scholars and rogues


stopsignApparently, there are people in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin who still live under rocks.

According to Time magazine, “a Harry Potter fan vandalized 80 local traffic signs to make them read STOP VOLDEMORT.”

And local police had no idea what it meant.

“It took a 7-year-old to tell us what it was,” said Police Chief Jeff Suter. “We thought it was just some type of new tagger.”

On the plus side, I am glad to know there’s a place in the world I can move to if all this “Jon & Kate” nonsense gets any worse.

  1. Oh snap, crackle and pop.

    Wouldn’t it be fun to see the brainstorming notepad from Police HQ when they were attempting to figure out what VOLDEMORT was an acronym for?
