There's a show about films, many people have learned,
Where they shit on the films; it's called Diminishing Returns.

They shit with their mouths, they shit with their splanuses,
They shit with their writing, everything but their anuses.

This week, the gang gather to shit with their ghrishmas,
All over the film How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
