The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Were you shocked?

I was SHOCKED to find out Harry Potter was really a girl and in the throws of PMS killed half the characters with a cookie cutter and chop sticks.

Not as shocked as when Voldemort was unmasked at the end, revealing his true identity as Old Man Smithers. "I'd have gotten away with it, if it wasn't for you meddling kids," he was heard to say as they carted him off. Wink

I heard something about the book starting on a desert planet and Harry acquiring some droids and while cleaning them he hears a top secret message from a Princess for an old wizard who lives on the same planet.

You know what I just realized?
This entire time, I've had the title of the book spelled wrong in the title of this thread.
I had written, "Harry Potter and the Deathy Hallows".

I can't believe I missed that!
Me...the guy who is obsessed with spelling everything right.    Lookingup

The "L" has officially been added to the title of this thread.

Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?

I finished the book last night; my wife is a major Potter nerd, so she ordered the book back in February. She read it Saturday. I started it Saturday night and finished it about midnight Sunday. I enjoy the series, though not nearly as much as my wife does. The books are, overall, much better than the movies (except for HP and the Order of the Phoenix, which managed to portray Harry much better on film than the book). I read it quickly because my daughter wants me to read it with her, so I needed to know what was going to happen to prepare.

I must say, my favorite part is where the robots are defeated with a computer virus.  TeddyR

I finished the book this morning.  I had read the online spoilers, and I thought the ending was going to be too Disney-ish, but with all of the deaths that happened it really wasn't.  It was actually a good ending to the series.

But it left a lot of unanswered questions, so I'm kinda glad I just read an article saying that the author will probably be writing an encyclopedia to go with the series in which she'll give back stories and what-happened-later info on many of the characters.

Which unanswered questions, Ms Whiplash?   TeddyR  Bet some of 'em are answered in the book, in fact.

 Smile An IMDB user said that she and a friend had gone to buy the book, her friend just grabbed a book and bought it, thinking that it was the new one. She thumbed to the end and said out loud: "Oh no, they killed Dumbledore again!" to laughter from those assembled.  TeddyR

I think she bought either Goblet of Fire or Half Blood Prince, I'm not sure which.

I have read this book, I was pretty satisfied with the end, which is that Harry Potter finds out that soylent green is people and that Hermione and Ron get it together. SPOILER!!

Actually, one of the main reasons I have never read them is that I don't care for their author, Ms. Rowling.  And so long as I can help it, I won't contribute to her fortune.

Er.. I'm confused, you haven't read any of the books, but you say you don't like the author? 

Uh.. huh?

I mean, could understand if was like a political activist or something, but last I checked she hasn't done any of that.  Or are you referring maybe to the silly plagiarism charges some other chick was trying to level against her?

Finished it.  Who knew that Hagrid had the ability to call on Godzilla -- kinda funny that the only way to save Hogwarts was to have Godzilla trash the place.  The scene where they made Dudley "squeal like a pig" was a bit excessive.

I only started reading the series after my sister gave me the first 3 books for a Christmas present.  I thought they were enjoyable, though not on the level of LOTR.  The series did get a couple of my nieces into reading, even though they previously weren't.  I suspect that's the case with a lot of kids, so Rowling should get karma points for that alone -- making reading cool for kids.
