So I watched Willy Wonka again the other day (the original with Gene
Wilder). Of course, who doesn't love the Oompa Loompas?

So I sing along "You will live in happiness, too. Like the
Oompa-"................wait. Ya know, they don't seem very happy, really.

So maybe their advice is not that good? Have we been snookered?

I think it may have to do with their experiences with the Vermicious knids;
repressed emotions perhaps?

Further, I think that "Charlie, Grandpa and the Fizzy-lifting drink" is an
updated version of the flight of Icarus.
