Good Lord. More on that broomstick business: “The broomstick is not only for flying. It’s also an important fertility symbol. To be blunt, it is a combination of the male and female naughty bits. As a fertility symbol it has to be treated with respect, and flying it the wrong way is like a sacrilege. Quite simply, you can’t fly a broom the wrong way. It just would not fly.”
This guy has just ruined the film for me. Instead of being thrilled by the exciting Quidditch scenes, I’m going to be thinking about, uh, fertility symbols.
