Did someone say golden ticket?

Did someone say golden ticket?

Just stopped off at the Verizon store, and the staff outnumbered the customers. Guess all the chocolate bars are gone.

But on the drive back, I got to thinking on a tangent, as I will sometimes, about the chocolate bars. And Willy Wonka and the original golden tickets.

So I ask you:

The original is the best by far! " The danger must be growing For the rowers keep on rowing
And they're certainly not showing Any signs that they are slowing.(Roald Dahl)" = the best part.

Now Mike, come on, that's almost insulting. Johnny Depp might be a good actor, but he will never be Gene Wilder. There's simply no comparison.

I agree with you. Give me Wilder every time. I particularly like this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaoySOGlZ_U

The new version was less creepy than I expected it to be, but I still prefer the old one with Wilder.
