Geek Humor

(Intel Source: Gus Van Horn) I admit it, I'm a geek... but this made me laugh.

Speaking of geeky... since I don't expect a lot of reaction to this one, I'm going to turn the comments into a discussion forum for people who want to discuss the new Harry Potter novel. So --- WARNING --- Harry Potter spoilers possibly in the comments!

I personally think that Snape is actually still on the side of good, and Dumbledore might still be alive. For some reason, they need Harry to feel absolute hatred for Snape, so that Voldemort can pick up on it... maybe to get Voldemort to trust Snape more?

I'll admit that it's a minority opinion -- even in my house -- but I just can't see Rowling having Dumbledore (who's always struck me as kind of a Gandalf/Aslan-type character) be that wrong about something that important.
Over on the chat boards my kids are reading, they think Dumbledore might have a Horcrux (from when he killed the evil German wizard).

Dumbledore's "Chocolate Frog" card says he's most famous for his defeat of the dark wizard (German name) in 1945.
I was reading Time this morning, and they used the same comparison of Dumbledore to Gandalf and Aslan that I had used, but they brought up an interesting point that I hadn't even considered; both Gandalf and Aslan came back "from the dead". Now, Aslan was a clearly religious reference, and I've always thought Gandalf (as basically an archangel) was pretty much the same, and Rowling says she's never even finished the Narnia Chronicles or Lord of the Rings, but I think there's still hope...

One thing's for sure: If Rowling doesn't let Neville be the one to give Bellatrix LeStrange her comeupance, I'll be seriously pissed off!
