They just don't get it

God forgive me for the uncharitable thoughts I have about the makers of Big Brother. They've now put Golden Tickets into KitKats in an all-too-obvious echo of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. They're soooooooo postmodern they probably haven't even read the book. Anyone who gets such a ticket would do well to heed the warnings of the elderly members of the Bucket family:

‘Beastly girl,’ said Grandma Josephine
‘Despicable!’ said Grandma Georgina. ‘She’ll come to a sticky end one day, chewing all that chewing gum, you see if she doesn’t.’
‘And who got the fourth Golden Ticket?’ Charlie asked
‘Now let me see’ said Mr Bucket, peering at the newspaper again. ‘Ah yes, here we are. The fourth Golden Ticket’ he read ‘was found by a boy called Mike Teavee’
‘Another bad lot, I’ll be bound,’ muttered Grandma Georgina.
