Harry Potter and the F****ing Pigeons – Chinese bootleg’s subtitles are full of melons 【Pics】

But perhaps my biggest question is this: What’s the deal with all the melons?

Wait, you don’t know about the melons? Or about Harry’s middle management struggles as he climbs the corporate ladder? Then read on for all of these plot elements added to the beloved franchise by Chinese bootleg subtitles.
