Confirmed: Hufflepuffs Really Not All That Special [Video]


Aside from its fallen hero Cedric Diggory, the Hufflepuff House at Hogwarts doesn’t have all that much going for it, does it? Come on. If we’re being honest. Okay, Quidditch. It has Quidditch. Kind of.

    BOO!  LOL  First of all, Hufflepuff had Tonks.  TONKS!  Who is ten times better than Cedric Diggory.  Second of all, and I quote: “You might belong in Hufflepuff, where they are just and loyal, those patient Hufflepuffs are true and unafraid of toil”, so says the Sorting Hat, who is like the Trash Heap of Hogwarts (Fraggle Rock reference, if you don’t get it, look it up :).  So poo-poo on the idea that Hufflepuffs aren’t all that.  LOL

    You know, I think the idea that Hufflepuffs are useless came from the
    Sorting Hat quoting Helga Hufflepuff: “I’ll take the lot, and teach them
    all I know.”

    Rather than meaning she would take all the “leftovers” from the other
    houses, I’m fairly sure that just meant she wouldn’t reject a student
    just because they didn’t have “brave deeds to their name” or other such rubbish. And remember,
    Slytherin said he would only teach those “whose ancestry was purest”,
    and that certainly isn’t true for Slytherin today, is it? (Snape,
    Voldemort, and many more I’m sure.)

    I support Hufflepuff! :)

    Here’s one for her:

    “I’m a good finder. I’m a Hufflepuff!”

    NO. I think Hufflepuff is the place where all the most interesting and free-thinking kids go. The ones who can’t neatly fit into one of three pat little labels. Maybe that’s where all the artists and musicians end up; Hogwarts has no artistic programs, but SOMEONE has to paint all those magical portraits. Hufflepuff kids are tragically oppressed, and no one even cares because they are too busy paying attention to the exploits of the Gryffindors.
