Loneliness Dream
George George is not lonely during the novel, as he has Lennie. He will be lonely afterwards, without his best friend. George and Lennie share a dream – to own a little patch of land and live on it in freedom. He is so set on the idea that he even knows of some land that he thinks they could buy.
Lennie Lennie is the only character who is innocent enough not to fear loneliness, but he is angry when Crooks suggests George won’t come back to him. George and Lennie share a dream – to own a little patch of land and live on it in freedom. Lennie’s main desire is to tend the soft-haired rabbits they will keep.
Curley’s wife She is married to a man she doesn’t love and who doesn’t love her. There are no other women on the ranch and she has nothing to do. She tries to befriend the men by hanging round the bunkhouse. She dreams of being a movie star. Her hopes were raised by a man who claimed he would take her to Hollywood, but when she didn’t receive a letter from him, she married Curley.
Candy When Candy’s ancient, ill dog was shot, Candy has nothing left. He delayed killing the dog, even though he knew deep down that it was the best thing, as he dreaded losing his long-time companion. Candy joins George and Lennie’s plan of owning a piece of land. His savings make the dream actually possible to achieve.
Crooks Crooks lives in enforced solitude, away from the other men. He is bitter about being a back-busted nigger. He is thrilled when Lennie and Candy come into his room and are his companions for a night. Crooks dreams of being seen as equal to everyone else. He knows his civil rights. He remembers fondly his childhood, when he played with white children who came to his family’s chicken ranch, and longs for a similar relationship with white people again.

 

Animal Jokes! HA! HA! HA!

VAMPIRE BAT

A vampire bat came flapping in from the night covered in fresh blood and parked himself on the roof of the cave to get some sleep.

Pretty soon all the other bats smelled the blood and began hassling him about where he got it.

He told them to go away and let him get some sleep but they persisted until finally he gave in.
“OK, follow me” he said and flew out of the cave with hundreds of bats behind him.

Down through the valley they went, across a river and into a forest full of trees.

Finally he slowed down and all the other bats excitedly milled around him.



“Now, do you see that tree over there?” he asked.
“Yes, Yes, Yes!” the bats all screamed in a frenzy.”Good” said the bat, “Because I sure as hell didn’t!”
