Now i know a little more.
Lee’s e-diary mentions the same Hari Puttar film i wrote about on Tuesday. He says, ‘The Hari Puttar name began making the rounds here as a comic gag when the first “Harry Potter” film was released.’ Seems i can’t comment on his blog so i’ll tell you here: I didn’t know that when i said, essentially, fair enough. I suppose it’s obvious that where Hari and Puttar are common names, the joke would spring up, but i hadn’t thought deeply enough to predict that. It colours one’s view that little bit.
