Wizard of Oz

Take Two: Given a second chance, how would this be different? Rewrite the ending to a book, movie, scene, fable, quote, etc.

Write an alternate ending to The Wizard of Oz.

We Have a Winner!! 01/13/10
Dorothy stays in Oz and becomes the new Wizard and finds a fashion coordinator to get her out of that babyish gingham dress! Toto, the ugliest dog in both the fantasy and real worlds, goes back to Kansas with the former Wizard/Professor and annoys the old lady on the bicycle to death. The Prof goes back on the road selling snake oil and illusion. The scarecrow, lion, and tin man open a restaurant in Munchkinland and make a fortune. The flying monkeys and those big ugly soldiers wipe each other out in a battle of who gets the castle. Auntie Em and Uncle Henry struggle to survive without their farm hands, finally give up and sell their farm to a real estate developer and move to Hawaii! And they all live happily ever after.
Winner: Mellodee
Reason: An alternate plan for everyone!

Dorothy marries the tin man and lives happily ever after. Toto and the Lion take on the monkeys, win control of the castle, and everyone goes to live there whilst Oz itself is bulldozed to get rid of the sharp edges everywhere which represent a litigation risk.

It's all rebuilt along the lines of the Tripods, and is really rather groovy.

Auntie Em starts raising poppies. She figures it's a safer bet than another tornado, either of which will get her to Oz.

Her heels didn't click (so I'm told).
Instead, Dorothy got bold.
To Tin Man, her plea
Was, "Please marry me!
You do have a heart, made of gold."
