Rabbit Hole Insiders will recall that Wizzo bought a bunch of stuff from ABC Television that had been part of the TV show, LOST!
The Pirates of the Voyager, organized by Michele Miller and led triumphantly by Kyle Cease, Ze Frank and Mark “Crop Circles” Fox were awarded 5-inch wide/6-foot long strips of the silk balloon that “Henry Gale” (A.K.A. Ben Linus) supposedly used to get to the island.
These strips can be worn as a headband, a scarf, a tie, a belt or a sash. They are the unique identifier of a tribe of adults that have been to the islands of Neverland, Oz, Narnia, The Three-Acre Wood, Middle Earth and Wizard Academy. These are silken helmets of Mambrino, available only to fearless adventurers who have challenged windmills and survived to tell the tale.
Don’t worry, we have one for you.
What you’re going to do to earn it has yet to be decided…
From Wizzo’s Cliff Claven treasure trove of useless trivia: Ben Linus was posing as Henry Gale, a man who was blown to the island in a storm. This is a direct nod to The Wizard of Oz. The Wizard was blown to Oz when his balloon came untethered at a county fair in Kansas, remember?
And Dorothy’s guardians were “Auntie Em” and “Uncle Henry” Gale. In the video below, we hear the soon-to-come Lion, Scarecrow and Tin Man refer to Auntie Em as “Mrs. Gale.”
