Dang! That Willy Wonka debate went really well — even if exactly zero people supported my argument.
But hey, these things happen. As a writer, I am used to terrible, terrible rejection. So please be aware that I am not crying. Not at all. I just have a little something in my eye.
Okay, enough tomfoolery. Please join me in thanking the wonderful (and persuasive!) Cricket Muse, for being my sparring partner.
I also want to thank all of the wonderful people who chimed in on the debate. A few of your comments were so convincing, I felt my pro-Depp resolve wavering just a wee little bit.
If you liked the debate and want to see more, I bear good news. Debatables will be a monthly feature. Cricket and I are planning another throwdown for August that will be hosted on Cricket’s blog. So keep your eyes peeled — especially if you feel compelled to humble me even more than you already have.
Oh, and one more thing. I recently found this hilarious (and educational!) Wonka video on YouTube, which, offers up a theory as to why Wilder’s Wonka wanted to give away his factory to some random kid. Give it a look-see! You’ll be glad you did.
