I remember watching Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory a lot as a kid. I watched it so many times that I had memorize lines from the scene where Willy Wonka takes all of the contest winners on a boat through a weird tunnel.
Little did I know at my age to much older viewers this scene probably looked much more like a bad acid trip. But to me it seemed like a pleasurable boat ride full of visual flavor and Willy Wonka was decided to sing them a little diddly down the chocolate river stream….
I didn’t revisit that movie until I started college and for some reason it became a movie I would start watching out of habit. Around the same time I found out about a website called IMDb It was a goldmine for me to find out trivia on movies so of course one of the first movies I looked up was this one. And I looked up all of the actors that played Oompa Loompas and well my curiosity got the best of me so I decided to look up the actors on facebook and found one of them!
….and without a doubt in my mind I decided to facebook one of them!
A couple of days later he accepted my friend request!I was so excited that he accepted! I thought to myself Wow this is so cool I am now facebook pals with one of the original actors that played one of the Oompa Loompas!
Then it was a month later I get a message from him: ” I am going to have you remove you as a friend your facebook content is too weird and you do not like any of my posts!”
I was shocked and I was not prepare for the diva attitudes of an actor! Oh well at least I can always remember fond memories of the movie and the book. But I still feel a little uneasy when I see a group shot of the oompa loompas….
Until next time!

i think to be told by an Oompa Loompa that “your content is too weird” for them is the biggest compliment you could ever get!! hahah
What do you get when you don’t like my posts?
“You don’t Like any of my posts”??? Orange narcissist.
