Rowling's weapon of mass something or other

You can never get enough wacky Harry Potter items, so here’s one from Associated Press via the Toronto Star. It seems J.K. Rowling had the manuscript for the next and final Potter novel with her on a recent trip to New York, and had to battle airport security officials to be allowed to carry the manuscript on the plane. “They let me take it on, thankfully, bound up in elastic bands,” she says.

Quillblog readers are invited to supply your own joke here. You may wish to explore the potential lethality of the manuscript (its presumed bulk, mind-glazing properties, etc.), or perhaps riffing on the bomb/dud angle would be more fruitful.
