OLKATA, India (AFP) - Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is suing organizers of a religious event for constructing a replica of her imaginary Hogwarts Castle in an eastern India city, officials said Thursday.
Rowling and her publishers Bloomsbury are seeking two million rupees (50,000 dollars) from the organizers constructing an elaborate castle from canvas and Papier Mache in Kolkata for the upcoming Durga Puja festival, court officials said.
Because she really doesn't have enough cash. I mean, come on. Throw the gal a friggin' bone. It's not like J.K. isn't richer that Zeus. Seriously, I'm sure she really needs the extra fifty grand to… pay for her cat's vasectomy, or to finally afford to have her ENTIRE lawn mowed… castle scrubbed?… Jet waxed?… Fleet of nannies messaged…? The gal’s got needs. Come. On.
Bottom line: J.K. IS JUST TRYING TO SCRATCH BY LIKE EVERYONE ELSES SO PAY UP YOU BUNCH OF INDIAN THEIVES.
Besides, who do you think you are... building A REPLICA OF HOGWARTS CASTLE OUT OF PAPIER MACHE.
I seriously think Rowling could cash in if she were to take her lawyers to the beach and sue the crap outa all the little kids who are making Hogwarts sandcastles. She could at least score their shovel and bucket if she took them to court. Shoot, she's probably desperate for those too. I know I am.
p.s., Dear J.K., please don't sue me for posting a picture of the papier mache replica of Hogwarts. I'm on your side.
