Harry Potter and the Unmentionable Metaphor

by on Jul.16, 2007, under Uncategorized

So I’m reading an article in the New York Times about the Harry Potter films. The basic point is that the books have delved into more mature topics as they go along, and the films have followed suit…with the directors contributing to the evolution of the series. And then I came across this quote:

“And now, in ‘Order of the Phoenix’, Harry finally discoveres that girls are an altogether different kind of chamber of secrets.”

Oh, my. Maybe it’s just me, but I think that’s a rather unfortunate turn of phrase. It brings such naughty images to mind.

“Hey, baby, want to get out my wand and let me into your chamber of secrets?”

Of course, given the state of HP fanfic, I feel certain I’m not the first to make this “connection”…but it still amuses me.
