Hey, there's this Forensics tournament coming up in November. A friend of mine wants to do an oral interpretation of a scene from HP. It would be best to have an emotional or comical scene in which many characters (so there are many voices) participate. Any ideas? It can be from any of the 6 books.

Haha I was just talking about this today. DONT DO HP FOR FORENSICS. Its too popular, it won't work. Nothing could be done from the later books anyway because too much explanation would be required for someone to understand it. Anyway if your friend does Harry Potter it will just turn out awkward and weird.
Also, this isn't for me. It's for a girl who's on the team with me. I gave her the suggestion of doing the Shrieking Shack scene near the end of HP3. There are many characters in it, and she's intent on doing Snape, and he's there. What do you think?

Why don't you? It's great!
Pandora, it seems no topic is taboo in Forensics any more. Could you just clean up the language and use TB8 anyway? (I've never read it, so I'm no judge of how it would play in interp.)
I can't use it because I used it last year. And while no topic is strictly off limits there are definitley things that shouldn't be done. It doesn't matter whether its funny or serious but I want something light and interesting. I'm looking for a prose piece.
You're in Forensics Traggles? You don't seem to be the type.
I need a piece by Tuesday. I sort of found one but I don't think I can say magikarp so many times.

Is David Sedaris overdone where you are? I think he's "light and interesting."
Dave Eggars has a neat scene in "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" where he's out on a date and left his brother with a weird babysitter. He spends the whole night imagining all th horrible things that could be happening to Topher instead of enjoying himself. It's both funny and touching.
I also found some interesting stuff here: www.mcsweeneys.net/ but I haven't read through much of it yet.
