From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
This chapter is so very Roald Dahl and so very Willy Wonka that we don't want to spoil even one ounce of it. It's very short and it involves a crazy Willy Wonka, a pretty good pun, and some drunk Oompa-Loompas. It doesn't affect the plot of the story, but it's well worth reading. As Mr. Wonka says at the end of the chapter, "You just wait and see" (23.27).
