OK- I see the joke now. The phrase "too clever by half" comes to mind. Unfortunately, there are folks who think the whole thing is Satanic, without ever understanding what phrases like "expecto patronis" means or understanding the religious allegory tradition on which JK's stories are based (like C.S. Lewis' were).
