trivia 5/30

trivia 5/30
There’s a bizarre theory among fans of Gilligan’s Island: that the island represents hell, and the seven castaways are trapped there because each personifies one of the seven deadly sins. Ginger represents lust because she’s a foxy movie star. Mary Ann is envy because she’s jealous of Ginger’s beauty. The Professor, with his superior intellect, is pride. Mr. Howell, the millionaire, represents greed. Mrs. Howell represents sloth because she’s a work-averse millionaire’s wife. The Skipper is gluttony and anger, a fat guy who always wants more to eat and is always getting mad at Gilligan. Gilligan himself? According to the theory, he represents Satan. (It’s his island, after all.) The proof: He always bungles their plans for escape … because there is no escape from hell. And he always wears red.
