|Dear F. Stick.,
As dumb as it might sound, I have read the entire Harry Potter book series, even the ones yet to be published (I know the author claims to have written her last one, but in fact she intends to write twelve more). It might interest you to know the next two books introduce a Western theme by moving the whole school to the Old West. Here’s an excerpt:
“Reach for the sky, Potter. Your cattle rustlin’ days are over,” sneered Malfoy.
“Oh Hermione won’t you be my Huckleberry!” cried Harry.
Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Even though the books are a bit formulaic, I enjoy reading them for their realism. Most of them are true stories! In fact the book’s main antagonist, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, is actually based on the true life wizard, He-Who-Must-Be-Named-Dickhead. I am sure you are familiar with the story behind his name, but I will refresh your memory anyway. The wizard’s real name is Edgar Katweil, but he was such a jerk that all the other wizards thought calling him Edgar was too good for him. So, they formed a committee to discuss his name. The committee’s conclusions went like this:
And thus his name was changed.
Where was I? Oh yes, the Harry Potter books. I have read and enjoyed those books.
Stickney de Bourgas.
