Harry Potter Movie-Tie Part II: Revenge of the Lions

So, I know the rampant lion of heraldry is stylized, but there is a difference between ‘stylized’ and what’s happening below:

Ah, the noble snake-lion-monster of the Gryffindor house.

Ah, the noble marshmallow lion of the Gryffindor house breakfast cereal.

Ah, the noble blob of mustard in a field of ketchup left on the Gryffindor house table after a meal.

Now, has everyone seen the last movie/read the book? (If you haven’t, I don’t care, you’ve had three years to do so.)

We all remember the dramatic scene in the Room of Requirement, when the Slytherins have conjured fire-monsters, representing each house mascot? Who could forget the terrifying fire-lion?


And of course, everyone remembers that scene where Harry is transfigured into an anthropomorphized lion in full Hogwarts uniform:

Oh wait, there wasn’t a scene like that? Well, then the artist is just a little screwed up.
