Default Did you know who the author of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was?

Roald Dahl.

I've spent part of my childhood, teenage years, and college years in SC, yet not once was that fact ever mentioned.

I'm now in Wales, and they have a Roald Dahl Day (because, apparently he was welsh). My mind is blown how popular he is here. It's like Babe Ruth.

Yes - The book was called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Did you know the Roald Dahl was in the British Secret Service and stationed in the US during WW2. His mission was to sway and influence the US towards joining the war on the allied side. Ian Flemming was part of the same group and the the character of James Bond was inspired by Roald Dahl.

Armed with this knowledge, I will make others tremble in fear as they rue the day that this question comes up during a game of Trivial Pursuit. I wish some uppity mother-f**ker would read this question to me.

Right. I'm going on 3 hours of sleep the last two night. I seem to have contracted some super-flu.

Dahl also had a habit of stealing ideas from other people and passing them off as his own and was a very shady businessman. There is an interesting story about his deal with Disney to make Gremlins into a movie but for multiple reasons they were never comfortable doing so. Disney maintained the rights and eventually did things with his works but Dahl was quite the character.
