Wonka’s factory for me! (The original, please.) With those OompaLoompa’s helping me out and all of Willy’s wacked-out recipes, I’m sure I could come up with a delicious sweet that’s fat and calorie free… I’d open up an amusement park and incorporate factory-rides. People’d pay BIG money to float and then burp and fart to come down, lol. And that psychedelic boat ride?? Puh-lease…..It’d be adults-only with complimentary “special” Wonka Brownies before the ride.

I went with Stark.

Just think, making weapons and bombs, having Robert Downey Jr as my boss (think "benefits") and the pay scale that I know it could be..hell, I could buy all the chocolate I want...don't need Wonka! LOL

Is there really any question?

A freaking jetpack, people.

I think it's a proven fact that if you don't want a jetpack, you are a communist.

Frustrated Inc.

I have always loved David Pirner,,His Mom was LuLu..Right? I remember watching him-back in my drinking days--anyway..I was drunker than a maggot and he was on Unplugged or something and he and his Mom sang "To Sir With Love" and it changed my life...well, at least until I sobered off..

“All you suicide kings and you drama queens, Forever after happily making misery…Did you satisfy your greed? Get what you need? Was it only envy, so empty?”

I would be a part of Frustrated Incorporated (Impossible for me to type out at a normal pace since my head is singing along…frusssssttttrrrraaaaaated Incoooorpoooorated!) Though an overcrowded field, this is one thing I highly doubt the world will ever outgrow, overcome, and it has very little to do with technology thus never being “out dated”.

That’s my answer and I shall stick to it. Wonka factory is very tempting….except I am scared to death of that damn tunnel….
There’s no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There’s no knowing where we’re going
Or which way the wind is blowing
Is it raining? Is it snowing
Is a hurricane a-blowing
Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Oh, the fires of hell are glowing
Is the grisly reaper mowing
Yes! The danger must be growing
For the rowers keep on rowing
And they’re certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing!
Stop the boat!

Wonka's factory, after all, those court cases are gong to go away, they all signed wavers on the way in the door. Not anyone's fault but their own (and thir parents) that they're spoiled little snots! :wink:

One of these businesses can bomb the other three out of existence.

Just throwing that out there.

Chocolate Factory. Here’s why…

1. Oompa-Loompas rock!!!

2. Chocolate is the ultimate aphrodisiac (According to Will Farrell Death holds the #1 spot)

3. Would end hunger forever with the amazing three course meal gum. Would solve the blue berry issue by substituting peach cobbler.

By the way… Don’t touch that squirrel’s nuts! You’ll make him crazy!

I am an industry in my own work . I write so I guess it would be "Frustrated
Incorporated" for me . All the stacks of paper I have it's like" looking for a
needle in the haystack" to find the gold in it.
"The squeeaky wheel gets the grease " I guess I don't squeak too much .
Well that's not all true I do get published a lot , no pay .
Well "Charity begins at home " so it goes .
