Hagrid's Parents?

This is Hagrid's father.




And this is Hagrid's mother.






So riddle me this Batman, How does Mr. Hagrid Sr. get his wife pregnant???



Drawings by LGL, according to scale and the descriptions provided by JKR.

55 paper boats came floating back to me:

And what the hell is Hagrid talking about when he asks Madame Maxime which side she got it from???
does he mean male giants can impregnate female humans?

Little Girl Lost said...

people i'm sorry for not being more regular. this will probably go on for the next month. i'm shifting to a different town and a different job (that i have yet to find). but Rivers will be back on track by september. that's a promise...

Amal Bose said...

amit

ok...FINALLY!!
I've often wondered about this too. I mean seriously. What was JKR thinking...maybe she'll answer herself...?
I think what hagrid meant by asking which side was indeed what u said...male giants and female human? Although i know it sounds impossible...but ... er... the vice versa is true [i know i know] and besides a drop of human semen contains about a million sperm and a drop is enough and we're talking about giants here aren't we.

I really want to watch Hp-6. Sit in the theatre with a freak friend and bitch about how the book was better :o) cos they always are!!

Anorak said...

well, i am having very weird thoughts about the possible reasons behind your questions....:)..........keep walking!!!

Aw.S.M said...

Drunk by any chance r u?? :P..or is it just the effect of watching HP6 ? :p

CoFfEe AnGeL said...

btw
the drawings are adorable and childlike. and they make your point excellently.

And Well.. WHERE are you going?!?! Moving to Kolkata by any chance?

Quaint Murmur said...

Hahahahahhahahahah that is the most hilarious riddle i have ever encountered, LGL. You are really something else. To think I've read all the books at least thrice and have never asked myself that.

*doubles over laughing once more*

Pradip Biswas said...

Harshita said...

sawan said...

ah!! all new characters for me :( and for ur qns, aint hagrid's dad holdin a magic stick in the frst pic? :P

Aniket said...

The magical world is full of such mysteries! May be he was a test-tube baby. :D :D

I loved the final book written by a fan where Harry marries Ron. Draco Malfoy turns good, kills Voldemort and marries Hermione. Sweett! :D

Roshni Mitra Chintalapati said...

Ok, barring the skimpy clothes, doesn't Hagrid's mom look a lot like Mamata Bannerjee?!!!

And regarding the union?! You just asked a very 'penetrating' question!!

Sucharita Sarkar said...

Ladders are useful things. They have helped many a Romeo to reach Juliets in their balconies, so, maybe, with a little imagination...

Karen said...

I have to smile at both the questions and the pics. Riddle me this? Funny!

Will require a special Olympics here....the winner will get something more desired than gold

SAHITYIKA said...

ha ha h a..
:)

Mahesh Sindbandge said...

Well i think i need to learn hagrid's story in HP series..

This puzzle seems to be more confusing that lord voldemort's parents story.

I think it would have worked out in the same way :-)


LOLZ...i dont have words..

BrownPhantom said...

JKR deserve to have the creative license :).
ANd where ae you nowadayz; waiting for your next posts :).

chaat paapdi said...

Who on earth is Hagrid? Rowling?.... Good luck with the job, I'm sure you'll land a great one. And since you're a journo, or seem to be one, please comment on my latest post- I'd like to know what you think. AND LGL add me to your blog please pretty please.

Manish Raj said...

Is it a bad idea to ask Hagrid's mother only ?

workhard said...

Ok.. girl.. that did not make any sense..

But

i loved the artwork...

its kinda cute...

artist in u i see...

workhard said...

Hey Good luck in finding a new job.....

Zeba said...

An amazing obervation. I made the same observation as well and found it very amusing, but kept it to myself though!!!

Hehe

joaquin carvel said...

"How does Mr. Hagrid Sr. get his wife pregnant???"

red wine, jazz on the radio, and a spontaneous weekend getaway to a cozy lakeside inn. and maybe a snorkel.

that'd be my guess.

Lena said...

I wonder from where do people get such ideas? :D

Dhruva said...

Now this is something I've always wondered about half-giants (and other such largely disparate blended races in fantasy fiction).

These physics can still be worked out (Check you spam, they know how.); just imagine if the races of Hagrid's parents were reversed.

But then again, it's fiction. That too, fantasy fiction.

The Blue Periwinkle said...

hahaha...
good one :P

kaushiki said...

hii dere...u have a very nice blog...very cute drawing

NISHANT NISCHAL said...

LOved this post friend. :-)

Stupidosaur said...

Oh its quite possible.

The Hagrid's father pic looks quite like this guy

http://amritorupa.blogspot.com/2009/05/love-song-for-bhati.html

To you, that bhati is 'larger' than life. So Hagrid's mom should have been absolutely no problem ;)

Also Hagrid's mom in the last pic seems to be wearing a see-through. I guess that must've helped ;)

Besides, even boring old science has got things like artificial insemination. Here we are talking about exciting magicians and magic instead. They probably have spells for growing the whole body or 'parts of it' as big or small as needed, and also for creating babies without sperms and eggs.

That also answers your question in the very first comment above.


Come back here soon. (Though I may or may not) (Like it matters :P)

Best of luck for job.

The tree in the picture must mean something! hmmm

AMIT said...

All drawings pictures are great.

How to make a website

Sophia said...

Hello I want to congratulate to them by its site of the Web of the excellent looks like entertained and very good very to me it elaborated. I invite them to that they explore a little on my Web site.Cheap Lots in Samara Costa Rica

Jibi said...

To be real, almost everybody who read that passage would've wondered I know I did.

Till I got the answer.

Wizadry is quite handy you see, just a drink of Polyjuice should suffice I thought but the not being able to change to another breed was a pain.

Then viola maybe he was an Animagus who just turned into a Giant(also answers the attraction to the giants you see).

Magic is a wonderful thing.

Khyan said...

Love these drawings. Is it possible to use them in a video I'm making about the most messed up things in Harry Potter? See here for my usual output http://youtube.com/khyan1

Little Girl Lost said...

hello khyan... you have a hilarious collection of stuff... loved them!. am looking forward to your video on the fuck ups in HP. feel free to use my artwork, but be sure to give acknowledgement. :)
and if you want any more inputs/discussions on harry potter screw ups, pls get in touch. I am doing a thesis on this topic.

Khyan said...

Hey, I used those drawings finally for my video. It worked beautifully, I hope you enjoy the result. I credited you, too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCpHS6ip-5c
