But You Were Up to Your Old Tricks In Chapters 4, 5, & 6

Welcome to Choose and Defend Wednesday, hot and fresh :)  Since I asked you about television a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd try some literature today.  You know, mix it up.  Then since there needs to be two choices, I needed to think of two things that most people would have read (or at least encountered by cultural osmosis) that had something similar about them, yet something very different.  It is a process, people! 

Here is what I have for you.  Would you rather be a character and live in the world of...

Winnie the Pooh

Wizard of Oz

Think it over.  Put yourself in the stories and decide where you'd rather hang out....FOREVER.  Choose and then Defend your choice to us...your judges.  J/K, no judging here.  We just like to watch.  Choose and Defend!

Pooh Corner! They are all benign characters, versus some sinister types in Oz. Frankly, that movie creeps me out a little.

I second Pooh Corner! Never seen the Wizard of OZ and they look a bit scary. Much rather hang with Tigger, Pooh, Kanga and Zoo!

Ali said...

BTW--Ali is Alice!

Alice in Wonderland has always kind of frightened me since my childhood, so yep it's Pooh Corner for me too.

Whoever said they've never seen Wizard of Oz please please please do yourself a favor and watch it. Such a fantastic movie.

And since everyone wants to live in Pooh Corner, I'm going to be a rebel and say I'd live in Oz. Yeah, it's crazy there and kind of creepy but I think I'd fit in quite well...especially with all those Munchkin's running around. ;)

Put me in the 100 Acre Wood please!
I couldn't take those flying monkeys.

Pooh Pooh!
Thankfully you didn't make me choose between Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz.

Secret: Yes, I think the world of Pooh is much calmer than the world of Oz. One for Winnie the Pooh.

Ali: Hi!!! How have you never seen the Wizard of Oz? You must. But I still like your reason :) Two for Winnie the Pooh.

FW: See what you did there? Confused one scary thing with another. I totally get it. Three for Winnie the Pooh.

Silver: haha! Awesome! Always enjoy a rebel...even a small one :) One for Wizard of Oz.

Silly: Yes, a rabbit might not be safe around flying monkeys! Four for Winnie the Pooh.

NoRegrets: Aw, yeah, that would have been a different sort of contest. Like, which freak flag you flyin'? Five for Winnie the Pooh.

Everyone: This is a warm and quiet group thus far, with 5-1 choosing the world of Winnie the Pooh over the more raucous world of the Wizard of Oz. Anyone else have some deep feelings about this topic? Lay them on us.
