    How do u even catch a piranha? You’d think they would chew the line they were caught on or chew thru a net.

    What would L. Frank Baum have thought of there being Imogene the cow? Ludicrous I’d say.

    Of course, the dog lovers lobby was too influential.

    Per Wikipedia: This stage version opened in Chicago in 1902 (the first to use the shortened title “The Wizard of Oz”), then ran on Broadway for 293 stage nights from January to October 1903. … The stage version differed quite a bit from the book, and was aimed primarily at adults. Toto was replaced with Imogene the Cow, and Tryxie Tryfle (a waitress) and Pastoria (a streetcar operator) were added as fellow cyclone victims. The Wicked Witch of the West was eliminated entirely in the script, and the plot became about how the four friends were allied with the usurping Wizard and were hunted as traitors to Pastoria II, the rightful King of Oz.

    Upper-class women in early 19th century Greece often used empty pistachio shells as artificial fingernails.

    They should’ve gotten Dorothy a snake. Then the wicked witch would say, “I’ll get you my pretty, and your little snake too.”

    Take care and may God bless.

    I’m having a lot of trouble with this cow thing. It’s like my entire childhood was an enormous lie. It’s like learning that Jack Nicholson is Santa Claus.

    It’s too bad they switched out that cow for a yappy dog. I’m okay with dogs, but a pet cow in that story sounds nice.

    Kind of like the original ending of Little Shop of Horrors (1986) because it didn’t go over well with preview audiences.

    Original ending:

    I assume they chose a cow simply because cows are big enough for humans in costume.

    When casting the 1939 movie they tried to get Imogene into the handbasket but Judy was too weak so they had to settle for a dog…
