Harry Potter fans beware -if you’re ever in the position to start a conversation with JK Rowling, best steer clear of any questions about the logic behind Quidditch.
Rowling revealed on Twitter that she has no time for Harry Potter who suggest that the only meaningful aspect of Quidditch is the seeker catching the snitch, as it grants the team 150 points, a seemingly unassailable lead, and ends the game.
The author said it was the worst way to start a conversation with her while stuck in an elevator, responding to a thread by Twitter user Mark Harris, who sparked a discussion about terrible elevator patter.
'Got a bone to pick with you. Why's the Snitch worth 150 points?…side that catches it always wins… makes no sense…' & on & on forever. https://t.co/JR8zrJbgeU
