The Harry Potter film series debuted in 2001, which means we are a step away from its 20-year anniversary. (If the world doesn’t collapse, and nobody is entirely sure from what we’ve seen so far.) The truth is, as time has passed, only now do we realize how funny that spellbound universe truly was. So no Sirius faces allowed after this point!

If you haven’t thought of Harry Potter as an excellent source for jokes, puns, and one-liners, bear with us. Bored Panda has compiled a list full of Riddikulously funny tweets that prove you don’t need to be a Potterhead to indulge in some much-needed sassiness.

The list may come as especially enjoyable to millennials, since according to this research, the Harry Potter series “has had a powerful effect on the entire generation.” And who are we to refute science?

Bored Panda reached out to Andy McCray, the founder and editor at the website Harry Potter Fan Zone, to find out what it is about the Harry Potter series that clicks with so many people still today. The project was launched back in 2003 when Andy was a 14-year-old student from Canberra, Australia. It is now one of the largest Wizarding World sources on the internet.

Andy explained that Harry Potter has such a passionate and enthusiastic following because it embedded itself in the zeitgeist of the 2000s. “An entire generation grew up reading the books and watching the films, and the characters and stories have transcended the page to became part of popular culture."

”Moreover, there’s this entertainment and nostalgia factor to it. “The HP movies deal with themes — love and hate, good versus evil, overcoming adversity and standing up against injustice, finding inner strength — which are particularly relevant in the modern world,” Andy said.

For the millennial generation who grew up reading books, the Harry Potter world serves as a form of fantasy escapism in this increasingly hectic world.

Andy finds it absolutely natural that people would continue to make Harry Potter references online. “It’s loved by such a huge number of people that the characters, situations, jokes and references are immediately understood by a wide audience.”

Having said that, memes are also a vital part of 21st century popular culture. And “what better than pairing that with one of the biggest popular culture phenomenons of our time,” concluded Andy.

If it were D&D, it would be lawful good, chaotic good, neutral evil, and chaotic neutral. But then, I’m just a geek who overthinks these things.

Why don’t people get it, Slytherin is NOT EVIL! Yea there’s Draco and the gang but that’s just their personality. Harry’s sun (spoiler) is in Slytherin too and he’s not evil. Just wanted to day that

In our school, the classes each grade are divided into "a": (sports talents = brave), "b" (bilingual lessons = smart), "c" (the ones with no special talents, but some of them are also visiting bilingual lessons = miscellaneous) and "d" (the rest that doesn't fit anywhere, students devoid of any special talents apart from making the teachers' life hell = evil). My school is practically Hogwarts without all the magic.

Helga Hufflepuff believed every witch and wizard should have the opportunity to study magic. So those that were not outstandingly brave, clever, or cunning (but had a desire for knowledge, were kind and hardworking) were sorted into Hufflepuff House.

Hufflepuff are the rubbish ones, people. You can call them "hardworking" or whatever all you like - it's the house equivalent of the "good try!" sticker.

Magic cannot fix a physical disability. If it could, Worm-Tail could have grown his pinky back, Mad-Eye Moody could have fixed his eye and peg-leg, Bill could have fixed his face after it was savaged by Greyback, and Dumbledore, Trelawney, Moaning Myrtle, and James Potter would not have needed glasses.

A Knut is worth about one penny, a sickle around 30 pence, and a galleon roughly six pounds (eight US Dollars). Since Harry paid 7 galleons for his wand, that translates to around 42 pounds, or $56.00 USD; a heck of a deal, considering what it accomplished!

If you're basing your entire image of Hermione off the film adaptation, I'm all for this. If you base it off the book, there is *some* credibility to his doubt. Not in her not being asked, but rather there being credibility enough that it 'might' be believable for Ron to think that.

No, in a version by George RR. Martin, the Harry Potter series would be 20 books long by now, still not finished, and Harry dragging thorugh the plot in about year 3 of Hogwarts. Simultaneously about a hundred side characters that no one can remember from books 4 to 7 would have boring side stories in places no one remembers from books 2 to 8.
