What did the Winkies eat? Who had to sweep up the Horse of a Different Color's poop? Was Aunt Em into fisting? How did the Munchkins manage their economy? Did the Scarecrow have genitalia? Why the hell was Professor Marvel all the way out in the middle of the Kansas prairie? How did they make those tall towers in the Emerald City entirely out of emerald? Were the Flying Monkeys appreciative of the many and storied accomplishments of Heath Ledger? Why did the Wicked Witch of the East wear striped socks that clashed with her ruby slippers? How did the coroner have enough time to thoroughly examine the WW of the E during the first part of that song?
Gee, I just have SO many questions! Fortunately they're all super-interesting!
Well, OP, you've pretty well summed up what DL has become.
What did the Winkies eat?
People in OZ don't eat. They don't age either, nor do they die, except in accidents.
Who had to sweep up the Horse of a Different Color's poop?
No food, nothing to expel
Was Aunt Em into fisting?
No she wasn't peverted.
How did the Munchkins manage their economy?
Did the Scarecrow have genitalia?
No just straw.
Why the hell was Professor Marvel all the way out in the middle of the Kansas prairie?
It was the depression. Whenever you see something in a 1930s that makes no sense, the answer is always, it was the Great Depression
How did they make those tall towers in the Emerald City entirely out of emerald?
Enslaved population. Just get me 25,000 Hebrews and I'll show you a thing or two.
Were the Flying Monkeys appreciative of the many and storied accomplishments of Heath Ledger?
No, the monkeys were too busy spreading AIDS into the human population.
Why did the Wicked Witch of the East wear striped socks that clashed with her ruby slippers?
She was a straight man in reality.
How did the coroner have enough time to thoroughly examine the WW of the E during the first part of that song?
He was a bad coroner.
No, silly. The towers weren't made of emerald. They were a standard reinforced concrete with curtain wall. The better buildings were coated with tourmaline dust. The lesser ones were often just green glass. Eventually, we all got so sick of green we could puke. If we ate. Which we didn't. So we didn't. But we felt like it.
[quote]How did the Munchkins manage their economy? Doughnut sales
Uh, no. Obviously they sold lollipops and other confections. Why do you think the Lollipop Guild got such a prominent bit in the "We welcome you to Munchkinland" number?
You can't manage an entire economy on sweets. In any case, it doesn't answer the question.
They were an egalitarian cooperative, OP. In many ways they had the communist paradise that Karl Marx dreamed about. Of course, it was on a very small scale. The whole thing fell apart when the Mayor was duped by some real estate mogul from E.C. and started building modernist housing blocks. They used appliances from E.C. and the Munchkins couldn't reach the buttons and fell into the toilets. The project bankrupted the Land. Most of them now work in Emerald City where they are undocumented but tolerated because they work hard for low pay.
An entrepreneur bought up property in Munchkinland and is restoring the place to be some kind of theme park. It will have actual Munchkins pretending to live in old Munchkinland. Kind of like your Colonial Williamsburg.
R5 put me in the floor. W&W, please!
The lollipop guild sold doughnuts, the lollipops were just code for other deviant activities, that the Munchkins engaged in.
Uncle Henry was Dorothy's blood relative, but she always cried for Aunt Emmy. This means that in reality, Henry molested Dorothy and her cries for Emmy Jo were reminiscent of Henry's night time raids on her bed.
