"It's a twister, it's a twister!"

So exclaims farmhand Zeke (Bert Lahr) during the first act of "The Wizard of Oz," describing the incoming tornado that will yank young Dorothy Gale's house from its very foundations and whisk it away to the magical land of Oz, where it would prove to be the inadvertent lethal weapon in dispatching with the Wicked Witch of the East.

We all know Oz is real, but the whole tornado thing is a little far-fetched. What kind of a twister would it take to send an entire house into the wild blue yonder? Or, more importantly, what kind of twister would it take to send your house to Oz?

To find out if your own home is susceptible to the sudden transportation powers of Mother Nature, click on the image below to head on over to Movoto, where you can enter the square footage and number of stories of your place of residence to see if you should maybe start anticipating a journey down the Yellow Brick Road some day. Getting a dog and naming it Toto might be a good idea, too.

"Oz the Great and Powerful," which features a hot air balloon rather than a house (those things end up in Oz all the time), opens March 8.
