The woman across the cubicle keeps talking about someplace in Wildomar, and every time she says it, I hear Voldemort….
I guess it’s just the “HP and the A of B” pattern, combined with the new movie coming out, but I’d like to see titles like:
- Harry Potter and the Temple of Doom
- Harry Potter and the Last Crusade
- Harry Potter and the Chocolate Frog Factory
- Harry Potter and the Holy Grail
- Harry Potter Versus the Volcano
But let’s stay away from titles like:
The two of us and our friend Daniel were wandering through Borders last night, looking at the Harry Potter display. Oddly, it was right next to the sections on Astrology, Speculative (I guess New Age is too passé), two whole shelves on Magical Studies, Christianity, Metaphysics, and finally Self-Help. (How’s that for an interesting combination?)
Among them we found some frightening titles, like Dreams for Dummies (they don’t already have them?), or The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Being Psychic, which made the claim that everyone is psychic, as opposed to the book we found down the shelf, which proclaimed merely that All Women are Psychic. Wiccan Feng Shui seemed like an interesting idea.
Daniel found the real kicker: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Enhancing Self-Esteem. Just think about it.
