Harry Potter and the Endless In-Jokes

Post by Sky Alton » Fri Jun 05, 2020 10:47 pm

Is there a Harry Potter quote, reference or joke that’s crept in to your day to day life?

Sometimes when my family are discussing what we all have planned for the day and I don’t have anything particularly noteworthy to report, I’ll trot out ‘and I’ll be in my room, making no noise and pretending I’m not there.’ It always raises a smile.

Does anyone else do anything like this?

Now that I've finished my laughing fit :lol: yes, I do that all the time too. The biggest thing I'll say is 'riddikulus' instead of 'ridiculous' in any conversation. I do get the occasional strange look, but people mostly ignore it. My sister and I will say 'obviously' in the Snape-like accent and we'll say 'Siriusly' with the insinuation towards Sirius.

:lol: In-jokes are the best!

Besides the drawing out of the word "Obviously", I also love to use "No need to call me sir" when a person is being particularly condescending.

My favorite though is to use "Dobby is free!" whenever I am done with a particular task, or someone throws a piece of clothing at me.
