So i am really into Alice in wonderland at the moment!
I have had discussions with many a friend to discover the answer to the hatters riddle of 'why is a raven like a writing desk?' and i have come to 3 conclusions :)
1) they can both take you somewhere, a raven can fly and there for can take you places and on a writing desk you can write things that take you anywhere you like.
2) the both produce a few notes that are flat. the ravens song is very flat and tuneless and on a writing desk you can makes notes on paper that is flat
and 3 which is my personal favourite
3) there is actually no meaning to this riddle and was created to give a sence of how strange wonderland is, who could a raven which is a bird ever be anything like a writing desk which is a piece of furnature...
A little rhyme from the original disney film and the book has stuck in my mind..
How doth the little crocodile
improve his shining tail
and pour the water of the nile
on every golden scale
How cheerfully he seems to grin
how neatly spread his claws
and laws the little fishes in
with gently smiling jaws.
somethims i like to believe as many as 6 impossible things before breakfast!
1 there's a potion that can make you shrink
2 and a cake that can make you grow
3 animals can talk
4 cats can disappear
5 there's a place called wonderland
6 i can slay the jabberwokky!
don't be scared to be yourself! smile!!
