By the way - Robbie Coltrane is NOT the burglar!

In one of the most bizarre stories of the year; it emerged today that New Zealand coppers, prohibited by some stupid liberal law, are not allowed to show the face of a 16 year old burglar on wanted posters. Instead they showed the picture of someone who apparently is a dead ringer for him albiet a few years older and without the teen's mop of greasy hair: The multi-BAFTA award winning actor Robbie Coltrane!!!

I love the part where they say: "Robbie Coltrane is not the burglar."

More at BBC News and all other news sources.

BUT . . . what if it's all a ruse, and Robbie Coltrane IS the burglar? Hey, even Lex Luthor had to start somewhere.

Hagrid is gonna open up a can of whopass on the lookalike.... shouldn't be difficult to miss a 16 year old half giant with magical abilities and a hairy brown suit, carrying a girly umbrella...... :-)
