Don't miss our Holliday Theory Wear!! ►

The Grinch is a Christmas classic in all of it's iterations. From the original to the Carrey to the newest 2018 version, the Grinch has found his way into our holiday traditions. In a previous theory I talked about the problems with his heart growing three sizes. Today, I'm here to figure out if the Grinch was RIGHT to be angry at the Whos. You see, I think there was a reason we all missed - a medical reason. Get your earmuffs ready, Theorists, we're about to get LOUD!

8:20 The AVERAGE sled may travel around 19 mph, but remember, the sled the Grinch is on is filled with a WHOLE LOT of christmas stuff. All that weight is gonna do slow him down. That would mean that he is closer and the Who Noise could actually be VERY bothersome.

Me and the grinch are similar... Music is what bothers me the most, also the hum of a car, and the tick in my room, I don't know we're it's coming from... But I hear it... 👀

As a person with extreme mesophonia, hearing someone talk about it and spread the word is an amazing feeling. It’s really hard to deal with, so I’m glad to know I’m not the only one.

MatPat, I think you overlooked the fact that they actually told you how large Mt. Crumpit is in the original movie / book when you were calculating how long the distance between Mt. Crumpit and Who-ville was. Slap on a foot or maybe 15 and you get how far the Grinch is from Who-Ville!

I- MATPAT YOU JUST MADE ME REALIZE THAT I HAVE MISOPHNIA. I thought it was just a weird pet peeve that I had! Ever since I was about the same age as Stephanie I've had the same problem- I remember the teachers calling my mom almost everyday at lunch time, because I would literally throw up from just hearing kids eat. I thought I had some can of weird anxiety tick (especially cause I have braces) about eating, to this day I will eat in my room or after my parents are done because it bugs me so much. (as Stephanie said, its rare that she is angry, I was like SAME) another thing that drives me crazy is the sound the squeegee makes, when someone is cleaning mirrors. Or sometimes we will be in a restaurant and everyone will be jamming out to music thats playing but sometimes I can't hear it over everyone talking.

has anyone heard of other theories? There is one where the grinch is even more evil than he seems, and this theory has research so, if u go to horton hears a WHO then the whos have to make a bunch of noise to not die, and essentially the grinch does not want the noise, and if u connect that to horton hears a who, then the grinch basically wants his whole species wiped out

The Grinch doesn't have misophonia, the Whoos in Whooville are just inconsiderately noisy nonstop. As soon as the Christmas season starts they never shut up as long as they're awake, and they're awake from dawn to dark. That would cause anyone who isn't a Christmas enthusiast to become overwhelmed and feel frustrated and angry.

Theory: Cindy Lou Who is in a way the villain! All Grinch hearts are like that. They’re just smaller than a Who’s. So when this Grinch’s heart grew one size bigger than Who hearts, it’s actually a severe medical problem.

I really hope Steph didn’t have to deal with her parents telling her she’s rude for leaving the table when she was young because they’re gross eaters. I don’t have misophonia, but I hate mouth noises, like when people eat, or when people just make noises with their mouth. Like, they’re just moving their tongue around. Those wet noises. It’s disgusting.
