Hogwarts Pineapple Express

by SHELL SHERREE

Unfortunately, most of the good potshots have probably been taken by now about one of the stars of the Harry Potter movies allegedly being arrested for possession of ... pot. {In fact, you'll find this post to be rather brief because I'm desperate to finish it before my own title is snaffled.} For instance, such headlines as these are just waiting to happen if they haven't already:
  • Harry Pothead {Definitely taken! Read the full story here.}
  • Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stoned
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Reefers
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Hashkaban
  • Harry Potter and the Acapulco-Gold-Goblet of Fire
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Hashish
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Baked Prince
  • Harry Potter and the Doobie Hallows

Nineteen year old actor Jamie Waylett was taking a drive in his Audi with a mate when he was allegedly pulled over by the police after a tip off. After reefing open a door and allegedly finding eight bags of Turner and Hooch in the vehicle, the police locomoted over to his family home and inspected the joint. They allegedly found a hydroponics experiment in his bedroom {apparently a successful one: a skill that could come in handy if he's assigned to the organic kitchen garden in the Big House}. His mother Theresa ~ no, I didn't make that up ~ was no doubt beside herself, though perhaps in possession of a better understanding of the recent inexplicable butter marks left on her cookie recipe pages, and the spike in her electricity bill. {I did make that bit up. Should I say 'allegedly' again?}

Ironically, Jamie Waylett plays the delinquent bully Vincent Crabbe in all six of the Harry Potter films. Could this be another troubling and unfortunate case of method acting gone wrong? Let's hope not. It could just be a storm in a herbal teacup.

  1. Oh, my. I missed this entirely. But that Crabbe was a bad seed to begin with. Still, I think there are better ways to succeed in divination.

  2. I'm with you, Margaret! Perhaps Hogwarts' groundkeepers will need to erect some "Keep off the grass" signs as a cautionary measure.

  3. Jamie Waylett: The lyrics are Eight Days a Week, not Eight Bags of Weed!
    Miss Mild Manners needs to address this situation! Too late. I've seen his photos. The munchies have won!

  4. I think they should put the whomping willow on the job.

  6. Hilarious, Shell! I tried to come up with my own but they're nowhere near as clever:

    Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secret Stash

    Harry Potter and the Half-Baked Brownie

    That's all I got...

  7. You are a clever wordtwister Shell! I confess to not only not having read any of the Harry Potter books but also to only having seen a couple of the movies once they were played on TV. I'm showing my age here am I not? So, is the Crabbe character the one with the blond hair?

  8. Thank you, Mme Benaut!

    Oh, not at all: you are ageless ~ though I'd be quite happy if reading Harry Potter books made me younger. I have a feeling you might be thinking of Draco Malfoy, the leader of the rather horrid gang. {I do love the word 'horrid'! Reminds me of Enid Blyton books - there, am I showing my age?} Crabbe is one of Malfoy's thugs: big, mean-looking dude with a buzz cut. Bad apples, all of them!
