.....and they've gotten ex-Monty Python member John Cleese to play a ghost in the movies. It is not a good thing when the writer of a interesting movie (A Fish Called Wanda) gets sucked into doing a boring movie (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone).

I've never read the books, but I saw both movies and liked them. Good imagination, and they didn't overuse the special effects.

<br><br>In 1976 a little child was born. His name was Larry. . . Larry Fucker. His parents raised him on candy and cheap chocolate bars and Larry soon got lonely. He had to find some girl. Stupid as he was he went to a local store called Ambardinia. He bought a little t-shirt that he named Bastard Jones. That t-shirt became his friend and instructed him how to make a girl using a wand and two plastic fingers. Never did Larry know that Bastard was really telling him an old ritual that would grow a chin that was twice as nasty as the one he had before. The chin eventually got grown into a beard. Some early pizza rests had grown stuck into the magnet which Freddy Neddy (an early friend) had planted inside the beard of Larry himself. Larry got furious. He called directly to BanThoseFuckers Inc and requested an IP removal. After paying 20 bucks for a lousy internet server that could only ban people and lay bombs on small pieces of cheese. However, Freddy was so smart that he asked Bastard to recreate his IP into a PI variable that could not be understood by the server Larry bought. After being totally frustrated, Larry went to Flowering Chickens Corporation and got himself some fart gas. He wrapped to ton of them into two bedroll chickens and tucked them into his magnet in the beard. His beard was so huge that a few rats he had for dinner felt out before Bastard's eyes. Bastard told Freddy, but Freddy didn't believe him so they had an argument. Larry twitched his eyes and went into Freddy's house only to find out that he had been killed be a four legged dog by the name of Hell. Bastard was still alive because of Larry's incredible fart stence. What could Larry do? If he left Bastard, he would die or if he stayed he would be eaten by Hell. So he took an old lighter off the bed table and ignited it using a burned out candle stick. After burning his beard and tossing it into Hell's mouth, Hell died and both Larry and Bastard survived and could go lucky home for breakfast with fried rats and a few dog legs. :)<br><br><br>The End<br><br><br>http://members.lycos.co.uk/kbshrine/limbo/larry.html

<br><br>Yes that is my site. All of it. The index pages got deleted once because everybody hated the site and I don't think I can get them back I'm afraid. But you can acces each from these links:<br><br>http://members.lycos.co.uk/kbshrine/riseofthedead<br>http://members.lycos.co.uk/kbshrine/kubusmannen<br>http://members.lycos.co.uk/kbshrine/limbo<br>http://members.lycos.co.uk/kbshrine/geoshities<br><br>I think that was all. You can even make your own site, just go here:<br><br>http://members.lycos.co.uk/kbshrine/<br><br>EDIT:<br><br>You CAN NOT sign up for the newsletter though.

I just read that the new Harry Potter book isn't getting the best reviews.  Not that it matters sicne the book has already sold so many copies.  When is the McDonald's HAppy Meal toy coming out again?
