So, I heard a show on the radio just now, a mock debate about whether clowns or magicians are better. The comedian debating for magicians summed it up by saying, "Can you imagine reading a Harry Potter series where, instead of going to wizarding school, he went to clown school?"

Which got me thinking, what other schools might he have attended?

To play, just say what type of school you're imagining, and give a few book titles:

Harry Potter goes to Clown School.

Harry Potter and the Improbably Large Shoes
Harry Potter and the Large, Red, Squeaky Nose
Harry Potter and the Squirty Flower
