Hogwarts for Muggles

Just a quick oddity for Monday morning. If you've ever dreamed of attending Hogwarts, and learning the craft of Wizardry surrounded by the grandeur of a centuries old institution. If you long for the comfort and camaraderie found in the houses of Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or even (Heaven forbid) Slytherin...then this is probably just going to be disappointing, but it's the best you're going to find.

For a nominal fee (dependent upon age), you can enroll in the Grey School of Wizardry. You'll be sorted into a house or lodge, participate in extracurriculars such as the Defense Against the Dark Arts or Tower of Babel Language Clubs, learn skills including Alchemy and Divination, and maybe even be Head Boy or Head Girl, all from the comfort of your own computer.

That's right. It's all online.

And yes, it's for real.

Oberon Zell-Ravenheart
Oberon Zell-Ravenheart is the real-life Dumbledore and founder of the school. He's also known for creating a unicorn out of a goat back in the seventies. This is the second phase of a vision to make Wizardry available to the masses. The first part was the publishing of his Wizarding handbook, the Grimoire. Graduates of the school are considered Journeyman Wizards.

So, there you have it. Hogwarts for muggles. You're welcome. Happy Monday, and don't forget to show your school pride!
