I've never seen the Wizard of Oz.
OK, get it out of your system. Do what ever you need to do to express your surprise, horror, disbelief, etc. Apparently this is a classic.
I was graciously invited to see the musical 'Wicked' by a friend. I wasn't sure what to expect at all.
Oh, I knew the basic story, tornado, girl and dog, scarecrow, cowardly lion, tin man, wicked witch. I guess I had the mental Coles notes version.
I liked it so much I bought the soundtrack. Now I just need to get 'Popular' out of my head.
La la la la
We're gonna make
When I see depressing creatures
With unprepossessing features
I remind them on their own behalf
To think of
Celebrated heads of state or
Specially great communicators
Did they have brains or knowledge?
Don't make me laugh!
They were popular!
Please -It's all about popular!
It's not about aptitude
It's the way you're viewed
So it's very shrewd to be
Very very popular
Oddly, I saw the movie the very next night and my first reaction was 'That's not how it happened!"
