101 Things Not To Do At Hogwarts
Compiled and created by jynkyg and The Fat Chipmunk
The Weasley twins' legacy has inspired some hopeful new pranksters – most of which include the socially unaware, mentally defiant, and of course, the tragically naïve. And since Filch has been denied his whipping rights, the seventh years and staff have taken it into their own hands to give students some advice and rules of what not to do at Hogwarts.
Most of these are readily available on the internet, and by no means are
we taking credit for any of them. (Well, maybe some of them.) But this
is merely a compilation of the hundred-and-one funniest "things not to do
at Hogwarts" we've found, posted here just for laughs. We also
apologize if anyone's already done something like this. Hope you
