What's next? Harry Potter TikTok recaps instead of movies? Oh wait...

Internet is always full of surprises for those willing to look for them, but some suprises find you on their own.

For instance, here is a surprise you probably never asked for: a Gen Z "translation" of the first page of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

What's a Gen Z language and why does need a translation, might you ask? Well, if you don't spend several hours on TikTok on a daily basis, you will definitely need a translator to get the following:

"Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, liked flexing that they were very basic, thank u. Tbh they were the last people you'd think would be sus, because they were all fax no printer."

This is what the very first iconic lines of the Harry Potter saga look like in the viral version that lowkey makes us to actually read the entire book in that cursed language.

Seriously, what better describes Mr Dursley if not "a total Karen with zero chill and hella neck"? Since the Gen Z version only (unfortunately) exists for one chapter, fans on Reddit started to improvise and offer their own ideas as to how other Harry Potter parts would look in this language.

Harry Potter and Goblet That's Lit Af? It's either a must-read or a "burn it right now" type of book... maybe both.

You know what would be even better than an entire Gen Z Philosopher's Stone book? An audibook. Narrated by, say, Stephen Fry or Morgan Freeman?

If you feel that the first book was not ruined enough, you might want to know that the entire first chapter does exist, and you can check it out here – if you think you're sus like that.
