I so love Craig Ferguson. It's Magic Week on his show this week:
"What is it with the Harry Potter school anyway? It seems that every year at the end of the year they have a totally unnecessary competition where the students are in danger of getting killed. Why doesn't Harry Potter just take the last WEEK OFF? I mean, here comes the Scottish lady teacher saying, "Come along children, we're going to have that perfectly unnecessary competition where you're all in danger of being killed! And by the way, it's magic week!"
