Timeless stuff. If you want a good laugh and poke a jab at the Harry Potter fake (or real) released material on the last book, then click the links below.

Well… considering the source, I am not sure if its true. But if it is true, you would think it would be the biggest news item to hit the internet (other than Harry Potter). 197 comments on this so fa and the top one is a doozy.

Teenage girl kills herself over fake spoilers of Harry Potter and the Deathly hallows « Hi, This is Martin -OMG!!

One of the top posts on WordPress today. I don’t know if this is true or not… but for me what is interesting is that on a blog that allows comments, the blog post in question doesn’t have any (commenting closed).
