Uncle Sammy And The Chocolate Factory

Now I've seen it! Lots of squirrels in it! Without the squirrels it would have got four Keatons but because of all the squirrels Superblog!! gives Charlie and the chocolate factory five Keatons out of five.

The Michael Jackson pallor. The unnaturally white teeth. The smile stretched with insincerity. Johnny Depp's deliciously demented take on Willy Wonka, the candy man of Roald Dahl's book, demands to be seen. Director Tim Burton surrounds Depp with miraculous visuals of spun sugar and creeping menace. Their missionary lunacy is a treat for twisted children of all ages.

For your information I'd like to mention that the character that I identify myself most with is little Augustus. I eat a lot of chocolate and I have a creepy accent. I'm not very fat though.

Fuckshit! Squirrels are the lowest form of life!

What triggered all the squirrel hate? Maybe you can coerce this guy to wipe out your local squirrel population for you so you can rest easier.

I'm a big fan of the Willy Wonka movie and plan to see it soon. I also like Johnny Depp's work although I'm not a big fan of Burton's.

Hmm, I might use him as the Outpost-1's rating system, so as not to incite the copyright-gods' wrath by using Micheal Keaton since you guys have him already.

Anyway, on a totally unrelated topic (changing topics suddenly is pretty much expected at Superblog!! right?), I had an interesting day yesterday. It pretty much turned into a dry-land version of this story.

All that typing and linking zapped my meager html-powers. I'm going to go lay down and let my kids jump up and down on my head to rejuvenate them.

Don Skvirello killed my family. With his sharp, sharp teeth. Also, his evil glare froze them to ice. Since then, I dress up as a cockatoo and fight crime, wherever - and whenever - it may be. (Yes, I travel through time.)

I'm feeling peculiar today. Maybe Uncle S. will give you a better answer. OR MAYBE IT WILL BE WORSE.

This is a very simple one. 2005 is the year of hating squirrels and next year is the year of hating Göran Persson.

I thought every year was the year of hating Goeran?
