sporting holiday

Know what *really* concerns me, though?

While playing this game, the Whos have 6 points, and successfully make another score…

…cut to the rollerskaters, ready to make another attempt…

…cut back?

Still only 6. The little bugger didn’t even bother to write down their last point! 

Unless these cheerful Whos have games which only track failed attempts, I’m guessing the real reason the Grinch hated Christmas was sloppy scorekeeping.
