A countdown clock for Hermione Granger's 18th birthday. That's not creepy at all!

Well... maybe just a little

The Countdown to Hermione Granger's 18th birthday continues!

1548 days, 23 hours, 18 minutes, and 33 seconds

The Bewitching Hour will soon be upon us!

I didn't see any mentions on the site of the actress who plays Hermione, Emma Watson, but there are a couple of pictures of her, so I'm not sure where exactly his strange desires lie.

And I've loved you for a long, long while
You raise your hand so high in class

You're not quite old enough and yet
My heart burns for you like a smoldering sunset
I certainly hope it's a joke, considering the poetry.

FWIW I can't say i don't think that the actress who plays Hermione has a good chance of growing up to be a very attractive woman, but it's a bit early to start drooling over her.

Hey scabbers, i'll give you some cheese if you bite him next time he's browsing Hermione porn online.

Christina Aguilera's body so that I could see what Hermione will
look like when she turns 18. The verdict? Dead sexy!

In just under two years she'll be "legal" in Canada and most of the U.K. (Three years for Northern Ireland.)

Anyhoo...

According to Wikipedia 13 year olds are legal in South Korea & Spain, and possibly Mexico and Japan.

Now I just have to get her to one of those countries.

The 23 hours, 18 minutes, and 33 seconds are a little creepy. But the 1548 days - that's bigtime creepy.

That's because there is only Hermione!
Emma Watson is the name Hermione uses to hide the fact she's really a witch, pretending to be an actor pretending to be a witch.
(don't spoil the fantasy! )

I don't see the Christina A. photoshopped pic...?

My favorite part is this:

I scanned these pictures out of my special leather-bound Hermione photo album. I have her future name imprinted in gold foil on the cover: "Hermione Nyffington."

The website is so out there that it is funny.....until you think that someone out there made this, found out all the biographical information about Emma Watson, including really wierd things like likes/dislikes, photoshopped an provocative picture of an underage girl, and has a leather bound photo album that funny turns to scary about....this quick.

If it is a parody, hahahahahahahahaha. Oh you silly Olsen Twins copycats.

But, most likely, if there is a sad old man sitting in a darkened room cutting out pictures and sticking them to his wall then

Hell how do we know the photo album is cowskin??

Am I the only one that thinks that Hermione looks a little too good to be a nerdy witch? I always pictured her more like the Granger (can't remember first name) on Recess.

He's evidently pulled it. I'm thinking he realized got farked and lots of people (taking the site seriously) are sending him threatening mail. The CA body + HG head pic probaly edged a little to close to child porn for his "it's all a joke" deniability purposes. You're not missing much, it was an awful photoshopped chop job.

It is Gretchen from Recess who is the nerd, but her surname is Grundler, and Grendler or something similar.....not that I watch the show or anything.

Gretchen Grundler it is, not to be confused with Ashley Spinnelli, or any other Ashleys.....

SCANDALOUS!

I guess my big hint was that he credits the "About Me" photo to The Onion.

You think? I suppose, but that Jeremy Irons thing she has going might only get worse.

If he honesty thinks that an 18 year old movie star will want to marry an old guy that has been obbsessed with her character since the movies came out, the guy needs to rethink some things. BTW, I have SO much better hair then she does. I bet she has frizzy hair. People only like her because she is famous. Pshhhhhh.....
