Ready to have your mind blown? Seven characters from Roald Dahl’s classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory represent the seven deadly sins.

1. Augustus Gloop is gluttony:

He’s either eating or thinking about eating. And his name rhymes with poop.

2. Veruca Salt is greed:

She’s a spoiled brat who always wants more.

3. Violet Beauregarde is pride:

She’s always boasting.

4. Mike Teavee is sloth:

He sits and watches TV all the time.

5. Grandpa Joe is envy:

He wants what Wonka has (the factory) and Charlie has (the ticket).

6. Charlie is lust:

Not the sexual kind, but the intense desire.

7. … and Wonka is wrath:

He punishes everyone for their flaws.
