It’s that Tinman again, doing for Shakespeare and Harry Potter what no man has done before.


Worth Doing Badly

This week’s Daily Post Writing Challenge is “Stylish Imitation”, so here is the world’s most famous playwright telling the world’s most famous story…
Alarums, fanfares and trumpets. Enter Harry, Hermione and Ron.

Harry: When shall we three meet again?

Hermione: Next term at Hogwarts.

Harry: Oh, true. (they exit home for the holidays)

Enter He Who Must Not Be Named.

Voldemort (oops, sorry): Fast fare thy failure, Potter, with thy stupid scar
I’ll kill thee fore you can say, er “Nascar”.

Ghost of Nearly Headless Nick enters.

Voldemort: Sodeth off, thou twerp. (Nick exits, pursued by his career).

First Day of New Term. Enter Harry, Hermione and Ron.

Hermione: Grave news. (Holds up skull). Dobby is not to be.

Harry: Alas, poor Dobby. I knew him well.

Hermione: Not well.

Harry: I can see that.

Hermione: No, the word “well”…

    I can see Viv! That Tinman is very clever. Thanks for the great reblog. I hope that you slept better and more comfortably last night.

    Wicked clever!

    Tinman: an unsung comic genius. Hope those judges recognise that.

    24th: What no joke? Is Tilly OK?


  8. Tinman September 24, 2012 at 12:04 #

    Yet again, Till, thanks so much for re-blogging this 🙂

      Wish I could do more to promote you…though, come to think of it, now you’ve been FPed (well-deserved and not before time), you should be promoting me 😉


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
