We’re considering having an artist friend sketch up a bingo card for Harry Potter news.

Square could be “new tie-in book,” “movie adaptation,” “viral tweet from J.K. Rowling,” “rare memorabilia sold,” and — the inspiration for this tongue-in-cheek brainchild — “books protested.”

Specifically, we thought of it in connection with a Polish priest’s apology for hosting a book burning that included Harry Potter titles.

According to the Guardian, Father Rafał Jarosiewicz tossed in the books along with other items “thought to be connected to magic and the occult.”

In addition to being tried in the court of public opinion, Jarosiewicz has been fined by city officials and could see other legal consequences, if an anti-smog group has its way.
