OK, please don't hate me for this. I don't hate ALL Gryffindors. I just think the House itself is over-rated.
All the Weasley's were in Gryffindor. As they are the nicest people in the whole book, and love Harry, people love them. Therefore they love Gryffindor.
Gryffindors basicly owned Hogwarts when Harry's parents attened Hogwarts. James and Sirius mocked the living hell out of Snape, while their two allies looked on. All four of them just happen to be Gryffindor. Weird, hey?
How do you keep a Gryffindor in suspense? *walk away*
How many weasley's does it take to light up a wand?
Seven: Ginny to look upset and do nothing, Ron to sulk, Fred and George to blow it up, Percy to yell, Charlie to hold it in front of a dragon and Bill to roll his eyes at everyone.
How many Dark Lords does it take to light up a wand?
Two: One to light it and the other to kill him and take the credit.
THE "HARRY POTTER" SAGA is a magical tale full of adventure and magic. At least, it is for people who like to read books. For those of you who prefer your entertainment seared into your retinas through moving images, there is finally a film version in theaters. Use this cheat-sheet reference if you're a casual moviegoer confused by the strange world of Quidditch, Muggles and British children.
Harry Potter: The hero of the eponymous book series. He's the green, one-eyed monster on the movie posters.
Q: Harry Potter is the best! What are they going to call Book Four?

Q: "The Goblin of Fire?" Cool!
A: No, Goblet.
Q: Goblet? Like a cup?
Q: Ugh. Could that be any more sucky?
A: It could have been "Harry Potter and the Phantom Menace."
Q: So what's it about?
A: No one knows. Author J.K. Rowling didn’t want to spoil the element of surprise, which she feels is essential to creating the childlike wonderment one feels when encountering Harry’s world, as well as a...
1. Hermione is a girl.
2. Fred and George are identical when they take Polyjuice Potion.
3. If Snape taught Defense Against The Dark Arts, the only thing you'd need to study is whatever is on Page 394.
4. It's best to eat pea soup before it eats you.
5. It's not all about wandwork.
6. Don't put your wand in your back pocket. Many wizards have blown off one or both cheeks when they did it.
7. Wrestling a Fully Grown Mountain Troll will only get you 5 points.
Slytherins are evil.
Gryffindors are perfect.
Ravenclaws just study.
Hufflepuffs are useless.
I think we have all established that those are all completely untrue. This is called "stereotyping" and it is BAD. It tosses groups of people together and sticks a label on the lot of them, no matter that they're not all exactly the same.
