  • 10 points to JK's son

    It’s been a big week for JK Rowling. The author celebrated the official opening of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child (which FYI, has had incredible reviews), seen the script of the play simultaneously released in bookstores and revealed that dum dum dum… Harry Potter’s story is actually over. Finito. Put to rest, etc etc…

    ‘Harry is done now,’ she said at the London premiere of the play.

    ‘He goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we’re done.’

    Anyway, while you try to stoically process this piece of information, JK Rowling also celebrated another milestone, her 51st birthday. But what do you get a woman whom, outwardly at least, looks like she has pretty much everything you could possible want?

    A mug. Obviously.  

    JK Rowling shared the picture of the mug she was given by her son on Twitter and it’s a proper goody.  

    The photo shows a pissed-off looking owl suffering from ‘Irritable Owl Syndrome’, saying ‘f*** off’.

    Just what mum wanted, right?

    ‘I think we can all agree that this is an unacceptable gift from a son to his mother on her birthday,’ she wrote in the tweet.

    10 points to you sir. And 10 points to JK Rowling for winning at Twitter, again.
