16 Hysterical Tweets From People Watching 'Harry Potter' For The First Time

Diply 2 Apr 2018

How is it possible that there are human beings who haven't read every single Harry Potter book and watched every single movie?

Apparently, it is, and thankfully, Twitter is a thing, so we can get a close look into the minds of people experiencing the boy wizard for the very first time. We feel #Blessed.

1. I truly do not understand why parents would send their children back to a school that is continuously attacked by the Dark Lord.

I know, I know, it's supposed to be a safe haven, but the guy was after one kid...who attends the same school as your kid. The solution seems simple to me.

2. This is probably the greatest description of Ron I have ever heard, and I will forever refer to him as this. 

Twitter | @SquadLeaderAce

Who wouldn't want to be introduced to people as a sly ginger? Probably Ron.

3. "Pulling a Space Jam" refers to providing someone with a special juice that they will believe will improve their performance.

Harry totes went Bugs Bunny on Ron during Quidditch tryouts and made him think he really drank Liquid Luck. In fact, it was a whole lotta nothin'.

4. I'm pretty sure you mean Hagrid's wig is your Patronus, but it's okay — you're new here. 

Twitter | @mollykat3

It really is the best character of the entire series. It has its own room in Hagrid's hut. I'm actually not entirely convinced that his hair isn't one of his wacky creatures he keeps as pets. Jury's still out.

5. Same, dude. Same. 

Twitter | @SquadLeaderAce

Fingers were crossed that Umbridge's fate was left up to the creatures of the Forbidden Forest, but apparently, Harry Potter has a problem with the bad guys being killed.

Heroes getting killed is fine, by the way.

6. Just wait. 

Twitter | @ctsmth04

We promise you figure out his deal, and it is super worth it.

Sure, he seems like a horrible person only out to make Harry's life a living nightmare, and he does a superb job at that, but trust us, he's cool.

7. I would pay a lot of money to watch this live. 

Twitter | @chrisabrahamson

Draco and Joffrey are literally the absolute worst, and I think I would drive myself crazy trying to definitely decide who wins the award for creepiest blonde.

8. We would very much enjoy a little device that alerted us when someone shady was nearby. That way, I can find out if Cindy from the gym is a friend or foe.

Twitter | @krismcdermott

For now, I'm just assuming foe.

9. Now that we think about it, if you have no concept of the books, those Hogwarts ghosts are just kinda there. 

Twitter | @mollykat3

They also have a grand entrance, and they all show up at once for no apparent reason. Touché.

10. Exactly the same thought I had when I was reading the first book, except without the cursing. I was 11 at the time. 

Twitter | @lauragracew

However, the passion was the same.

Hey, Harry, here's the magical land that you get to explore, but you have to go back to being treated like garbage in the summer. Have fun!

11. "Just curious, what happened to the previous teacher in this position?"

Twitter | @Elisabitz

"Well, one was housing Lord Voldemort in the back of his head, another had a memory spell backfire on him, one was a werewolf—"

"Okay, thank you. I'm going to pass."

12. Hate to break it to ya, bud. 

Twitter | @Spencat

Yeah. We didn't want to believe it either, but it sure is the case.

I really don't want to tell you about Fred and George...

13. Always, always minus the swords. 

Twitter | @ctsmth04

Life-sized board games would be the most amount of fun; however, I would absolutely draw the line when it comes to Hungry, Hungry Hippos.

14. The answer would be "no," because vampires can only be killed with a wooden stake.

Twitter | @arco5986

Too soon?

Cedric didn't really stand a chance. At least Edward Cullen would have tried to pull a smoldering look to distract Voldemort.

15. 'Fraid not, my friend. 

Twitter | @PaulGoebelShow

I'm going to go out on a limb and say this person was tweeting their point of view from Chamber of Secrets Dobby, because they absolutely would not be asking this question by the end of Deathly Hallows Part 1.

*small quiet sobs*

16. I ask myself this question every single day. 

Twitter | @emiliana_1

It's the one house that literally has no relevance in the movies. Everyone else plays a part.

It's also the house that everyone gets upset when they're sorted into it. I hope that answers your question.
