News Flash: Sybill Trelawney Consults at Davos![JAB]

Courtesy of our friends at, we discover a possible reason for the recent World Economic Meltdown Sybill Trelawney has been consulting at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Actually, Sybill was masquerading as the actress Emma Thompson at the time, but HogPro’s know what happens when Madame Trelawney begins to supply guidance…’nuff said.

Under the headline: Laughter works magic for ‘Harry Potter’ star at Davos forum reports:

When Emma Thompson borrowed from John Cleese’s Handbook Of Silly Walks to address a high-powered forum about pressing global issues, it worked a treat. The charismatic actress grabbed everyone’s attention at the annual meeting of the world’s most influential global players in Davos, Switzerland.

On a [slightly] more serious note, after she gets her degree (honorary) from Harvard, will J.K. Rowling be going to Davos next year? If so, what might she add to their discussions? Comments?

    Sybill in economics?! What’s next? Erroll in the US postal service? Well, actually, that might be an improvement…

  2. Arabella Figg says

    You could always have Snape in Better Living Through Chemistry and Hermione speaking for unions. Or Ollivander and Hagrid on foresty and rare woods preservation.

    The kitties would happily speak on wildlife preservation…

  3. Maybe Professor McGonigal could appear(?) on TLC’s Trading Spaces and Professor Binns would certainly be a hit on the History Channel!!!! Any of the Death Eaters could guest spot on Inked in L.A. or Miami Ink 🙂 and maybe the Dursleys would consent to appear on The Travel Channel now that they’ve hit the high road with Dedalus and Hestia?

    GTN; I like your line of thinking!!!

    Arabella, I have a granddog who thinks she’s part of the family…do the kitties get along with pooches?

    PJ, the kitties get along with anyone who will show obesiance to their Royal Selves. However, since it’s your granddog, I’m sure they would extend the paw of friendship.

    Perhaps the Durleys, et al, could be in the Amzaing Race, bickering all the way. Firenze would host the Discovery Channel. Let’s put Luscious Malfoy on Lost–his flashbacks would be interesting, also his confrontations with Smokey. Little Tom Riddle could have some Nanny 911 intervention. Crabbe and Goyle could try Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? Fred and George could do Punked and Luna Lovegood could host Animal Planet.

    The kitties would watch that one…

  5. Another article indicated that stars like Emma were at Davos to speak about their charities like Bono of U2.
