Ladies and gents, could this be the best Trivial Pursuit question ever?
What is eleven inches long and boosts Harry Potter’s popularity with the girls at Hogwarts?
his wand and hopefully something else =]
Uh, his wand!
His “magic wand”…. or maybe is that stick we waives around when he is doing a spell
His wand…the wooden one…the stick…the long pointy thing…the thing the magic shoots out of…there’s really no good way to make the answer not dirty, is there?
well having seen “Equus” it must be his wand and nothing else
What? The wand thing was getting old.
To actually kinda analyze the question, being a serious Harry Potter fan, it’s a weird question. Assuming the answer (which you don’t give us! ) is his wand (which is indeed 11 inches, made of holly wood, with a phoenix feather core) – then I’m not sure why the second part of the question is “boosts (his) popularity with the girls at Hogwarts.” Imho, it doesn’t do that. There’s no part of the books where that’s a factor… A question that would make more sense is “What is 11 inches long and connects Harry Potter to Lord Voldemort?” Still very hard to avoid being dirty with that one.
SO, my conclusion about the whole thing – the makers of Trivial Pursuit are AWESOME for going for the double entendre! You can never have enough double entendre, or chocolate.
I wonder if it has a scar too?
how big was the owl?
the answer is: Harry’s wand from Olivanders. It is made of Holly, 11 inches long, and has a Phoenix feather core.
