Hufflepuff Pride Goes Gaga

Hufflepuffs have gotten a lot of flack over the years. It’s always been there, lurking beneath the surface; I noticed in particular when I [and the head editor of this site] found myself sorted into the house on Pottermore. Hufflepuffs are sometimes rumored to be the stoner house, the left-overs (or “spares”); we’re generally regarded as friendly and particularly good finders, and a lot of us are said to love badgers, but Hufflepuff’s identity has always been somewhat more nebulous than the rest of the houses. J.K. Rowling, for all of her infinite wisdom, instilled a strangely deep-seated house rivalry in many of the readers of her books, and it’s manifested itself most often in the parodies the series provokes. Like this one, a rousing call to Hufflepuff pride in the form of a song parody of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.” So ignore the fact that our most famous member went on to be a sparkly vampire, and simply marvel in how many different ways there are to make club outfits out of yellow and black.
