Things I learned today: first, Neville Longbottom (aka real-world muggle Matthew Lewis) is on the cover of Attitude magazine. Second, "Attitude" is British slang for "body hair."

That shirt is definitely being put back on in this shot. Matthew Lewis is done here.

Actually, Attitude is a gay lifestyle magazine in Britain, not slang for sexy furriness, but you'd be forgiven for thinking that if all you saw was this spread of Matthew Lewis in his tighty-whiteys (he still has a cardigan on, of course. He's still British).

"If you noticed I'm wearing a toggle-hook cardigan, this is not the magazine for you."

The pictures have been tearing up the Internet and reviving lots of Millennials' teenage fantasies (by the final film, fans had already noticed that Lewis did a good job growing into his once-silly face). One non-Millennial who saw them, however, was the Creator herself, J.K. Rowling.

I also learned that J.K. Rowling has seen Daniel Radcliffe's wand.

Equus, in case you're totally uncultured, is a famous modern play where you get to see a dick. Horses are also involved, but they're blind so they don't get to see the dick. Anyway, after Harry Potter, Danny Radcliffe did the play and I guess J.K. Rowling went to go see it and was probably like "That's not how Harry's dick was in the books." Anyway, even though Matthew Lewis is 25, he was still bashful to have this mother-figure in his life gawking at his straining pair of briefs.

But, J.K. recovers and takes it in stride. Obviously, Dumbledore would approve of her accepting attitude (the only thing she doesn't approve of is strong women settling for the wrong guy).

Good work everyone. Pop culture moment achieved.
