Mr. Scrooge vs. The Grinch

Mr. Scrooge vs. The Grinch

Santa Claus may be the season's greatest icon, but look behind him into the Christmas shadows and you will see two of the meanest meanies ever to spread holiday meanness.

But which is meaner?

In the left corner, weighing in at 180 pounds (give or take the weight of a few Christmas ghosts), is Ebenezer Scrooge, the Tightwad Terror of London who, it is said, is a "scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner" (appearing courtesy of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol).

And in the right corner, at 247 pounds (based on Seussian proportions), is the Grinch, the Horror of Whoville, bent on stealing Christmas and all the cheer that comes with it.

The Question of the year!!, Who should wear the Mantle of Maximum Meanness this Christmas?

To the top right of this blog page is a poll where you can place your vote on who should be crowned Christmas Meanie. Voting will finish on Christmas Day and the winner will be revealed the day after Christmas. Place your vote!!!
