Here Something New. I Don't Know if This Has Been Previously Discussed But It Is New For Me. But In The First Book, Page 158, It Says This: "The Baudelaire Youngsters Looked Around And Saw That Not Only Had Count Olaf Vanished, But His Accomplices - The Wart Faced Man, The Hook Handed Man, The Man With The Long Nose, etc............................. The Wart Faced Man? I Don't Recall Him In Any Other Books. Do You?

I saw this on a website, but I think the wart faced man might be Lemony Snicket. It would kinda explain why he never shows his face, and about getting wart removal cream for your birthday. (in the MM) i dunno. it's just an idea
Here are my ideas about Messer W. art-Faced-Man (VERY bad joke indeed, note): 1) He was caught by the police trying to escape, and bundled into a police van. 2) He was run over, since there was no more room in the car, had to sit on the roof, fell forwards, and was crushed under the wheels. 3) While going up Lousy Lane in the search of Uncle Monty, he was meant to have fixed his warts so he could be disguised as Dr Lucafont, but caught an infection from the road, and died a few days later. 4) He fell into the water of Damocles Dock when Olaf, he and backup (big man-woman person) had tracked Violet, Klaus and Sunny to Aunt Josephine's house, and not knowing how to swim, and plus probably carrying something heavy, he drowned, or was eaten by the leeches. Maybe both. 5) He was mangled by the machines at Lucky Smells when he hid in Paltryville, ready to grab the old foreman and disguise himself. 6) He was toasted to death by the boiling, overly-large lasanage while at Prufrock Prep. 7.) He fell down the empty elevator shaft at 667 Dark Avenue and broke every last bone in his body. 8.) He was mistaken for another criminal in the village of V.F.D, and burnt. 9.) He fell through a weak spot in the unfinished half of Hemlich Hospital. 10.) He got eaten by the lions at carnival what's-it's-name. 11.) He invented a rocket that could travel through time and traveled to the moon in the year 3999, where humans now lived.

jeanlucio10: 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF GERMAN NAZI CONCENTRATION AND EXTERMINATION CAMP AUSCHWITZ 27 JANUARY 2020.

jeanlucio10: I would like to read now a short story written by Lemony Snicket about how VFD helped to defeat Nazism. This would be interesting to introduce the subject to children.

jeanlucio10: "Anne Frank - the Diary of a Young Girl",could be the book club's third book? I haven't read this one either.

Terry Craig: I think the historical events are interesting enough on their own, and don't need to be taught just to introduce children to Lemony Snicket.

jeanlucio10: You're right Terry.

jeanlucio10: This request of mine was a selfish appeal from my heart, disguised as a request on behalf of the children.

𝓑𝓮𝓪𝓻: i know anne frank was a belieber but i wonder if she was in the VFD too

jeanlucio10: I just read a 2013 report about your comment 𝓑𝓮𝓪𝓻, so I can understand the meaning. Through this report, I realized that there are people more self-centered than me.
