This is me, looking for a cup at the tea party with my mother playing all the other looney creatures in the books.

Which Alice in Wonderland character are YOU?
created with
You scored as Alice

You scored Alice! You are kind-hearted and curious and give yourself very good advice, but seldom follow it, which leads you into trouble. You always try to be courteous and polite, but you become cross when people speak in nonsense to you and scold them sharply.





A Playing Card


Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum


March Hare


The Dormouse


Queen of Hearts




Cheshire Cat






Mad Hatter




The White Rabbit

I can tell you which Alice in Wonderland character I'm not. I'm not one of the detestable, Americanised Disney versions, that's what, such as you've posted here. Give me Tenniel's originals any day.

I rather fancied being the Cheshire Cat, disappearing from the tail up and leaving a large smile. I have never forgiven Disney for what they did to Winnie the Pooh. While I'm on a roll, that last 'Wind in the Willows' with Mat Lucas and Bob Hoskins was crap.

Cazzie!!! said...

I got the same score as you adn the same cool is that :)

JahTeh said...

Only the best for us Cazzie but I'd still rather be the Cheshire Cat, he has the best lines in the book.

Interestingly, back in Lewis Carroll's day, a 'Cheshire Cat' wasn't exactly a cat. It was a name given to, shall we say, the sort of women that the good reverend himself shouldn't have been visiting. (And no I don't mean little girls...although he probably shouldn't have been visiting them either.) Bit of an odd phrase for a vicar to use in a children's book really.
Having said that, it's not as bad as where the name Chitty Chitty Bang Bang came from...and it wasn't the sound of the car's engine neither.

Lord Sedgwick said...

FYI Lord Scrofulous of Fylde's Green, "chitty chitty bang bang" WAS the sound heard emanating from a car, to wit the rumble seat. (Sounded eerily like the word verification for this comment, "bdmnspm" followed hastily by the thoughtful question, "did the shock absorbers move for you too?"

Brian Hughes said...

Sadly, Sedgers, you're wrong. The reality is considerately fruitier. The phrase 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' originates from Ian Flemming's time in the armed services when sailors would embark on shore leave with their 'chitties' only to be greeted by oriental ladies of the night/mid-afternoon/early morning (depending on time of said shoreleave) standing on the quayside and asking that all important question:'Chitty? Chitty? Bang? Bang?'

Weird, but apparently true...and once again, on reflection, not perhaps the most appropriate choice for a kiddies' story.

Then there's the name of the pop group Scissor Sisters...but that one doesn't need too much literary knowledge...

JahTeh said...

Thank you Lord Hughes of Fleetwood, right on the button as usual, I knew I should have been the Cheshire Cat. And how do you know so much about the mating habits of the British Navy? Or the soliciting habits of the oriental ladies?

'Allo Sedgers, keyboard back in working order I see. No trouble here with comments although I think the trouble at CameraFace's blog was more you having your hands full.

"And how do you know so much about the mating habits of the British Navy? Or the soliciting habits of the oriental ladies?"

The standard of documentaries on the BBC has fallen considerably in the last few years...despite predictions by scholars that such an event would be impossible.

I am the bloody walrus...thats just great...

Maria said...

I scored as the Cheshire Cat!

Alice, Dormouse and Walrus as close and equal seconds.

The Oyster was the one I was least like.
