Just watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and spotted something I've never noticed before.

Grandpa Joe and the 3 other old people are clearly bed-ridden and unable to help Charlie's mum as she works her fingers to the bone in order to support her dirt poor patriarch-devoid household, even down to the point where Charlie gives his paper round money over in order to buy bread. However, when Charlie finds the last ticket and tells them all, Grandpa Joe is suddenly miraculously healed to the point where he can dance a ****ing jig!!!!!! What exactly has that lazy shite pensioner been up to all these years? Lying in bed pretending he can't work while getting waited on hand and foot, that's what! It wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't all part of some elaborate benefit fraud, although if that's the case then where has all the money been going? Grandpa Joe is a shining beacon of what is wrong with this country.
