In a recent interview with BBC Radio 4's Today program, Liccy Dahl revealed that her late husband initially depicted Charlie as "a little black boy."

Roald's biographer Donald Sturrock told the program that the author "had a foot in both camps" in regards to both American and British sensibilities — which, according to Liccy, is the reason behind Charlie Bucket's original ethnicity:

Filed under: BookzScary!

roald dahl wonka cover new

Oompa loompa doopity what the eff?

No, this weird vision isn't from Willy Wonka's scary tunnel!

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and instead of putting Charlie, Willy Wonka, or heck, even a golden ticket up on the cover, Penguin Modern Classics decided to use a photo of a girl that looks like a human doll!

Wait, was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory actually about Toddlers in Tiaras?! Because we might have to reread it then.

SRSLY! This is Valley of the Dolls level of weird! Why use a photo of creepily sexualized girl?!

Oompa Loompa Employee Gunned Down After Stabbing Co-Worker At The Chocolate Factory

WIlly Wonka Chocolate Factory Stabbing, Shooting

Oompa Loompa, do-ba-dee-doo /
We've got a wacky story for you.

Working at a chocolate factory sounds amazeballs, right?

Well even the world's second greatest occupation — number one is quality control at a brothel — occasionally leads to workplace stabbings!!

A Cambodian worker at TCHO Chocolate Factory stabbed his colleague with box cutters.

We hated Tim Burton/John August's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory remake TOO, but that's no reason to resort to violence!!

One SFO police officer described Tuesday's unprovoked attack best. He said:

"He started cutting the victim for no apparent reason."

After which, the suspect fled the crime scene with weapon in hand. Eventually the police put a bullet in his chest.

Come on, guy!

Even if you work next to Veruca Salt on an assembly line, stabbing a coworkers is NEVER cool!!
