Summary: The Marauders find out what Jell-O is really made of.

Reason: Teehee......I felt like making a story. Oh and it's for Jennifer.

The Gryffindor common room wasn't very packed that evening. Mostly everyone had gone to bed early for Quidditch the next morning. Not Remus, Peter, James and Sirius though. There was still homework to be done and Remus wouldn't hear them not finishing it.

"Can we please copy off of you Remus?" Sirius whined flopping his Astronomy chart up and down.

"No, you have to do it yourself!" Lupin said as he finished his chart.


"Because I said so."

"Why did you say so?"

"I- just be quiet Sirius!" He finally shouted. Sirius, defeated, sat back in his armchair looking gloomily at his homework.

"It's alright Sirius," James said waving his left hand around, but only because no one would see him reaching into Moony's bag. "You know he'll crack sooner or later."

Sirius grinned as he watched James's attempt to get Moony's homework. He was pulling out the Astronomy chart......Yes! Nothing happened! He flung it over at Sirius.

"Thank you Mr. Jell-O man," Sirius said as his quill started scratching hurriedly. For some reason though, at this statement, everyone looked up.

There was silence. And then-

"What IS Jell-O made out of anyway?" Peter asked.

"You know, I have no idea," James said.

"I know," said Lupin. "But you wouldn't want to know."

"How do you know?" asked Sirius.

"I just know." "No you don't."

"My head hurts!" Peter said from the couch in confusion.

"Look Remus," James said carefully so as not to confuse the easily-confused Wormtail, "Just tell us and it will be our problem."

Remus was about to object, but everyone glared at him.

"Alright," he said defeated "But you won't like it."

Everyone was bouncing up and down.

"It's made of cow hoofs." Lupin finished.

Everyone looked shocked.


"Oh my green starry underpants!" Sirius breathed.

"You have green starry underpants?" Wormtail asked.




"You're lying!"

"No I'm not!

"Yes you are!"


"No, you shut-up!"

"Grrrr" Sirius pounced on him. The others had to wrestle him off.

"So Jell-O is made of cow hoofs. Who would ever think to make a snack out of cow hoofs?" James said thoughtfully.

"A Muggle." Sirius said a-matter-of-factly.

"Right, well, let's get up to our Dorm. James as to play tomorrow." Lupin said.

"But what about our homework?" Sirius said in mock concern.

"You know I'll do it." Moony said smiling.

They started to head up. James and Sirius still were packing they're things.

"So do you really have green starry underpants?" James asked.

"Well, they're more like boxers."

James cracked up. "Your such a nut!" he said gasping for air.

Sirius tried to look innocent.
