I Am Trying To Break Your Heart

The Munchkins from The Wizard of Oz got their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, and the seven remaining actors (of the original 124) were on hand for the festivities. Look, ye cynics and misanthropes! Look upon this photo and if your heart doesn't melt at the sight then it is truly made of stone. STONE, I SAY:

Still unmoved? Too hardened by these times of ours to feel a swell of emotion right in the place where your Tin Man's heart should be? Well, then, take a gander at Clarence Swenson and his wife, Myrna! Mr. and Mrs. Swenson live in Pflugerville, Texas , which is spittin' distance from Felt Up HQ in Austin, and he was one of the Munchkins who made the trip to Hollywood for the ceremony. Just look at them. LOOK AT THEM!

I don't care if you think The Wizard of Oz is overrated, I don't care if your entire childhood was tormented by endless nightmares of Munchkins chasing you with lollipops, I don't care what excuse you might have: These are the sweetest photos EVER!
