This is definitely the little champ you wanted on your team in middle school when you were on a field trip, and you had to pick someone for 'the watermelon challenge.' Oh well, when at a cricket match right?
A group of college students had the real-life Professor Snape.
His name was Henry Lloyd Snape, and while he didn't wield a wand—far as we know— fawn after Lily Potter, or make a mad magical potion; he did claim his expertise in the field of Chemistry. So, he was pretty much the Half Blood Prince. Check him out, pictured in the center, below.
In The Irish Times, the real-life Professor Snape is described as uncannily lenient towards a dark but charismatic disposition, much like the demeanor of Severus as played by Alan Rickman in the 'Harry Potter' flicks.
What gets the bit between the teeth on the connection between Henry Lloyd and JK's Severus Snape, is Rodger's discovery of a recent lecture that was titled 'The Philosopher of Stone.' This immediately brings to mind the title of the first 'Harry Potter' book, 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.'
As a final resounding note we'll add that Henry Lloyd taught at Aberystwyth University, an old college building that had Gothic spires and turrets eerily similar to Hogwarts.
What do you expect? The young man's already a hunk and a half of a chiseled Spaniard pop star with gushy vocals that pretty much epitomize bottled up lust.
Coupled with his not so vaguely sexually expressive tour title: 'Love and Sex' Tour, undergarments were bound to fly.
Now we have the Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena shaking his head and barking that the women organizers in attendance at the show should be "whipped with toxic stingray tails", referring to an ancient form of punishment.
Sirisena described the women that attended the Iglesias concert as reportedly removing, then chucking their bras and panties up on stage. Sirisena went on to say this is the "most uncivilized behavior that goes against our culture." Apparently stingray lashes were administered on criminals in Sri Lanka. Like, nope.
Brought to you fresh and fried out of Lecanto, Florida, The Citrus County Sheriff's Office arrested a woman on shoplifting and drug paraphernalia charges. She was apprehended amidst a shopping cart fueled joyride out of hell.
The woman's been identified as Josseleen Elida Lopez, 25. Lopez was held after scarfing down $32.36 worth of food and wine. She told the authorities she's homeless.
If you're going to hit rock bottom, at least eat some chicken, and wash it down with some wine right? In all seriousness we wish Lopez the best on her road to recovery. Deputies disclosed to the press that they found two empty syringes after arresting Lopez, which she claims she used to inject crystal meth.
The Swedes are nuts man. In honor of upholding a Christmas tradition, a 25-year-old Swede set ablaze an enormous decorative goat made of straw.
The authorities are waiting to question the emboldened madman, likely hopped up on all manners of vodka, till he sobers up. Apparently the goat preceded Santa as the bringer of Christmas gifts in old Swedish tradition.
