Oompa Loompa Doompity-dee
When I'm-a drinking, I have to pee
Oompa Loompa Doompity-doo
When I'm not careful I step in poo

Oompa Loompa Doompity-die
Being a midget is making me cry
Oompa Loompa Doompity-death
I get all crazy while doing meth

What do I get when I'm doing this dance?
I took some Ex-lax and pooped in my pants
Why do we hop skip and jump all around
Because of the Bath Salts that we have just found

Oompa Loompa Doompity-dell
Most of us midgets are going to hell
Oompa Loompa Doompity-dong
Why are you reading this stupid song?

Yeah.. never fully trusted Wonka. Single guy living with little orange dudes. Plus, always made me cautious how he “invited” children to his “Wonka factory”. Seemed a little psychotic with his, “YOU GET NOTHING!” rant, too. /s

That song is soooo.....wrong!

There not midgets, they’re “little people”

Just because they do meth and poop in their pants is no reason to insult them :^)

But you gotta admit it's not terribly endearing.

I’m surprised that the BBC is racist enough to call them Oompa-Loompas.

When there is a crime wave of exclusively Pakistanis, they call them “Asians”, to confuse them in the public mind with an enormous number of hard working, peaceful people from Asia.

So what euphemism should they use for Oompa-Loompas, that would conceal that they are Oompa-Loompas?

Oompa-Loompas come from Loompaland, which is a region of Loompa, a small isolated area in West Africa. So therefore, the BBC should call them “Africans”. But that sounds even more racist.

Maybe “southern hemispherians”.

Oh, gosh, Hershey Park. Actually I have a funny story about Hershey Park (well, I find it funny). My son was about three years old and having a good time. A huge Hershey kiss (some person in a silver, hershey kiss costume) walks up to him and tries to give him a hug. All of a sudden, you see these little arms just a ‘swinging at that Hershey kiss. Poor kid was fighting for his life! The Hershey kiss tried to back off.. but no, more little guy swings! We had to pull him off the hershey kiss. My husband apologized to the “person in the suit”. I was laughing so hard that I couldn’t breathe. He switched from hershey kisses as his favorite candy to peppermint patties that very day.

Wrong and wrong. . . . . .

They are "Gravitationally Challenged People"

I once got a call at work from a guy working on a project for Hershey. Said his name was Bill Kiss. I almost hung up on him, thinking it was a prank call. He was for real and they did buy some control equipment.

They should be easy to find.

Is this a Monty Python skit?
