"You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch."

A grinch in Apple Valley stole someone's Mr. Grinch yard display in a rather ironic act of un-Chrismas-like cheer.

December 1, Josh Strohman of Apple Valley took to Facebook to share that his handmade yard decoration had been stolen in the night.

By the next day, his post had been shared over 6k times (he claims...the post only shows 76 shares on Facebook), appeared in the Minnesota thread of reddit and earned a mention on 93X in the Cities. According to one Facebook comment, the story was also featured in the 5:00pm news on Channel 4.

Due to the outpouring of responses, Strohman took to Facebook with an update:

Sounds like someone in Apple Valley needs a little Cindy Lou Who in his or her life!
