Even the Dark Lord may still struggle with tricky gadgets like baby tech. A recent tweet by FirstTimeDad captured the imaginations of many by conjuring the hilarious visual of an alternate beginning to Harry Potter's story:
Voldemort: I’m here to kill Harry Pott- [struggling to open baby gate]— FirstTimeDad (@NewDadNotes) February 11, 2018
James Potter: push down and then pull back
Voldemort: I am [still struggling]
Lily Potter: jiggle it he needs to jiggle it
Voldemort: I AM JIGGLING IT; You know what forget it I’ll come back when he’s 10
FirstTimeDad immediately won Twitter:
Yay! That’s why I do this! Pretend trophies! Allllll the pretend trophies!— FirstTimeDad (@NewDadNotes) February 11, 2018
🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆 I think that's all of them. I wonder what Lord Voldemort did for 10 years while waiting. I bet invented the recorder.— KarateAndPopTarts (@KarenReneK) February 11, 2018
The post reminded some Twitter users of another recent Potter-themed tweet:
FOUNDER OF HOGWARTS: okay, so we all know there are four types of kid. brave, smart, evil and miscellaneous.— Carl Kinsella (@TVsCarlKinsella) August 6, 2016
SCHOOL BOARD: yes, continue.
As we all know, babies have power Voldemort could never understand:
If only this were the way things actually happened...
Regardless, Twitter users loved FirstTimeDad's take on HP.

All books and movies must be turned in for edits, so please bring your copies of Harry Potter to a bookstore right away.
This is actually what happened. They just changed it in the movie. Read the books, y’all.— Laura Silverman (@LJSilverman1) February 11, 2018
