About the Site

Hi! I'm Owen Winkler, and I write this drivel. This blog is about my own life and my random observations thereof. Sometimes I write about technical stuff here, but mostly that's at RedAlt. Please enjoy, or if not, click on my ads. Either is fine with me.

Alternate spellings of Oompa-Loompa

Wow, what a hot topic. If you’ve never read or seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, then you probably have no idea of what I’m speaking.

Oompa-Loompas are these little orange men in white overalls and green hair that perform labor in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory.

Oh, forget it. Here’s the alternate spellings:

  • Oompa-loompa
  • Umpa-lumpa
  • Oompah-loompah
  • Umpah-lumpah

Gee, what a revelation. Four whole alternate spellings. And it took me how long to write this page?
