The Magic Circle, that respected organisation that looks after all practitioners of the 'black arts', lost its cool over claims that Harry Potter was a 'lurve child'.
"You only have to look at him to see he's mine!" claimed the ever-popular T.V. magician, Paul Daniels. "Look at the way he's going bald and the way he always says 'You'll like it - but not a lot' oh yes, he's just got to be my lurve child"
But others disagree!
The Tommy Cooper Appreciation Society claims that young Harry is a direct descendant of the late, great comedian.
"It's fairly obvious from the way he wears his fez, that he must be a direct relative!" explained Judith Bird, the club secretary.
"And the way he always gets his tricks wrong and then says things like -'just like that'--"
But the strongest claim was made by the Harry Houdini Memorial Society.
"Just to see Harry Potter escape from that locked trunk, submerged in that tank of freezing water is enough to convince us that he's one of ours" enthused Miss Helen Worth, Society President.--- "Can't be anybody else's!"
"But Harry Potter isn't a follically challenged dwarf, doesn't wear a fez, and doesn't do escapology!" stated Ali Bongo, a magic person.
"Yes, but Harry Potter is famous and is making lots of money "explained the hopeful trio. " And some of it might rub off on us"
"And that would be magic!" enthused Ali, "Yeah, like real cool magic."
