I mean, look at this piece of fan-art and tell me that isn't the badassest thing ever:

thought i'd help with the official illustrations:

142.  Robert the Wee

143.  Robert Fits-in-a-Case

144.  Robert Eats-for-Free

145.  Robert Is-He-an-Elf? (The seven Silk brothers, all named Robert, were also known for their small stature and predictable bitterness.)

146.  Dennis Big-Ear Fox

147.  Jethro the Pagan

148.  Asterix the Gaul

149.  Black Bolt, King of the Inhumans

150.  Strictly Local Henry Bobtail

As a former high school English teacher myself, this one remains my all time favorite. 

I taught kids like this....if they'd put half the effort that they put into failing splendidly, they would have had straight A's.

i like how it's an Honors English course, too. i'd love if my students wrote like that. not so much the content, but the style is great. oh well.

those kids end up in college not much improved, unfortunately.


You wouldn't believe it.  If someone did a montage of it, they'd need to add Kate Hudson, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Harvey Weinstein (if he's isn't in it already) to it by now... 

i don't know what kind of moron would waste his or her time doing something like that...

By the way, it's spelled 'veritable.'   :-X

thank you, my professorly intern. you are progressing well.

oh, really? do you have a job where you routinely run into fabulous celebrities? a veritiable field of dreams?

awww, sweetie. don't be mad.

Yeah, I thought I remembered a PlayStation reference, but that's just about the only one.  And "PlayStation" means the same thing today that it did ten years ago, and, knowing Sony, it'll still mean the same thing ten years from now.  PlayStation 5, by that point, I suppose.  Twelve thousand dollars.

ah, but did it mean the same thing it did one hundred years ago, as you claim?

take that. score one for incredibly nerdy nitpickers united.

all you other doll collectors are cool. i'm just going after Rob. he's a geek.

Does it really matter, what year(s) the story takes place?  JKR was careful not to litter the books with too many pop culture references, which would have dated them (see the Shrek movies).  Throw out the 1492 mention, and the story sounds like it could be present day, and it just as easily sounds like it could have taken place a hundred years ago, or a hundred years from now.  It's really kind of a timeless story.

i seem to recall Dudley playing "Playstation" in one of the books. that was kinda stupid. but i agree otherwise.

well, he is pretty geeky. i mean, come on, collecting dolls?

what a geek.
