Hogwarts Teacher Jokes


Muggle teachers can be a great source of joke material, and a Hogwarts teacher is no different in that regard. Let’s have a giggle at their expense, shall we? Starting with Professor Quirrel. He’s always been hard to like, I find him a little two-faced.

Now, on to the greatest sport in the world.

Now, on to some more dark humor. 

Dark Harry Potter Jokes

These jokes are for those of you with a little bit of a twist in your sense of humor. The Harry Potter world is not all sweetness and light; there’s a lot of darkness in them, too. In keeping with that, here are some dark jokes for the more macabre Harry Potter fans out there.

I found the first four Harry Potter books to be quite light-hearted.

The fifth one was dead Sirius.


A lot of the characters in the Harry Potter series are wonderfully well-rounded. Ron Weasley is hilarious, Hermione Granger is someone to look up to, Draco Malfoy is a guy we really love to hate, and most of the secondary characters like the other Hogwarts students, the Weasley children, the death eaters, and other wizards in Harry Potter, all well-written characters.

But the Gryffindor house ghost, Nearly Headless Nick? A very poorly executed character, by anybody’s standards.


Why aren't there any guns in Harry Potter?

Because Hogwarts is in England, not America.


Everyone who died at the battle of Hogwarts missed All Star by Smash Mouth’s release just two days later.

It's so tragic. They still had so much to do, so much to see.
