“One person's craziness is another person's reality.”
Tim Burton

“Everything in this room is edible. Even I'm edible. But, that would be called canibalism. It is looked down upon in most societies.”
Tim Burton, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

“Stick Boy liked Match Girl,
He liked her a lot.
He liked her cute figure,
he thought she was hot.

But could a flame ever burn
for a match and a stick?
It did quite literally;
he burned up quick.”
Tim Burton, The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories
