Madhatter Project

This blog's adopted actor, Johnny Depp, in the earliest released image from Alice in Wonderland, his latest go-round with Tim Burton. The movie also features Alan Rickman, Crispin Glover, Christopher Lee, and of course, Helena Bonham Carter. Depp likes to weave composites into his version of a character. hmmm. I'm seeing some Krusty the Clown, not sure who else. Whaddya think?

Why is a raven like a writing desk?

Poe wrote on both?
They both have inky quills?

According to the wiki on the mad Hatter, this is what the author had to say in 1896:
Enquiries have been so often addressed to me, as to whether any answer to the Hatter’s Riddle can be imagined, that I may as well put on record here what seems to me to be a fairly appropriate answer, viz: "Because it can produce a few notes, though they are very flat; and it is nevar put with the wrong end in front!" This, however, is merely an afterthought; the Riddle as originally invented, had no answer at all.

The misspelling of "nevar" was intentional, as it is "raven" backwards. [reference]
