Humor: At Hogwarts

"The Animated Objects" by Cecile Leducq of à Poudlard ("At Hogwarts")

Evidently, the French translation of "Hogwarts" is Poudlard, a shortening of "Pou du lard," which means "hog lice."  This cheeky webcomic imagines life in a magical school if that school were populated by actual teenagers, rather than adorably forthright storybook characters.  

On the website, all of the comics are in French, with English translations that appear when you roll your cursor over each image.  It's actually more fun that way, because you can try to guess what they're saying in each comic before reading the English version.
