FTFA: The mayor asked children to write to Universal, Warner Brothers and the author, JK Rowling, and urge them to bring Potter home to Britain.

Uhhh, isn't this a lot of days late and more than 75 million dollars short? A letter writing campaign might have stood more of a chance, oh, I don't know...back when this project first got started, not when it's about to freaking open.

ThisIsNotSubtle: more than 75 million dollars short


Whoops, make that more than 250 million dollars. Which sure isn't making those letters any more likely to do a damned bit of good.

can you at least share more Doctor Who with us?

Dear London,

Please keep Harry Potter away from our country.

Best,

P.S. You can touch him all you like.

Shut up or we will have a future president cross a frozen river in the middle of the night to kill a bunch of you on Christmas morning. Again.

Dear London,
Our culture was founded on stealing from, and beating up on, Britain.

Love,
America

WHAT?! THE AMERICANS WANT TO WASTE AN ASTRONOMICAL AMOUNT OF MONEY BUILDING A SHRINE TO A LITERARY FAD WHOSE POPULARITY WILL MOST DECIDEDLY FADE WITHIN A GENERATION?!

THAT'S OUR FAD, YOU COCKSNEEZES!!!

Dear Britain,

If you don't want us to have your culture, then stop selling it to us.

Love,
America

PS Please take back Hugh Grant. He's by the curb.

I wish we'd got the park just because I don't want HP to turn more American than ever, but I think a Wizarding World UK would have been crap (we just don't have the money). I'm all for the USA park now. A hot summer holiday and my nerd nirvana rolled into one? That's the best thing ever!

Also, Boris Johnson is a tool. If you've never heard of this man, believe me when I say he's Britain's Village Idiot. We have no idea how he became the Mayor of London. He has always been a laughing stock...
 
2010-06-09 5:53:35 PM  
good, take it. take it and your blood sausages... and every other British "food" thing. be gone!

/only interested in making fun of British with bad Austin Powers movies
 
2010-06-09 5:53:45 PM  
They should be pissed at what a half-assed job Universal did. All they cared about was getting the license, then once they did, they just tacked a Harry Potter theme onto a bunch of pre-existing rides.

Oh, and there's a new huge store with Harry Potter stuff... that'll show 'em.

/Still waiting on my Star Wars theme park.

FTFY - gotta spell it their way, because they don't understand English.
 
2010-06-09 5:53:57 PM  
Um, "Harry Potter" is culture? Nothing against it, but it's not Shakespeare. Or the Queen. Or even Queen.

The British should be more upset about what we've done to beer.

I'd like to protest this piece of British culture being brought over here and replacing our American culture. It's a form of cultural imperialism.

Don't blame us because your writer whored herself out to a Hollywood studio for a gazillion dollars (pounds, whatever).

I don't even like Harry farking Potter.

I'll download the hell out of some Doctor Who though.

Dear Britain,

Thanks for lots of great stuff from Monty Python to Shameless. You're tops in entertainment (land of Shakespeare, go figure) and the best that North American culture can do is make bad copies of your good stuff or bad copies of bad copies of their own junk.

Sincerely,
Canadian

They've been planning this theme park since I started reading Harry Potter, which was back in freakin 1998.

Oh yes. Google searching featherspy may or may not reveal some very bad Harry Potter fanfiction.
 
2010-06-09 5:58:15 PM  
Isn't it enough for you limeys that Ms. Rowling is richer than your Head Anachronism?

No, you can't have a Harry Potter theme park. Not yours.

Boris was elected because every driver in the city was furious with Red Ken over the congestion charge. They somehow had a strange idea that he might repeal it as his first act in office. Instead, the drivers' candidate banned drinking alcohol on the tube.

Pillocks.
 
2010-06-09 5:59:16 PM  
He should have said something earlier. The thing is going to open in a few days. Does he really think they're going to shut it down and ship it overseas?
