    Good morning Mr. Magpie,
    How are we today?
    And now you stole it, all my magic,
    Took my memories.

    "Morning Mr. Magpie", Radiohead (2011)

    Upset that he wasn't invited as a guest star for the Yule Ball unlike his bandmates Jonny and Phil1, Thom Thumb ultimately went to great lengths to sneak into Hogwarts: he simply drank Polyjuice.2 I mean, he could have found a more discreet way than bursting onto Dumbledore's office in the form of the Chosen One with his long-toothed mutant teddy bears... And didn't anybody ever tell him that the effects begin to wear off after an hour? Well, it was clearly mentioned in the book. But Thom is so (radio)headstrong, he always does as he pleases. Wingardium leviosa!3
