Glinda’s the real ‘witch’ in Oz

March 22, 2008 at 3:52 PM (Uncategorized) (, , )

So, TCM has the Wizard of Oz on now…

And I’m a cynic.

There were *already* two good witches available in Oz before the twister dropped the sepia  toned house into Technicolor Oz. (We never see or hear of a good Witch in the South, but…logic would suggest she exists)

Glinda is obviously spending too much time in front of her mirror to bother to kick TWWoTEast’s butt.  She could have *done* it obviously…But she’s been too busy admiring herself to care about the little people…But a mortal girl and a yappy dog…She sees them as the perfect answer (along with a sack of staw, a tin can, and a loopy lion.).

Glinda:  “I’m not going to *tell* her that all she needs to do is touch her heels three times to get back to Kansas: one accidental death isn’t enough…at least not until she’s handled that uppity green broomrider for me….  Spells, truly terrifying flying monkey’s and those guards in the fake Russian outfits…I might muss my hair.  Or heavens! I could lose my crown!  Not about to take on the Western Witch…no siree.  The girl’s a foreigner. An illegal immigrant.  She won’t be missed.  And what dreadful hair!

(though, distantly from Kansas, I heard her voice, and I’m dying of jealousy over it…Best she go down fighting like a hero…)

I can send her to that useless Wizard. Maybe he’ll occupy himself with her problems and stop pestering me to hook up.
