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.
These funny movie synopses feel totally wrong, but are sort of on point. They read like someone who just started watching movies for the first time badly trying to explain a plot. It's fun to try and think of other movies you can sum up in just a few sentences with crude reductionism. Beauty and the Beast? A young woman makes friends with some furniture and falls in love with her kidnapper. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? Creepy rich guy lures families into a building and kills kids in front of their parents. Inception? A group of colleagues take some epic naps together.
Take a look at some of these hilariously bad (but not wrong) plot summaries, and if you want more funny movie-related content, try this!
Quidditch being the only sport I follow, I don't know a lot about Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Mike Evans, but I do know he's my favorite NFL player because of his epic Harry Potter groom's cake. Dude is apparently a huge fan, and he isn't afraid to show it.
