We are celebrating 20 Years of the Lexicon with a Twentieth Anniversary Canon Celebration!

“‘I welcome the opportunity to uphold our finest Wizarding traditions and values—’ Like committing murder and cutting off people’s ears, I suppose! Snape, headmaster! Snape in Dumbledore’s study—Merlin’s pants!”
-- Hermione Granger (DH12)



For Americans: In British English, "pants" means "underpants", not "trousers".
