UnNews talk:J.K. Rowling reveals title for Harry Potter 8!
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
This is deliberately posted several days in advance – it should go up on the twenty-first, but I wanted to start it now before I forget.
Please feel free to finish this yourself, just keep the title and cover image intact (I actually came up with those over a year ago as a joke, to be posted when the book actually was finished, and it really is just a coincidence that "Deathly Hallows"..."Dead Horse" are so much alike.

This joke isn't original, and to be honest I'm not sure you came up with it. The Barry Trotter series of parodies actually has the third one titlted "Barry Trotter and the Dead Horse" and that came out in 2004. It is possible that you heard the title and forgot where you had heard it from. JoshuaZ 02:28, 23 July 2007 (UTC)
- I've heard of the Barry Trotter books, but was honestly unaware of the third one's title. (For some reason I must have a strange talent for coming up with entirely unoriginal ideas like that, and not knowing who else claims them for several years on end...) As far as I'm concerned I should sue that bastard for retroactive plagiarism, although I've got to admit the books themselves are pretty brilliant. And yeah, I'll admit, I just fucking hate J.K. Rowling. Megalomaniac Martin “The Unfortunately Unfeatured” Ultima • (VOTE FOR ME!) • talk • (AND MY PICS TOO!) • contribs 14:51, 24 July 2007 (UTC)
