Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows - Part 2

Yesterday we blogged a couple of Harry Potter quizes, and today we have a couple more for you.

This one is from our friends at “Mental Floss”.  In honor of the final “Harry Potter” movie, we try to sort through the jumbled Latin nonsense the characters use to make magic, and medical terms for body parts.  Here we go:

#2.)  Infundibulum. (in-fun-DIB-u-lim)

#4.)  Furnunculus (fur-NONE-cue-lis)

#5.)  Piertotum Locomotor (peer-TOTE-im lo-co-MO-tor)

#6.)  Cauda Equina (COW-da eh-KWE-nuh)

#7.)  Levicorpus (leh-vee-COR-pis)
