(( I was actually talking to my mum about how the makeup on Jim Carrey is almost too good in the ASoUE film, but then I thought about it for a while and I realised why they did it.
Because in the books, the eventual revelation that most of the adults were volunteers and thus went to school together, knew each other personally, and received the same disguise training, creates one of the biggest and most annoying plot holes in the entire series, namely how the fuck did Monty and Josephine not immediately recognise Olaf through his terrible half-assed disguises.
If the disguises are actually half decent, you can realistically believe that they don’t recognise him while also believing that the kids still would.
That’s another thing about the ASoUE film- for all its flaws and departures from book canon ( there are so many ) they at least attempted to retcon everything in a way that made the first 3 books fit in with the myth arc without creating ginormous continuity errors. ))
Mr Poe in literally every single book: What are you talking about children your new guardian looks nothing like Count Olaf he’s wearing glasses.
Proof that readers can be certain that Olaf was a member of VFD.

(( dr-alfred-heimer and I were discussing the possibility of doing some IC riff commentary things and I think if I did one on this blog, I would totally do it on the South African Fan Sequel because that shit was golden ))
Oh, look! I appear to have gotten some new followers overni-
That sounds like something Count Olaf would say.
I was reading The Wide Window for the millionth time and paying closer attention to the little details than I did in the past. Anyways, I just realized that, assuming Ike and Josephine share a last name, his name would be “Ike Anwhistle.”
"I can whistle."
