We Bet You Never Noticed This Detail From "The Grinch" As A Kid

Those Whos are whoing it up.

So, you know The Grinch, starring Jim Carrey, right?

The movie follows Dr. Suess's classic tale of how the Grinch tries to stop Christmas for the Whos in Whoville, and adds a few flashbacks to the Grinch's early days.

We learn that Baby Grinch floated into Whoville in a little basket, landing outside a Who house.

Baby Grinch looks through the window at the Whos partying it up at their "annual holiday get-together," as the movie puts it.

As we zoom closer, we see...a bowl...of keys?

Baby Grinch does not react well to this.

What's wrong, BB Grinch? Other than being left outside in the cold until MORNING.

So, what's the deal? Are the Whos trying to avoid drinking and driving? Is this a game?

No, it's a KEY PARTY.

The Whos are swingers. Christmas-loving, kinda sanctimonious, roast beast–eating swingers.

So. Good luck getting that image out of your mind. Merry Christmas!
