Eat Your Heart Out, Sorting Hat

John's been making custom Hogwarts House banners for group members over on Fans of Epbot the past several days, and now we've brainstormed enough funny ones that I think they have to be shared.

Each graphic is a transparent .png, so just download your favorite and use any image program to layer it over your profile picture. We made 3 options for each House:















Which is your favorite? Mine's "Obviously." Ha! And if you have suggestions for more tag lines, feel free to share them in the comments. (These are actually really fun to come up with.) I'm sure if you make John laugh hard enough, he'll make more.

Oh, and since I'm married to John, I get my own CUSTOM custom House banner to go with my Monty Python-themed profile pic:

AW YEAH MARRIAGE PERKS.

    ReplyDelete
  14. These are awesome! And yes... The Book Was Better.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Slytherin: Wait until my father hears about this.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The "obviously" is the best one lol.
    But I find "the book was better" so much more me. I do that more than a little bit ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love these! "The book was better" is definitely me.

    ReplyDelete
  18. All of these are fantastic. Hufflehugs for all! (But especially for John. Thank you, John!!)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Slytherclaw: Young, scrappy, hungry.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ah, the "You wouldn't understand" is perfect. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  21. These are great!

    Mine would be "Ravenpuff" (or Huffleclaw): The book was better, but I finished it and now I need a hug.

  22. Love the "the book was better" and "plans are for wimps". No, plans are for living (for all the 0 times they actually work).

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, so awesome! (Both you and the .pngs!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm Slytherin, and that "Obviously" one is absolutely perfect! Thank you for sharing these!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bwahaha...Pottermore keeps sorting me into Gryffindor, but I still think I'm more Ravenclaw. And that "The book was better" one just proves it!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Is it too Ravenclaw to mention that the question mark goes outside the quotation marks in the second one?

    ReplyDelete

    1. It depends if you're using British English or American English. I think. Most likely. Probably.

      Delete
    2. I only edit in American English, so... *shrug*

      Delete
    3. Okay, so this made me go look it up, because I wasn't sure, and I've figured out why. The US vs UK inside vs outside is true for periods/full stops. Otherwise, other punctuation goes inside the quotation mark if it's part of the quote, and outside if not. So, John...I have to go with Arthemise on this one. https://www.grammarly.com/answers/questions/4726-quotation-marks-and-other-punctuation-inside-or-outside/

    4. Hey, I will gladly change it. I'm all in favor of logical punctuation. But I guarantee someone will complain. In the famous words of Abraham Lincoln:,;"Grammar is stupid, isn't it?".!

      Delete
  27. The book was better is my favorite. It's so Ravenclaw. And although I do agree with Arthemise regarding the "?, it's okay, john (the hubby of Jen) we Hufflepuffs still love you. :) Here's my suggestions for Hufflepuff: #selflove, You're welcome., We have toast.

  28. I love these. I totally went and updated my profile pic with a Ravenclaw frame.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm thinking of Ravenclaw: Another word for genius

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm Hufflepuff, but I like Ravenclaw's "The Book Was Better" so I'm taking that one. Until John comes up with some more!

    ReplyDelete
  31. *giggles* Ever since YOU (yes. it should sound a bit like an accusation!) shared the Very Potter Musical all I can hear in my head is "Hufflepuffs are particularly good finders!"

  32. Griffynclaw: At least I know how badly wrong this could go.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Poor Puffs. I know you're trying to be funny, but "The Rest." Is just kind of mean. Hufflepuffs aren't the leftovers. They're the loyal ones. The patient and hardworking ones. The ones who value friendship over bravery, or intelligence, or ambition. They're the peacekeepers. Hufflepuffs are the ones who'll stay up all night drinking tea with you just to make you feel better. It just feels like you didn't try as hard for the Puffs on this.

    The rest are amazing though. And I'm totally using "The book was better." <3

    1. Hi Carrie! I'm the proudest Hufflepuff there is and will gladly tell you why we're the best house. That said, "The rest" is a quote from the book where all the other founders are saying which amazing students they'll take and Helga Hufflepuff says, "...and I'll take the rest!" I don't think "the rest" is a bad thing. Personally, I think "D. All of the above." is the best in describing us because the sorting hat knows we have attributes of all the houses and doesn't want to define us. All that to say if you have some other clever ideas, I'd be more than happy to add them. -john

    1. Brilliant lyra! Love this. My fav in the list was plans are for wimps!

      Delete
  35. I love these! I love them a lot. I'm a Gryffindor and my dog is a Slytherin per the Pottermore quiz and I really want to use these. XD

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't Harry Potter so I don't have anything funny to add. Would be fun to know what a Raverin would say. (I have taken many, many, many, sorting quizzes. The Pottermore says Slytherin while most of the other say Ravenclaw. The one that is the hybrid one said Raverin so I go with that when I'm asked and have nothing else to add to the Potter conversation.)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh I REALLY like yours! In fact, I think if you could talk John into them I'd love to see more crossovers. Raverin's good, Slytherdor? Huffledore? Raverdore? Ravenpuff? Slytherpuff?? Slytherclaw?

  38. Huffleclaw here! "Friends close, enemies closer"

    ReplyDelete
  39. For Hufflepuff--"Particularly Good Finder"

    ReplyDelete
  40. GryffinPuff's unite! Later. Maybe.
