A Redditor Completely Unfamiliar With The Wizarding World Answers Questions About 'Harry Potter'

"I know nothing about Harry Potter, ask me anything"

Over on the subreddit r/HarryPotter, redditor u/GetExpunged made the following post: 

I have not read the books nor seen the movies, as far as my knowledge goes, I know Harry is a wizard and i know who Dumbledore is. I will make up answers.

As a result, redditors asked the dozens of questions and the answers were pretty hilarious. Here is a small sampling of that hilarity. Please enjoy.
