Harry Potter fans who can't distinguish between fiction and reality have been going on the Warner Brothers Studio tour and trying to do what's already been fake done: free Dobby.
This is a very sweet gesture that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. First of all, Dobby was already freed, by your hero, Harry Potter. Remember? Secondly, if that statuette did suddenly come to life and walk out of its case at WB with a pile of socks, there'd be no exhibit. Also, maybe give Dobby something else. It doesn't have to be socks. He's only got two feet. How about a jacket? Lots of light layers is the look for fall.
