* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: In the final chapter, the Baker's last words are "It's a Boo-". Some scholars and analysts believe he was trying to say, not "Boojum", but ''"Boots"'', and that he wasn't spirited away by some monster of legend, but ''murdered by one of his crewmates'', [[TheGhost the one you never hear about and who never appears in illustrations.]]

** The bandersnatch, [[http://c8.alamy.com/comp/F964KM/the-final-illustration-from-fit-the-eighth-the-vanishing-showing-the-F964KM.jpg final illustration]] ostensibly shows the Bellman ringing his bell to mourn the Baker's passing, but the shadows in the lower-left reveal some sort of claw or beak grabbing someone's hand, while the branches of the tree form the Baker's horrified face.

process. [[http://c8.alamy.com/comp/F964M5/the-banker-driven-insane-after-being-attacked-by-the-bandersnatch-F964M5.jpg The next time we see him]], his face and hands have gone black (and his waistcoat white), and he's no longer capable of speaking coherently, just shouting and mumbling while flailing about and grimacing. He's clearly trying to tell the rest of the crew something, but the Bellman just abandons him at that point, leaving him to die alone on the Bandersnatch's island.

* HilariousInHindsight: One of the ways given to recognize a Snark is that it has no sense of humor, but the term "snark" has itself come to mean a sarcastic, humorous quip, of just the sort the Snark would detest.
