Oompa Loompas Think They're So Smart

Oompa Loompas think they're so smart, just because they get to spend their days mixing whimsical candies and dispensing musical scoldings to unruly youngsters. However, those are only the ones who agreed to indentured servitude under Master Wonka. Back home in Loompaland, they're living in desolation and suffering the predations of Wangdoodles and Vermicious Knids.

If they're so damn clever and wise, why don't they move out of the home country to someplace where they won't get eaten like popcorn by unlikely monsters?
