    In honour of Harry Potter's fifteenth anniversary (yes, it really has been fifteen years), Bloomsbury hav announced a competition to find Harry Potter's biggest fan.

    It's open only to British and Irish residents, so bad luck you foreign people, but from now until the 31st of July, 2012, you can write into your local bookshop or library with the reason why you are Harry Potter's biggest fan.

    The competition rules are available here, but basically you toddle off down to one of 1,800 participating bookshops or libraries, and write your 50 word declaration of love for Harry Potter, and the winner gets a family holiday to Universal Studios and a leather-bound, signed, dedicated and numbered 15th Anniversary Edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

    There are some runner up prizes too, but I'll ignore those.

    So what are you waiting for? Get off those lazy arses and go win some goodies!

    Would be hilarious if one of our British-bro's on the site dropped off their personal fanfictions as their "deceleration."

    Let's just pretend that I would totally win if I was British.

    It's really been fifteen years, huh? That's pretty nuts.

    Dude, you get to call yourself 'Harry Potter's Biggest Fan'. What could be cooler than that?

    Plus, y'know, the prizes.

    This ain't me, I can tell you that. I only dressed up as a HP character the three times, and two were Halloween.

    Fuck 'em; I'll enter anyway.

    And, I'll win...

    Because they'll be impressed by my use of a blood quill. :twisted:

    ... Fucking British elitism. Think you're so big just 'cause you ruled half the planet and make us all speak the same language and keep us out of your contests...

    You should take this to the little-known Official PYP 1.1 Thread: Arms, Abs, and Assholes on Steroids.

    DLP can only be enhanced by pictures of all of us shirtless and flexing. Photoshop optional.

    I'm willing to bet you're a bigger faggot than him too.

    What makes that a considerable achievement is the fact that he's a brony.

    I'm sorry, random douche on the internet making extremely overplayed joke at where I live's expense? Especially when I wouldn't be surprised if he's not in the best of shape himself?

    Yeah, I'll comment. And if you're still using faggot as a real insult, well, you can fuck off.

    Faggot.
