WWOHP Category on Jeopardy!
How would you have done?
I was just watching Jeopardy, and a whole category based off of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was in Double Jeopardy. They were literally the easiest question ever for a theme park or HP fan. My only question is why did the kids save it for last, they got all the answers....

I think I would have done good. I am a hp fan and have been to WWOHP a couple times.
What were the questions?
$400: Home of Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, this school is where wizards learn spells.
$800: Behind me is the hut of this gamekeeper and his dog Fang.
$1200: Moving books and a pensieve, this must be the office of this wizard.
$1600: I'm inside the Hogs Head pub drinking this signature drink.
$2000: Right here is the Weasley's flying car used by Harry and Ron in this movie, the second n the series.
i had a brain fart on the last one...couldn't remember the full name in the time allowed :(
All the others were cake.
Did the second question really read: "Behind me is the hut of this giant and his dog Fluffy"?? 'Cause that's just wrong....

The dogs name is Fang.... Fluffy is the three headed dog guarding the trap door in the Sorcerers Stone. I caught that right away too.
Actually, the question as phrased on the show and read by Sarah of the Clue Crew (she was in taped segments from WWOHP) referred not to a giant, but "the gamekeeper" and "Fang" was the name quoted, not Fluffy.

Chamber of secrets
Karly, you got question 2 and 3 wrong.
Poot, well I guess I don't know as much about HP as I thought.
Actually, she got #5 wrong too, because on Jeopardy, when the "question" is the proper name of a book, movie, song, etc., the title must be exact. So "Chamber Of Secrets" by itself would not be an acceptable response.
Following my Alex Trebek impersonation, we now return you to Mike Gallagher.
I know that mike but we're not on jeopardy are we? And also I haven't read the Harry potter series in a couple years.
Thankfully the kid on Jeopardy said Harry Potter along with it.
While I haven't read the books in almost 2 years, I still have a very fond memory of them. The last time I watched a HP movie was DHP2 at my hotel room a few weeks ago (it had HBO).
