Is it true that J K Rowling's maiden name is Elemenopie?

Tony,

I'm not surprised you're confused, because I think Bob has somehow managed to mangle the crucial word in the joke. He should have written something like 'Elemenopee', not 'Elememopie'.

That doesn't make obvious sense to the eye, but when you read it aloud it translates to L - M - N - O - P.

The joke thus hinges on the question of whether J K Rowling's maiden name was J - K - L - M - N - O - P.

(It's the way Bob tells 'em... :)

Thank you.

But surely it would have been more complete if Bob had gone for Elememopeacue then it would have been JKLMNOPQR

I must go for the bandages to repair my split sides.

A bad joke cannot stand explanation, but when you hit the wrong bloody key you have got no chance!

Sorry Wizards, sorry.

By the way, I chose Opie, because it is a genuine name.
