Before yet another Independence Day ends, I figured I’d disperse a little random 4th of July history. Today I saw an episode of Warehouse 13 in which a character named “Alice” said “Curiouser and Curiouser”. The “Alice” in this episode was the one created by Lewis Carroll, but of course with a “Warehouse 13” twist on the story. I wondered to myself where that phrase came from. I hear it every once in a while and I wasn’t sure what movie or show it originated from so I looked it up. It was first introduced in Lewis Carroll’s novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland which was published on July 4, 1865. I have seen the movie representation of “Alice in Wonderland” in so many different forms and version yet I did not remember that line. I’m sure I’ve heard it a ridiculous amount of times and never realized that Alice herself was the first one to say it.
That’s my random bit of info for the day!
