Perhaps the most famous work of Creator/{{Voltaire}}, '''''Candide''''' is a biting {{satire}} of the then-popular view that we live in the [[RousseauWasRight best of all]] [[CrapsaccharineWorld possible worlds]]. [[WideEyedIdealist So you can guess]] [[BreakTheCutie what happens from that]].

After being drafted into the [[{{Prussia}} Bulgar]] army based solely on his height, Candide meets his philosophy professor Dr. Pangloss, who has been stricken with syphilis that he got from a woman working for the Baron [[note]]that she got from a cavalry captain who got it from a marquise, who got it from a page, who got it from a Jesuit, who got it from a man who had gotten it directly from [[RefugeInAudacity Christopher Columbus]][[/note]], is shipwrecked at Lisbon, kills two priests and a Jew, meets a woman who is missing [[VulgarHumor half a buttock due to cannibalism]], goes to [[{{MarySuetopia}} the legendary city El Dorado]] where [[WorthlessYellowRocks gold is the same as dirt]], meets someone who assures Candide that the chief occupations of every city, in order of importance, are "love-making, malicious gossip and talking nonsense," goes to Constantinople, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking gardens]]. Along the way he meets many other figures from his previous life, including Cunégonde, who have all gotten into [[RefugeInAudacity increasingly ridiculous predicaments]] and escaped them anyway, to join forces with him later.
