"Oompa Loompa, do-ba-dee-doo, I’ve got a perfect puzzle for you." The 1971 film "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" is considered one of the classic movie musicals. Oompa Loompas tainted their reputation when three British men physically attacked a 28-year-old man dressed up as Willy Wonka's famous midget-sized factory workers, according to a Jan. 28 UPI report.
British police said they arrested three suspects for attacking a man around 3:30 a.m. last month. However, the British press only picked up the odd news story on Monday. Law enforcement is still looking for a fourth suspect and say that two individuals were dressed as Oompa Loompas when the attack took place.
Was the assault part of some "Jackass" gig? Who knows. Local police are still gathering details on the strange incident which took place in the town of Norwich. The arrested men are either teenagers or in their 20s and were charged with grievous bodily harm, according to the Norfolk Eastern Daily Press.
"Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" has an 89 percent approval rating from movie site rottentomatoes.com and is based on Roald Dahl's book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".
Ironically, the actions of the thugs dressed up as Oompa Loompas don't match the lyrics of their songs and will have to account for their behavior in jail:
Oompa Loompa do-ba-dee-da,
Given good manners you will go far.
You will live in happiness too,
Like the oompa loompa do-ba-dee-doo.
