Funniest thing I've seen this week.

I've forgotten how fun it is to mock Harry Potter. I managed to make it to Azkatraz over the weekend, and it was entertaining to be that immersed in HP fandom for a little while. But I've really no interest in seeing the newest movie until it's on DVD; while the 4th book was where everything went pear-shaped, and the 5th book was where CAPSLOCK!Harry found his angst, the 6th book had the chest monster. And that is just unforgivable.

Ah - I didn't realize that the meaning of "pear-shaped" that I know is so uncommon. Apparently, the meaning I was thinking of, the third meaning after 1. shaped like a pear and 2. rich and sonorous, is mostly limited to the United Kingdom and Australasia. It describes a situation that has gone awry, perhaps horribly wrong.

I don't know what you remember of the Half-Blood Prince, but JKR represents Harry's growing romantic feelings for Ginny as monster that lives inside his chest and alternates between growling with jealously over Dean and Ginny's relationship and purring when thinking the two of them together. It struck me (and a number of other readers ( as a very strange, dissociative way to show how Harry felt.
