22 Times Harry Potter Wasn't The Brightest Wand In The Bunch

No one expects him to be Hermione, but all I'm asking for is a little common sense.

Posted on

1. Like that time our boy Harry tried to snatch his Hogwarts letter out of the air.

Warner Bros.

LOOK AT ALL THOSE LETTERS ON THE GROUND. HARRY. C'MON.

2. Or when he tried to convince Snape "Roonil Wazlib" was his nickname.

Snape: ......... I am not getting paid enough for this bullshit.

3. And when he bought LITERALLY EVERYTHING on the Hogwart's Express food trolley

What is everyone else suppose to eat now Harry??

4. This brilliant idea.

Just. Why.

5. That time he kept playing Quidditch after a Bludger had just SHATTERED THE BONE IN HIS ARM.

I know you have magical healing and all, but I still think that's probably bad for your body.

6. When he didn't figure out Remus Lupin was a werewolf.

7. And the fact that he can't even write a page and a half long essay.

8. When he thought it'd be a good a idea to stick his face into an unknown, mystical substance in his headmaster's office.

Warner Bros.

Did you forget that everything here is magical or...?

9. Or when his best dueling move was to STICK HIS WAND UP HIS OPPONENT'S NOSE.

You know that wooden pokey thing does spells, right?

11. And this one.

Hedwig: idk bro damn i'm just a owl.

12. That time he didn't even ask his date to the Yule Ball to dance.

13. When you realize he's a total jock.

14. And that he doesn't give a f**k.

Warner Bros.

15. When he opened Sirius's Christmas gift to him FIVE MONTHS LATER.

Turns out it was a two-way mirror that would have LITERALLY prevented all the shit that happens at the end of Book 5. Just open your gifts in a timely manner like everyone else, Harry!

17. And then took the whole squad on a thestral death ride.

They're 15...

18. When he performed random spells from the margins of a book, with NO IDEA what they did.

Warner Bros.

Oops.

19. That time he was feeling a little too sorry for himself.

21. When he couldn't just say "Diagon Alley."

Warner Bros.

So I guess we all know why our favorite Homeboy Who Lived didn't get sorted into Ravenclaw.
