Oh, yeah. Who's cool?
« on: October 10, 2005, 01:03:33 PM »
So, Mugglenet had this contest for a while entitled "Funny Ways Voldemort Won't Die." I submitted an entry and didn't win. However, they released the whole list today, and... well... Check out number 33.

Yeah, that's mine. I guess that makes me famous now. Starting now, I'm selling autographs for five... no, make that ten dollars each. Better get in line soon, though. I can hear the crowd gathering outside my house even now.

The funny thing is, they changed the wording of my entry a little bit. The one I submitted said "naked" instead of "topless." Must have been too risque for the Mugglenet folks.

Anyways, yeah, I was pretty excited about that, but I wish I would have won one of the prizes. Ah well. ;D

*bows before your famousness*

Man, though, I wish I'd known about the contest. I'd have submitted the way the series must end.

Duel to the death between Voldy and Harry. Harry is disarmed, injured, bleeding, about to die. Voldemort lowers his wand. "Avada," he starts, but then BAM! The wand changes into a rubber chicken. Fred and George wander in. "Oh, that's where the missing trick wand went!"

Heh, that's good, Ping. They announced the contest on MuggleCast, which is the PodCast that MuggleNet does... Maybe I'm a major geek for actually listening to it, but hey, I have iTunes and it's entertaining.

Actually, I listened to it on my friends Ipod once and I thought it was rather entertaining too.  But it doesn't take much to interest me...

Anyway, great entry!  That's a cool idea for a contest, too.
