The other plays babysitter to a bunch of snot-nosed brats who are only there through the virute of Mommy and Daddy's pocketbooks.

Ian McKellen should never, ever, ever be reduced to that level.
NEVER.

(And spell his name right, or he'll smite you down. :D)

You did not read the thread.
I think they call it the "Skorb" effect.

I would like to see Ben Stein as Dumbledore. Seriously. I think he would be wonderful in the role.

You know Harry, your father gave me this broom to hold for you. For twenty long years, I kept that uncomfortable stick up my ass. :D
