We all know the Harry Potter series is loved by all ages, but, sometimes, the generations still may tend to be gravitate towards what we recognize from our own childhoods.  Example below:

  funny pictures of cats with captions

@Butterfly Boy, I saw it as McGonagall too, in fact I really couldn’t see it as anyone else, what with it being a cat!

@Gene Lin: How on earth can you not know who John Lennon is?!?!!?!?!? dies of shock He was part of the band “The Beatles”! Surely you’ve heard of them. If you haven’t I might just die of shock again. Then I’ll be double dead. Which is quite an impressive feat.

I’m over 60 and the first thing I thought of was Professor McGonagall. The Beatles were along time ago and Harry and friends are current and probably will be for generations to come.

I did not see John Lennon, and I am well over 40! I did think Minerva McGonagall when I saw the kitty!

the cat looks a little feminine, so I saw McGonagall, then John Lennon, then Harry Potter because his glasses aren’t gold-rimmed.

Cute kitty (love cats), but I highly disagree with the wording on the poster. Both my son (of course) and I see Harry Potter and he wanted me to post. I’m 45, and was only 14 when John Lennon died (and that means someone who is 40 was only 10). He is an icon – but the glasses are more relevant to Harry – perhaps it should say “over 50”. (and funny thing – in 1990, just around when Harry would have been 10 – I had glasses exactly like that!).

It does look a little bit like John Lennon.

I’m pretty sure both John Lennon and Harry Potter are my personal heroes, and is it really coincidence that they are both British and wear the same glasses?

Potterheads for literacy unite!
“Your” means “belonging to you”, “You’re” means “you are”. So the poster should read, “If you’re over 40..”. Come on people, we’re (not were) book fans – that means spelling and grammar should count for something.

That’s so cute! This kitten is either McGonagall or Harry or John Lenon! Most likely is McGonagall
