Harry Potter + Book of Mormon = More Nerdy Goodness

My last post about Harry Potter seemed to… upset some of you.

Well, the Internet gods must have been paying attention, because the very next day they sent a video that combines HP with something I already love: The Book of Mormon, the new Broadway show written by the creators of South Park.

At first, I’m just a little disturbed by all the cross-dressing and the perky music. But then, I can’t get over the fact that one teenage girl wrote, produced, and performed this entire thing with nine separate voice parts. Impressive.

So I humbly ask your help in figuring out everything going on here. I’ll start things off: Harry’s blue bowtie and horse doll are references to Daniel Radcliffe’s two Broadway roles in How To Succeed In Business and Equus. But everything else is kind of a mystery to this poor Muggle.
