  • Pop2it
Rick Polito has been writing off-beat and often hilarious synopses for various movies to be used in TV listings for years. His famous "Wizard of Oz" synopsis, penned for the Marin Independent Journal and named by the La Times as TV Listing of the Week when it was written in 1998, is making the rounds on the interwebs Friday (Oct. 26) thanks to Reddit.

The synopsis reads:

"Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first woman she meets, then teams up with three complete strangers to kill again."

Polito jokes with Jim Romenesko in an interview, "That line is going to follow me to the grave. It was just on Leno, it was a clue in a crossword puzzle, it showed up in Playboy, and people use it as their email sigs. Someday I'm going to walk down the street and see it on a T-shirt and punch the person who's wearing it.
