If you are a muggle who is obsessed with the fandom, you will be entertained by Snape’s satirical comments.

You do not need to be a Death Eater to follow Voldemort.

The mischievous minions, made famous by the goofy animated movie “Despicable Me,” share their quirky sense of humor through memes and their gibberish language. No matter what kind of humor you have, scroll through the minions’ feed for a good laugh.
