Oompa loompa, dooptity dooo, we’ve got another riddle for you: Why did a couple of rabid Oompa-Loompas a la Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory assault a 28-year-old British man in Norwich?
The answer isn’t clear, but if we were to judge from the Robot Chicken video below, maybe the Oompa-Loompas are experiencing a sort of post-traumatic stress disorder after the abuse they’ve experienced from Wonka?
Apparently, two men dressed up like the allegedly fictional characters were gallivanting around two with two normally dressed people and attacked the man in the early morning hours on Thursday.
“Two of the males were dressed as Oompa-Loompas from [the Roald Dahl book] Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with painted orange faces and dyed green hair and were wearing hooped tops,” said Norfolk police.
Obviously, it’s a tragedy that this man was beat down, but why is everyone assuming that Oompa-Loompas don’t exist and don’t have a bone to pick with all the Wangdoodles, Hornswogglers, and Snozzwangers of the world?
