Amazon Red-Faced After Harry Potter Blunder

 

Amazon.co.uk has been forced to make a formal apology after more than 100,000 Harry Potter fans received an email stating that Amazon’s supplier will not be shipping the book on time, and that customers should look elsewhere.

The eMail, of course, was a blunder and Amazon has assured customers that the book will be delivered on the 16th of July, as promised. “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” is Amazon’s second-best seller ever, 5 months before it’s release date.

The apology eMail read: "We assure you that howlers have been sent to the muggles responsible for this action and we are investigating the possibility that You-Know-Who may have been involved."

  Who  
 
what? Who is "You-Know-Who" or who is Harry Potter?

You-Know-Who is Lord Voldemort, HP's arch enemy and the reason he's an orphan. They say You-Know-Who in the books because everyone's too scared to speak his name.

My son loves those damn movies. He was even Harry Potter for Halloween. He wouldnt even leave the friggin house without making me draw a scar on his forehead. He even had the gall to go into the bathroom to make sure it was exactly like HP's. Then in his cutest little four year old voice said, "Ok mommy, I guess it'll have to do."
I couldnt believe that kid!!!
