrate together. However, sometimes these get togethers can be boring. So, I wanted to suggest a few games you can play with one another to have some more fun this holiday season!

If you haven't heard, Disney is officially pulling its titles from Netflix in order to draw in customers for its new streaming service, Disney Plus.
You may be asking, "why do you care, aren't you like 26?" Yes, I am. But, first of all, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy Disney movies. Second of all, Disney owns a ton of titles that go beyond their cute animated character movies.
I've seen several blogs and articles containing predictions about Netflix's future. With Disney Plus charging about $7 a month, and Netflix charging about double that for multiple watchers, Disney Plus seems to be the better deal.
In addition, Disney Plus will get back the superhero movies, Disney shows, and a TON of Lifetime movies (let's all shed a tear for having fewer sappy Christmas movies to watch this season).
That was the Nickelodeon show from my teenhood, Victorious. I LOVED that show growing up, and I always love to take a walk down memory lane by rewatching old shows.
What if, and hear me out here, what if Netflix teamed up to exclusively offer streams of old and new Nickelodeon shows?
Since Nickelodeon and Disney are like the N'SYNC and Backstreet Boys of television, I have a good feeling that many people will stay for a chance to see some older Nickelodeon shows (and the newer ones).
If not, I know that Netflix has made strides in their original series. They are really good, and I wouldn't be surprised if the inclusion and continuation of those will keep the subscriptions coming!
As for me and my husband, I'm not sure what we're going to do. My wallet says another subscription isn't a good idea. However, it may be something we do down the line when money isn't as tight.
What do you think? Would you stay with Netflix if you could watch old Nick shows?
Below is a collection of YouTube videos that are perfect for this season. I have added text to clarify where needed.
Bunny from Grav3yardGirl is one of my favorite people to watch in this season because she and I have a similar love for Halloween. I love watching her treat bag hauls. She lives in Texas and always has a huge treat bag to give to her trick or treaters! She's done these for years, so you can binge them!
I've recently gotten into Sierra Schultzzie and she has been doing some fun Halloween content. There are a ton of YouTubers who are doing Halloween costume videos right now.
Honestly, any Loey Lane video is perfect for Halloween. She reads scary stories and Creepy Pastas, so it's a must for this season!
Hailey Reese is also another great person to look at for Halloween content. She talks about hauntings and sometimes will read subscriber stories.
I debated adding Eleanor Neale to this because she mostly covers true crime. This isn't meant as any disrespect. I am personally fascinated year round with learning more about cases and how the police have and are working to solve them. She also gives the "no disrespect" disclaimer before she covers the story. She has covered solved and unsolved murders with good and bad endings.
This is just a small collection of some of my favorite gamers and their scary games playthroughs. Markiplier has a "3 Scary Games" series on his channel. Daz doesn't post a ton of horror game content, but Jack does.
Be advised that these guys do curse so, if you aren't OK with that, don't watch them! I would recommend that you look for a good horror game or horror game series playthrough to watch this season!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
