Hilarious but sad. Through Media Culpa I got the news that Harold Pinter, the literature Nobel Prize winner from 2005 had passed away. So what’s so hilarious about that? Well, with his death – nothing really. However, when Swedish Radio (SR) reported about it, they accidentally (or unconsciously) turned Pinter into Potter, yes – as in Harry Potter.
“The British writer and dramatist Harry Potter is dead, it was announced today. Potter received the Nobel Prize in literature in 2005. He wrote about 30 plays and more than 20 screenplays. He was 78 years old.”
