Here’s A Random, Funny, And Terrible Thing In “Willy Wonka” That You Can Never Unsee

As everyone knows, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is not only a great movie, but also an iconic staple of most people's childhoods.

In fact, I'm willing to bet you've seen the movie enough times that you could easily sing along to one or two or ALL of the songs, right?

I mean, who HASN'T wanted to quench their post-song thirst with some tea/nectar/candy water and an edible tulip cup?!

And try lickable wallpaper and fizzy lifting drink, and, you know, OWN YOUR OWN FUCKING MAGICAL CANDY FACTORY!!!

But, there's one kinda fucked up thing (besides, you know, almost killing children) in the movie you may have never noticed.

And, like, I get it because...SAME?

I mean, let's be real, getting your hands on a brand new Scrumdiddlyumptious bar would 100% be worth it.

I know I'd happily take a formica love tap to the chin for the chance.
