It started with a pot-leaf Jack-O-Lantern and a creepy tarantula showing up at a trim scene on Halloween and then for Thanksgiving we got turkey-bag jokes. Now the Grinch busted someone’s cannabis tree. Reading the words from the famous “How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” I couldn’t help but use them as line-by-line commentary on the story.
German police find pot plant adorned as Xmas tree
The Associated PressThursday, December 9, 2010
Then he got an idea! An awful idea!
THE GRINCH GOT A WONDERFUL, AWFUL IDEA!
BERLIN — German police say an “old hippy” is facing possible prosecution for his version of the, ahem, highest Christmas tree – a festively decorated two-meter- (two-yard-) tall marijuana plant.
Then he slid down the chimney. A rather tight pinch.
But, if Santa could do it, then so could the Grinch
Koblenz police spokesman Ralf Schomisch says officers raided the apartment of the 58-year-old man following a tip Monday and uncovered a cache of 5.3 ounces (150 grams) of marijuana.
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
Then in the living room they discovered the tree – a pot plant adorned with Christmas lights. The suspect, whose name was not released, said he had planned to decorate it further and putting presents under it at Christmas.
“And NOW!” grinned the Grinch, “I will stuff up the tree!”
But it was not to be. Schomisch said Thursday that authorities “had to destroy this pre-Christmas dream” and seize the plant as evidence.
The Grinch had been caught by this tiny Who daughter,
Who’d got out of bed for a cup of cold water.
She stared at the Grinch and said, “Santy Claus, why,”
“Why are you taking our Christmas tree? WHY?”
But, you know, that old Grinch was so smart and so slick,
He thought up a lie, and he thought it up quick!
“Why, my sweet little tot,” the fake Santy Claus lied,
“There’s a light on this tree that won’t light on one side.”
“So I’m taking it home to my workshop, my dear.”
“I’ll fix it up there. Then I’ll bring it back here.”
And his fib fooled the child. Then he patted her head,
And he got her a drink and he sent her to bed.
And when Cindy-Lou Who went to bed with her cup,
HE went to the chimney and stuffed the tree up!
