photo: Win-CAR-dium Leviosa?

Spotted this past Sunday while taking my morning walk. Harry Potter fans everywhere…

phrase LEVIOSA on a license plate, reference to a levitation spell from Harry Potter

Maybe the license is part of a spell that makes the car go faster.. or even fly?

Wingardium Leviosa!” he shouted, waving his long arms like a windmill.

“You’re saying it wrong,” Harry heard Hermione snap. “It’s Win-GAR-dium Levi-O-sa, make the ‘gar’ nice and long.”

“You do it, then, if you’re so clever,” Ron snarled.

This makes me wonder what Hogwarts study aids or cheat sheets look like. Do they casually float away when someone reads them properly, or burst into flames, singing students’ eyebrows when they pronounce the spells wrong? Then again, if they’d all been as adept as studying as Hermione, maybe they could have gotten the Marauder’s Map to work better. :mrgreen:
