Harry Potter Randomness

A thought occured to me while browsing through a few lists when I was supposed to be reading Spanish literature: the person who sent in Harry Potter and the Slimy, Oily, Greasy Haired Professor to a list of admittedly rather silly rejected Harry Potter titles a while ago displayed an incredible amount of prescience in so doing. Essentially, that title is another way of saying Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Anyway...

The best rejected titles, though, are as follows:

Harry Potter and too many Goblets of Firewhisky
Harry Potter Solves Manchester United Defence Problem
Harry Potter Meets the Baudelaire Children and Wonders How He Got Off So Good

(The last one contains a Lemony Snicket reference, and I find it hilarious.)
