Ok, what's the next line there? I know the line was interupted- but do you think he was about to say "testicle" or "buttock"?
Earlobe?:

I LOL about the twins U-NO-POO sign.

Actually about all the parts with the twins except Fred dying.

This isn't in the book, but I saw a graphic somewhere that said
"Shouting Lumos at the light switch will not help."

does anyone watch doctor who?
In the episode where they go back to shakespeares england, the doctor and martha use "expleriamus" (sp?) to defeat these witch like aliens.

The doctor also says that he cried when he read book 7 (this came out earlier this year in england before the book was out.)

Ohhh I remember the expelliarmus being used, but not the comment about book 7! Which episode was that? I've been a fan of Dr. Who since childhood.:

they're both in the same episode. I think he says the line about book seven when they are in the bedroom figuring out how to share the one bed. maybe.

Oh, another part I thought was funny was right after Harry opened his gifts, while still at the burrow, and Hermione said she would pack them for him and then she says "I'm nearly done {packing}, I'm just waiting for the rest of your underpants to come out of the wash, Ron" and Ron splutters... I can totally his face saying 'Why are you washing my underpants?!' LOL!!

But it wasn't Merlin's saggy left pants. Swearing by Merlin's pants was separate from swearing on Merlin's saggy left ?

Rita Skeeter... "It was worth the trouble I had to get Verisyrum..."(sp and such, I know!) but isn't that stuff illegal? And she's admitting to it in print? Love it.

I thought Verasitaserum came up in another book. Goblet of Fire, maybe? And it was a really big deal, if it wasn't illegal.


Anyone?



Anyway, I just found it funny.

In GOF, (pg 517 U.S.) Snape tells Harry," the use of this potion is controlled by very strict Ministry guidelines."

Sounds like she would have been outside the bounds of the guidelines, but of course that was the old ministry's rules and they may have changed after Scrimgouer took over.

No one has put my favorite up, so I'm going to paraphase, since I'm on vacation without the book. I like the part where Harry tells Aberforth Dumbledore gave him a job and Aberforth says "nice? easy? the sort of thing you'd expect an unqualified wizard kid to do?"

This part at the beginning had me rolling!

"Ooh, you look much tastier than Crabbe and Goyle, Harry," said Hermione, before catching sight of Ron's raised eyebrows, blushing slightly, and saying, "Oh, you know what I mean - Goyle's potion looked like bogies."

Then...

"He felt like asking them to show a little more respect for his privacy as they all began stripping off with impunity, clearly much more at ease with displaying his body than they would have been with their own."

Six naked "Harry Potters" (including Hermione and Fleur!) strutting around the room and checking out his body with absolutely no sense of modesty. Hilarious!!! I <3 JK Rowling.

When Ron says of Luna "She's always good value." I don't know why that tickled me, but DH and I keep quoting it to each other when the children do something funny.

Oh, and Hermione exclaiming "Merlin's pants!" and then Ron later talking about Merlin's Y-fronts.
