This just occured to me.
As much as I love Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factoy, the ending is just ridicilous. There is absolutely no way Charlie would hand over The Everlasting Gobstopper. Ok we get it, Charlie is the bastion of honesty he’s not going to slip it to Mr. Slugworth (now working for Alan Sugar by the way) but there’s just no way he wouldn’t keep it for himself anyway. It’s an everlasting gobstopper! Why would he hand it over!? Most unplausible ending ever.
Train of thought: I was installing a wireless scanner, and still get amazed by that kind of stuff. I put a photo in the scanner and it magically floated through the air and popped up on my monitor! Just like Mike Teevee.
Related: I once did a mixtape called “The Everlasting Gobstopper mix”. When you got to the end of the tape you’d turn it over and it continued at the same point in the mix on the other side. Then when you got to the end of that side, the same thing would happen. I managed to get clear tapes with no markings at all. No A. No B. No start. No finish. An everlasting gobstopper mix. I think I got those tapes free with Cornflakes.
Yes this one is definitely getting filed under random.
