Does Ron Weasley Really Bring Anything to the Table?

By: T.R. Slyder,

I watched a few minutes of a Harry Potter movie on HBO. I've seen 2 or 3 of the HP movies and enjoyed them. But it just dawned on me: Does Ron really bring anything to the table? Does he exist solely to complicate things betwixt Harry and Hermione? Harry is obviously worthwhile, as is Hermione, who seems to be the female version of Harry and keeps him on his toes. Ron just kind of exists. If he weren't there it'd be obvious that Harry and Hermione are gonna end up together, so he's necessary only to make you question/wonder if Harry and Hermione really will wind up together.

Do you think if Harry Potter were written by a dude it would be two girls competing for Harry? It worked well for the Archie Comics.

Harry Potter is kinda like Archie, in that both involve a teenage love triangle. Plus, that HP actor who just got busted selling reefer looks like he could believably be nicknamed, "Jug Head". The similarities are basically endless.

I'm T.R. Slyder, and that's how you Tangueray.
