The Wizard of Odd

August this year marks the seventieth year of the release of The Wizard of Oz and the internet is stuffed full to overflowing with homages to the (admittedly magnificent) movie. So, here is a slightly different take on the subject. Instead of the movie itself this concentrates on the fans and the extremes to which they will go to commemorate all things Wiz. Many men in dresses appear within - be warned!

From the article:
Staying with science fiction for a moment, it only takes imagination and a working knowledge of Photoshop to bring the mix right up to date. Although the Star Wars films and Oz have one thing in common - they gainfully employed large numbers of small people - there is little doubt who would win in a Vader/Munchkin duel. The Munchkins, of course. Those lollipop boys are deadly with a stick of candy.
