Profile: Ebenezer Scrooge

This is where using the royal we gets us in trouble. Yakov actually LIKES Charles Dickens. Yeah, I don't get it either.

Merry Christmas, gentile readers!


  1. I cannot stand Dickens except Tale of Two Cities. I honestly enjoyed that one, and if I had to pick something, I'd pick that. And if you're going to like any form of Scrooge, I'd go with the Patrick Stuart one-man-show. That, gotta admit, is pretty awesome. I'm surprised you didn't go off on a tangent about Scrooge, a noble character, but get really fired up and burned over gargamel.

  2. Dear Not Quite So Ananomous,

    it's just that I hate Dickens so much that it dwarfs any disdain I have for Scrooge.

    Yet, come to think of it, Dickens doesn't even make my top 3 hated authors.

    3. Nathaniel Hawthorne
    2. Herman Melville
    1. Henry David Thoreau

    Thankfully, not a Jew among them...

  3. "This is where using the royal we gets us in trouble." I don't get this sentence you sound like Gollum from Lord Of The Rings. And was Charles Dickens Jewish or a flagrant anti-Semite?
