Inspired by the Internet: Disney Horcruxes

No HorcruxesI think I may be stepping into Spins the World‘s territory here, but there’s been some more genius #hashtag action on twitter, and I just had to share it! Plus, we’ve never really delved too deeply into Harry Potter nerdishness here on Mouse on the Mind, and I think it’s high time that I let that particular geek flag fly, don’t you agree?

So, for the uninitiated, here’s some background: a Horcrux is pretty much the worst thing possible in the wizarding world. Basically, if you’re a really, really bad dude, you can bind part of your soul to an object, which becomes the horcrux. Then, if you are killed or injured, you are able to resurrect yourself through the horcrux. If you’re the paranoid type (or if some kid with a scar is really hell bent on ending your sorry existance), you can make many, many horcruxes, which pretty much makes you immortal. Of course, that comes with a price: every time, you split off part of your soul, you become a bit less human.

Yea, that’s some pretty dark, nerdy stuff, huh? Which is why I pretty well laughed my head off the other night when my genius friends Kendra and Mark (probably in a fit of extreme exhaustion) decided that, by stuffing Duffy with her love, Minnie created a horcrux. A Disney Horcrux.

Of course, the Internet picked up on this bit of hilarity and carried it off until the last strains of laughter could be heard floating on the breeze from very far away. If you want to explore the full genius of this joke, search it on twitter. But for the lazy and un-twittered, I’ve gathered some of my personal favorite potential Disney Horcruxes below.
