Harry Potter, the hero of the wizarding world turns 33 today. Assuming he makes it through the next year, he'll be outliving the likes of John Belushi, Eva Perón, and Jesus without ever having achieved more than defeating the Dark Lord.

Nevertheless, in celebration of this milestone, Potted Potter's Dan and Jeff threw a little fete at last night's show, complete with a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday" and cake for the audience. Disappointingly, the cake seems to have stayed firmly under the pull of gravity.
