Dear Readers,

I now consider this blog to be my Juvenelia. Have fun perusing the archives, and find me at my new haunt, here.

The dumbest Harry Potter article of all time

An article by a yuppie mom complaining about the DRINKING in Harry Potter? This is totally overprotective parenting gone wild.
NYTimes fail.

People are mocking it all over the interwebs, but I had to join in. Ha ha ha ha!


  1. Wow. What a bunch of drivel - thanks for the link! (You would think NYT would be trying extra-hard not to print superbly stupid things just at the moment, but whatevs.)

  2. I could not agree more. I read the article and thought, this is what is wrong with this country. People are simply retarded.
    I don't like my kids to drink and smoke, but they do. I talk to them about these things and explain that at the end of the day having your brain cells is a good thing, but that's all I can do.
    Teach your kids by example and it will sink in. Then relax.
    If anything, the drinking in Harry Potter is an example of the "right" way to consume alcohol. No one misbehaves or goes overboard. It shows that you don't have to get falling-down drunk to have a good time, that you can enjoy a nice drink for the pleasure of drinking it and relaxing, and then move on with your life.
    Thanks for pointing it out, it needed to be said out loud. Others are saying it, but we need to speak up against the rampant puritanism of this country!
