Candy, Charlie, and Dad: karik evayna Violet Beauregarde should've won Wonka's chocolate factory Have I watched the movie in the last decade or more? No. Do I have iron clad evidence to support my argument? Yes. 1. She's the most knowledgeable about candy She's committed to it, and knows her stuff. When Wonka holds up a little yellow piece across the room, she recognizes it immediately. She was able to switch to candy bars for the sake of the contest, so we know she has personal discipline and is goal oriented. Also, two major projects play directly into her strong suits: the 3-course- meal gum that Wonka failed to make safe (gum) and the neverending gobstopper (longevity) 2. She's the most fit to run a business. Violet is competitive, determined, hard working, and willing to take risks. Her father is a small town car salesman and politician, so she could easily pick up knowledge and support from him. (Veruca's dad is also a business man, and in a compatible market (nuts), but it's made very clear that Veruca has no respect or knowledge of business practices or hard work.) 3. Shes the most sympathetic to the Oompa Loompas. She critiques Veruca when Veruca demands to buy one. More importantly, Wonka has been testing the 3-course-meal gum that always goes wrong' on Oompa Loompas while he presumably just watches. Violet is ready to put herself on the front line, instead of treating the Oompa Loompas as disposable, and would therefore be a better boss. 4. Her personality flaw' is the most fitting for the company. In the moralizing Oompa Loompa song, they just say gum is pretty cool, but it's not socially acceptable to chew it all day. The thing is, we already know that she can stop if she wants, because she already did that to win the golden ticket. And yeah, she is defensive about the perceived impoliteness of her hobby (like when her mother tries to shame her about her habit during a televised interview) but the obsession with candy and neglect of social norms is EXACTLY what Wonka is all about This is on brand. 5. Her misstep in the factory is reasonable. Wonka shows everyone a candy he's very proud of. Violet is like "oh sick, that's gum, my special interest." Wonka is then pulls a "WRONG! It's amazing guml So in the very moments before she takes the gum Wonka has mislead her just to belittle her. So when he's like I wouldn't do that" why should she give a shit what he has to say? She's not like Charlie over here who's al Sure Gramps, let's stay behind while the tour leaves and secretly drink this thing that has been explicitly stated to fill you with gas and is too powerful for safe consumption, oh and also I just saw what happened to Violet so I actually KNOW what this stuff can be capable of" Also, Violet is not selfish about her experience, she tells everyone what she's tasting and feeling, and everyone is eager to hear it.

Veruca destroys and disrupts the workspace. Mike knows exactly what will happen to him and transports/shrinks himself deliberately. Violet had no idea what the gum could potentially do to her, and caused no harm to anyone or anything but herself Lastly: Can you imagine Charlie filling Wonka's shoes? That passive, naive boy? Violet is already basically Wonka. She's passionate sarcastic, candy-obsessed, free thinking, and a total firecracker. She's even better than Wonka, because she doesn't endanger others.

 Violet Beauregarde
 should've won Wonka's
 chocolate factory
 Have I watched the movie in the last decade
 or more? No.
 Do I have iron clad evidence to support my
 argument? Yes.
 1. She's the most knowledgeable about candy
 She's committed to it, and knows her stuff. When
 Wonka holds up a little yellow piece across the
 room, she recognizes it immediately. She was
 able to switch to candy bars for the sake of the
 contest, so we know she has personal discipline
 and is goal oriented. Also, two major projects
 play directly into her strong suits: the 3-course-
 meal gum that Wonka failed to make safe (gum)
 and the neverending gobstopper (longevity)
 2. She's the most fit to run a business. Violet
 is competitive, determined, hard working, and
 willing to take risks. Her father is a small town
 car salesman and politician, so she could easily
 pick up knowledge and support from him.
 (Veruca's dad is also a business man, and in
 a compatible market (nuts), but it's made very
 clear that Veruca has no respect or knowledge of
 business practices or hard work.)
 3. Shes the most sympathetic to the Oompa
 Loompas. She critiques Veruca when Veruca
 demands to buy one. More importantly, Wonka
 has been testing the 3-course-meal gum that
 always goes wrong' on Oompa Loompas while
 he presumably just watches. Violet is ready to
 put herself on the front line, instead of treating
 the Oompa Loompas as disposable, and would
 therefore be a better boss.
 4. Her personality flaw' is the most fitting for
 the company. In the moralizing Oompa Loompa
 song, they just say gum is pretty cool, but it's
 not socially acceptable to chew it all day. The
 thing is, we already know that she can stop if

 norms is EXACTLY what Wonka is all about
 This is on brand.
 5. Her misstep in the factory is reasonable.
 Wonka shows everyone a candy he's very proud
 of. Violet is like "oh sick, that's gum, my special
 interest." Wonka is then pulls a "WRONG! It's
 amazing guml So in the very moments before
 she takes the gum Wonka has mislead her just

 Had to go research this thing, and the answer
 to what to do if it stings you is scream.
 from Wikipedia-
 "One researcher described the pain a
 immediate, excruciating, unrelenting pain
 that simply shuts down one's ability to do
 anything, except scream. Mental discipline
 simply does not work in these situations.
 In terms of scale, the wasp's sting is rated
 near the top of the Schmidt sting pain index,
 second only to that of the bullet ant, and is
 described by Schmidt as "blinding, fierce [and]
 shockingly electric"."
 momma-crow
 Soooooo..dissociate to escape or?

 It's laying eggs in you.

 Let's back up a second and fully appreciate
 that description
 The Schmidt sting pain index, a widely
 used classification system for the bites and
 stings of ants, bees and wasps, is literally
 the personal ranking system of a guy named
 Justin Schmidt, who goes around letting bugs
 sting him for science. Like, that's this Thing as
 a scientist
 In one entry, he describes the sting of the
 common bee as "almost pleasant, [likel a
 lover just bit your earlobe a little too hard.
 In another, the sting of the yellowjacket
 is described as "hot and smoky, almost
 irreverent. Imagine W. C. Fields extinguishing
 a cigar on your tongue."
 So when the Schmidt sting pain index
 characterises the sting of the tarantula hawk
 as "blinding, fierce [and] shockingly electric"
 well, now you know what your standard for
 comparison is!
