vernonFL: Dorothy killed 2 people and used heroin in the original movie.
Fell In Love With a Chair: Having read Wicked and its sequels... yeah. Might as well go ahead and throw the R-rating on there now while there's still time./Dunno if the musical is anything like the books
Richard_The_Clown: Fell In Love With a Chair: Having read Wicked and its sequels... yeah. Might as well go ahead and throw the R-rating on there now while there's still time./Dunno if the musical is anything like the booksNo nothing at all. The musical is closer to MGM's Oz than it is to the novel. The book was just dreary, no fun at all. The musical I thought was much better./read the book before I saw the musical...
Sybarite: Wait until they find out about the crazed candy factory owner who enslaves as entire race, forces them to work in self-evidently unsafe conditions, then systematically tortures children he considers "bad" in front of their parents.
Optimal_Illusion: i recently had this comment sent to me on FaceBook: It's the ultimate Chick Flick, two women are willing to kill each other over a pair of shoes.More people need to read the actual series. It's way more trippier than what the current Pop Culture at large believes it to be.I did read "Wicked" because a relative recommended it, I liked it okay, but felt the book was lacking something, and seemed like it was more for working out the author's hang-ups. This is coming from someone who enjoyed the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant.
Tonight: Angela Davis teams up with a scarecrow pedophile, a steampunk jazzman and the Lion of Judah to get the hell back to Brooklyn. And there's a dog too.

GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: The whole invisible bears thing may be some of the greatest nightmare fuel in a children's book that I have ever read.
bass555: something something flying monkeys
Good Behavior Day: A naval officer from Austria deflowers a nun while turning down a solid job offer from Hitler./Sound of Music
Zap_Rowsdower: First of all, this description has been floating around for decades.Secondly, everyone should read the books. My favorite was the one where the heroes found an entire civilization made out of living sentient wood - wooden creatures, landscapes, buildings - all alive and talking. The wooden people objected to the party traveling through their land, so how do our heroes respond? They burn the whole farking civilization to the ground and go merrily on their way. Dorothy (or one of the other little girls that feature in the series - I forget) commits genocide to remove a minor obstacle from her path.
Cagey B: GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: The whole invisible bears thing may be some of the greatest nightmare fuel in a children's book that I have ever read.I'm personally fond of the Tin Woodman finding out that his various former parts have been combined with other body parts laying around to form an ornery flesh golem.

kim jong-un: The book (Wicked), was horrible. It was painful to read, unnecessarily vulgar and cruel. The musical took the concept of the book, and turned it into something pretty interesting and enjoyable.
FirstNationalBastard: vernonFL: Dorothy killed 2 people and used heroin in the original movie.Let's not forget how she blew all the Munchkins after they had all pulled an anal train on her.
Slaves2Darkness: You did not, nobody enjoys the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Anybody that claims to is just delusional that is like saying you finished Atlas Shrugged.
