A grumkin is a children's fanciful monster
"In Old Nan's stories the grumkins crafted magic things that could make a wish come true. Did I wish him dead? she wondered, before she remembered she was too old to believe in grumkin."

|2.||there was an old lady who swallowed a fly|
one of the darkest children's stories ever that ends every verse with the words "Perhaps She'll Die", with the exception of the very end where the old lady is finally dead
Guy 1: Did you hear how there was an old lady who swallowed a fly?
Guy 2: No what happened to her?
Guy 1: She died
Guy 2: Why did nobody help her?
Guy 1: She died after she ate the horse.
Guy 2: Wtf!
Fuzzy-haired black dolls with smiley red mouths made popular in children's stories by Enid Blyton, such as Noddy. The toys were mass produced, and even golliwog biscuits were made! But alas, in recent 'politically correct' years, golliwog numbers reduced, and were even banned in some areas because they were considered 'racist'. Golliwog biscuits were renamed "Scalliwags" and the toys disappeared from toy store shelves. But the occasional golliwog can still be found in specialised teddy bear and doll shops, as well as hand knitted ones at market stalls.
Hey, look at this golliwog! How cute! But wait a minute... it's black. Oh no, we can't have black dolls. That's racist! Only white dolls should be available. Then EVERYONE will be happy!
|4.||I want to hear more stories about evil clowns|
When you're all sitting around, drinking and sharing Scary Stories, e.g. John Wayne Gacy who dressed as a clown, and the Evil Clowns who kidnap children in South America, The Clown from Stephen King's "It"
The party is breaking up because it's almost 3AM, and Joe says...
"Damn, I want to hear more stories about evil clowns!"
|5.||America's Got Talent|
A piece-of-shit "talent" competition where people only vote for singers, dancers, and children who give sob-stories because they have a disease but have no skill at all.
Since the 3rd season, the ONLY successful acts have been those listed above. These assholes have killed a show with such a good concept and proves that America only likes generic, dry, boring singers/dancers that. for some reason, couldn't audition for "American Idol", "America's best Dance Crew" or "So You Think You Can Dance". Unique, fresh, exciting acts don't stand a chance.
Also, two of the three judges are currently English. Nice "American" show you got there
Bob: Did Harmonica Pierre get through on America's Got Talent?
John: No, instead, a kid that sounds like Kermit the Frog made it because he said he had Autism. Two guys that sing and another that dances also made it.
Bob: (Sarcasm) Wow, I've never seen those before. This is such a "unique" and "versatile" competition. (/sarcasm) Man, the show has gone down the drain since the Terry Fator won....
Pre-bedtime drama carried out by a toddler or preschooler who is seeking any and all excuses to stay awake. Inspired by the children's bedtime story "Llama Llama Red Pajama".
I can't watch American Idol right now - Madison won't go to sleep. It's llama drama time.
A bear shaped bipedal character from children’s stories. A gruffalo's lower jaw extends beyond the upper jaw with two large upward pointing teeth. The gruffalo has a heart of gold but it's outward appearance is that of one that does not wish to be messed with.
The term gruffalo can be used as a semi-endearment to describe someone who is quite gruff (traditional meaning) i.e. with a temporary but short and snappy introductory temperament. A gruffalo likes to show that he is gruff (by moving things roughly and hunching the shoulders) but is capable of maintaining a reasonable (if a little gruff) conversation if you wish to. The gruffalo often appears in the morning and arrives late at the office so his gruffness is visible to other staff.
oh - look out! here comes the gruffalo.
