You can do it with movie titles, too, but the results always end up sounding like very bad fanfiction.

It works really well if you just take out "Indiana Jones"...

Harry Potter and the Temple of Doom!
Harry Potter and the Last Crusade...

"Harry Potter and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" makes more sense than the Indiana Jones version, actually.

Heh. I think it's hilarious.

Besides, how often do you get to use the word "defenestration" in a comic? *grin*

But... Defenestation is such a cool word? I mean, it's almost as cool as the statement "Eviscerate the Proletariot"

And I apologize in advance for my spelling. I know it sucks.

I like the word "transfenestration." It's like defenestration, except you don't bother to open the window first.

Hey, "Harry Potter and the Spanish Armada" sounds awesome.

Then again, anything containing "the Spanish Armada" makes me giggle like a two-year-old.

"Our chief weapon is surprise... surprise and fear... fear and surprise... Our two weapons are fear, and surprise... and ruthless efficiency. Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency... and a fanatical devotion to the Pope. Our four... no, amongst our weapons... amongst our weaponry are such elements as fear, surprise... oh I'll just come in again."


Sorry, I had to =P
It seemed so wrong to let the quote go uncompleted.

YES! Defenestration of Prague! By far, my two favourite events in history.

And, as a side note, that's a damn cool shirt. Just so you know.

When I saw this comic, well, I had to link a few fandom friends to it:

kaesa: The Defenestration of Prague is my favorite historical event evar.
duchessdollydot: That's... really cool.
duchessdollydot: ::not rushing off to Wiki, really::
kaesa: ::snort::
duchessdollydot: ::And didn't almost type "Defenestration of Wiki" into the link, either::
kaesa: ...HAHAHAHA.
kaesa: Yes, the Encyclopedia Brittanica was waging a war against Wiki and THREW IT OUT OF A SEARCH ENGINE.
duchessdollydot: AND ONTO A CONVENIENTLY PLACED PILE OF JUNK MAIL.
kaesa: EXACTLY.
kaesa: and then Wiki was like "OMG THE GODS OF GOOGLE PUT IT THERE."
kaesa: and Brittanica was like "HAHAHA YOU LANDED ON SPAM."
duchessdollydot: And wiki was like, "I MUST FIND A WAY TO LINK THIS EVENT IN MYSELF"
kaesa: ::snort::
duchessdollydot: And then all the world came to know of the Defenestration of Wiki.
kaesa: Exactly.
duchessdollydot: Good piece of history, really. Which means, I have to say it... Harry Potter and the Defenestration of Wiki.

Or as my brother likes to call it...

I think my brother's getting annoyed with the whole "Harry Potter mania". LOL

The propblem with using movies is that ther are harry potter movies. Hence,
"Harry Potter and Harry Potter and Harry Potter and Harry Potter ..." ad infinitum.
Though I am personally of the opinion that it would be an awesome title for another book.

I think the idea of 'Harry Potter and The Charge of the Light Brigade' has Tennyson spinning in his grave....

Although 'Flash'd as they turn'd in air' has a different meaning if you think of the light briaged on broom sticks.

OK, I'm weird...

My co-workers have always thought me strange.

Of course, working for a delivery service has solved this -- we're all a bit off.

...and your top is particolored1 Whee! Is it sewn in one piece, out of interlock fabric (tee-shirt knit) with apllied decorative buttons? Now I wanna make one, although I have too much tummy for that look...

Matti, posting as I read up...

Harry Potter and the Defenestration of Prague is pretty much the back-story for the Bartimaeus Trilogy. :)

I actually know all of those historical events. I must be in the right place. =) Might I add, Harry Potter and the Princes in the Tower (not quite an event, but just as exciting-sounding).
