Aussie sniper in the Pacific, 1944.
I know y’all did not read the books but Roald Dahl talks about this in the book. Charlie’s teacher points out the fact that unless you buy a shit ton of bars you’re probably not gonna win. Just like the lottery. Just like how all of the other winners of the tickets bought a shit ton of bars. Except Charlie, who just got lucky. And Charlie was originally black. Literally the whole point of the book was that wonka wanted to give the less fortunate a fair opportunity and it wasn’t fair because the system isn’t fair.
Stop the car.
Charlie was originally black?!?!
He was and Mr. Dahl was forced to make him white. Also his widow has spoken and confirmed that as well.
Could someone please torch Simon Phillip Cowel‘s yacht?
So the cover of my first forthcoming Osprey book is now out! I even got an (artistically tendered) cameo!
