Miscellaneous, Nerdery

10 Points from Gryffindor, But $37 in Singles For Them


I feel very safe in stating that this is, without a doubt, the finest Harry Potter-themed pole dance you will see all day. And that’s the despite the fact the girl in question doesn’t do any stripping; LethalBlonde0911 (as so named by her YouTube account) works the pole like… well, like it’s magic. Seriously. I mean, I admit I’m no connoisseur of pole dancers, but she’s certainly the most impressive I’ve ever seen; I’m sure she cast “Expectio Boner” in several viewers’ pants. Thanks to Neil S. for the tip. Gentlemen, you may now flood the comments with filthy, filthy Harry Potter jokes.
