So I Read the New Harry Potter Book

You know what it's about? Camping. Hundreds and hundreds of pages of camping. And the fight against evil and maturation and Nazi Germany and all that but really, mostly? Camping.

And you know what else? Not once in all their camping did they have chicken hoods. Or Charles Bronson. Or crack. And I won't even mention the lack of a truckload of whores...

Finally...someone has the courage to admit what I was thinking all along!

Let's go camping and not come back. Let's go camping with Sirius Black?

Now that I think about it, Chicken Starship superfan Allie M. is starting a "wizard band" with a friend...maybe we should license "Camping" to her to cover book 7.

Yeah, but camping with an amazing, bottomless purse in which to hold one's gear. Which never happens on my camping trips. But should.

Spoiler! Spoiler! That's terrible! Suppose some poor little kid was actually dragged off for a long family trip to Russia for the last 2 months, and all they could do was look longingly at all those copies in Cyrillic, and they just got back and ran straight out of customs to the airport W.H. Smith & got their book, and then stumbled across this...you wrecked it, dude!

OK, perhaps my scenario is a trifle farfetched. But still, there may be, like, a half-dozen people in this country who just haven't had a chance to read it but are really really looking forward to it - how can you risk wrecking it for them like that?

Jeeze louise.
