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!!

Jessica Alba Vs. Screenwriter John August

Filed under: Film FlickersOops!Jessica Alba

jessica alba vs john august

We're not sure how popular this comment is going to make you, Jessica!

Here's what Jessica Alba has said about her thoughts on actors and scripts:

“Good actors never use the script unless it’s amazing writing. All the good actors I’ve worked with, they all say whatever they want to say.”

Here's what screenwriter John August had to say in response:

“I have to believe she was misquoted, or excerpted in some unflattering way … Oh, Jessica. Where to start? … Following your logic, you’ve never been in a movie with both good actors and amazing writing. That may be true, but it might hurt the feelings of David Wain, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. … Screenwriters can be your best friends. We are pushovers for attractive people who pay attention to us. I wrote that bathtub scene in Big Fish because Jessica Lange made brief eye contact with me. So if you’re not getting great writing — and honestly, you’re not — ask to have lunch with the screenwriter. I’ve seen you on interviews. You’re charming. That charm could work wonders.”

We must say, John August makes some valid points, and he DID write the screenplay for Big Fish, which was an excellent film.

Sorry to say it Jessica, but you DID act in Valentine's Day and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and The Eye and The Love Guru.

Maybe it's not a terrible idea to thumb through that screenplay, every once in a while. Just a thought!

Team August or Team Alba?
