Look Ma, no originality!

This is Resonant's birthday present from Julad and Calico, and mainly involved scanning, typing and search-and-replace.

The original book is George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl, and only the names have been changed. The illustrations are by the wonderful Quentin Blake, and only the hair has been changed. Of course, we also stole Severus' name from J.K.Rowling, and his hairstyle from Alan Rickman's wig. We are just bad to the bone.

We strongly encourage everyone to buy a complete set of Roald Dahl books-- no household is complete without them. We'd also like to encourage everyone to buy a complete set of Alan Rickman wigs. And yes, buy all the Harry Potter books-- maybe we can make Rowling richer than Bill Gates next, and seriously, that would make us Mac freaks very, very happy.

No harm intended, no profit made. We think this is eerily fitting and really quite funny, is all.
