And the ruby slippers go to...
But first, the honorable mentions:
Glinda rode bubble
she was fuzzy and glowing
she had some good drugs
Gave me a good laugh the first time I checked for new 'ku. Yes, she sure did, and I bet she kept them in her hat.
"There's no place like home"
That's what the film likes to say
But what if home sucks?
Prying the lid off the movie's catchphrase is just what I was looking for, and I've read a lot of funny stuff about how ludicrous this movie's message is if you think about it. Robot Chicken had a sketch in which the whole movie was broken down into three short lines:
Dorothy (on farm): I want to leave home!
Dorothy (in Oz): I want to go home!
Dorothy (in bed): I was home all along!
who saw this coming?
topic triggered compulsive
urge to watch "the wiz"
The combined might of Mr. and Mrs. AC turned out a number of good ones, but this bit of business tickled me the most. That's because I always love it when the blog inspires people to watch weird movies they're meant to hate.
Witch knows where it's at,
Gets 'em high on poppies, then
Glinda adds the "snow".
Can it be that I never thought of that as a coke reference? Anyway, that cracked me up.
And now the winner!
From Johnny Sweatpants:
Welcome to our world!
By the way, you killed someone
But it's just a witch
Ha! In a way the last line is more of a denouement, the real action being the interplay between the first two. Exactly the sort of twisty work I was looking for. Congratulations, Mr. Haikupants! Hump Day is yours!
