Fans Try to Free Dobby With Socks at the WB Studio Tour in England

Prepare your feelings for this one, folks. Apparently fans have been leaving socks at the Dobby display at the WB Studio Tour in England. As we all know, Dobby is a house elf, and house elves are freed once they’re given a piece of clothing. So, fans have been leaving socks for the bloddied Dobby figure encased in glass displayed along the tour route at the WB Studio Tour.

First off: how dare you, WB, for putting the (ostensibly dead) bloodied Dobby on display. Come on, can’t we just remember the happier times? Second: We’re seriously hoping those aren’t used socks, because… oh, man. Gross.
