It's another year at Hogwarts (urm, some mythical extra year around book five, I think) and it's time to answer the most interesting question of any Harry Potter book: who *is* the latest Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher? The answer? Professor Colbert! Let's all give him a round of applause.

As you all know, I don't read a lot of Harry Potter fanfic (well, okay, back when I wrote this review I wasn't reading a lot of HP fic), but the premise of this story caught my eye and I decided to give it a shot. Man am I glad I did. Even though I've never seen The Colbert Report, I could guess what a typical show is like by the way he runs his Defense Against the Dark Arts class. The Word? Voldemort! Threat-Down #5? House-Elf Liberationists! And let's not forget the big interview (I'll let you read the story to find out who that one is). A great fic for anyone wanting a bit of snarky, sly humor.
