Why Clopin is Better than Esmeralda
10. You see Clopin is smart, he wears shoes... do you know how many corns, callouses and bunions Esmeralda has on her feet? They are probably filled with bacteria because there's no telling what was on the street where she was dancing. There could have been a horse passing by who couldn't hold it any longer and, well, you get the picture...
9. I think the sound of bells sounds much much better than corny feet slapping the pavement!!!!
8. Esmeralda doesn't threaten to hang people but she does threaten to chop different body parts off of people *G*
7. What do you want Clopin to do dress in drag and go shake his butt at some soldiers?
6. Well maybe cause Esmeralda isn't a puppeteer...She's a dancer remember??
5. Well if she sings better then him then how come she has one song in the movie and Clopin has what? four songs!!!!!
4. Sure she has three guys after her but did you ever stop to look at those guys... One is a Hunchback, the other guy is old, wrinkly, has a long nose, and wears a truss and last and definitely least...Phoebus, sure, may look better then the other guys but, well, you obviously haven't read the novel by Victor Hugo where Phoebus just uses Esmeralda for one thing and I'm sure you probably know what that one thing is and treats her the next day as if he doesn't even know her, he even lets her hang and doesn't care!!!!!
3. Clopin's got better things to do and what do you know she gets hanged for it (referring to the book again)
2. Well, you see, that's where you're wrong... Clopin wasn't a main character...of course he's not going to have as many parts as the character with whom the story is all about!!! But do you realize that just because he's not a main character doesn't stop him from having more fans then Esmeralda!!!
1. There you are definitely wrong... The whole time Esmeralda is in the Cathedral what is she trying to do??? Oh my gosh could it be that she is trying to get her and her calloused feet back to that sewer that she calls home...
Oh, one last thing Esmeralda is just a Gypsy... There's that one special word after Clopin's name that makes him so much better then Esmeralda besides the fact of all the statements I claimed above and many more is that he is the gypsy KING!!!!!
