Canberras own leading Potter nerd

By johnboy 4 February 2007 44

The Canberra Times yesterday gave an enourmous splash (whoa! no para breaks CT guys? Let me know if you want someone to put stories online for you, my rates are very reasonable) to young Andy McCray, 17, of Theodore, who is studying at St Edmunds and runs the Harry Potter Fan Zone which the publishers like so much they send him around the world on Potter related junkets.

(Hey let’s even give his link code a go while we’re here whee!)

Now personally I’ve never been a huge fan of Narnia neutered of spirituality Harry Potter. I mean yippee if it gets the kids reading and they can move onto the books JK Rowling so egregiously recycles, but other than that it’s never grabbed me.

But is Harry Potter really so enthralling that it’s healthy for a 17 year old boy to be spending this much time on it? Or am I just jealous?

What’s Your opinion?

Or the next book in the series, HP and the After Grog Bog, the account of when Voldemorte replaces the water in the mystical fountain with an alcoholic alternative.

The entire school goes into party mode, and naughty polaroids are later circulated about Heremonie G and a certain Black Arts teacher. The redhead git ‘comes out’ at the party, to be spurned by HP, later turning to a life of despair and wearing black. Hints are made at sitting alone contemplating life at the top of water towers with a loaded wand.

I’ll leave the rest for Rowlings to complete.

Actually, I can’t wait to read ‘Harry Potter and the Bong of Doom’

I’ve heard the next book is going to be called ‘Harry Potter and the Bong of Doom’

In which Harry and his mates come across a magical bong that mystically lights itself whenever ‘He who cannot be mentioned’ turns up, and in this way Harry, the red headed git and Hermoine save the world, yet again, by getting wasted and therefore not worrying about the evil around them, thus giving the evil nothing feed on.

And then they get picked up by a Vogon ship that happens to be flying through a strange wardrobe in a frozen land inhabited by funny little creatures with big hairy feet and funny ears…

Or maybe not….

Nope, didn’t mean you JB… Unless I’ve misinterpreted this site completely and it’s aimed at young children.
