You're a Mean One... (Alliance)
120 (Requires 60)
A creature called "The Abominable Greench" stole our shipment of treats, <name>. Be careful though! He's vicious and a bunch of those little green gnomes do his bidding!
You're gonna need some help in facing him. Rumor has it he's holding our treats and our beloved Metzen the Reindeer at Growless Cave in the Hillsbrad Foothills! Find the treats <name> and bring them back before the celebration is ruined and all the children of Stormwind are disappointed!
<Name> - our Feast of Winter Veil will be ruined without those treats to restock! Graccu himself will miss out on sharing his delicious meat pies with all the good boys and girls this season...
You found it! You've saved Smokywood Pasture's Feast of Winter Veil!
You're a true hero to everyone here at Smokywood Pastures and to all the children, of course!

Speak with Metzen the Reindeer:
- Around this reindeer's neck is a tack with the Smokeywood Pastures logo on it and a name - "Metzen".
- Metzen looks at you with sad, forlorn eyes. It is almost as if the reindeer has been immobilized by some unseen force.
- You're free, Metzen. That bad greench can't hurt you any more.
- Metzen's eyes light up with reindeer joy.
The name of this quest is a line in the theme to How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The enemy that is to be defeated, is indeed, a parody of the name "Grinch."
"You're a mean one, Mister Grinch."
