[[caption-width-right:243:This wizard has seen YOU.]]
-->''The god-wheel of fate has stopped for all these kiddies on "yes." Yes in-fucking-deed, you will be a wizard.''

''Wizard People, Dear Reader'' is a free audio file by Creator/BradNeely that provides a humorous [[GagDub alternative narration]] of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'', meant to be listened to alone or in sync with [[TheFilmOfTheBook the movie]].

Much of the humor comes from Neely's modifications to many characters and plot elements, as well as his [[LemonyNarrator distinct style of narration]], including obnoxious hyperbole, awkward similes, and the tendency to get gradually more vulgar as the movie goes on.
----

** An even funnier example comes during the climax of the story, where [[spoiler: Harry finally defeats his dad.]]
--> [[spoiler: "I am gigantic! I am important and unavoidable! For anyone that shall traverse this world, I shall be what they have to go through! This game is over when Harry says its over, and no one else! Harry is the one who kills around here, and Harry has killed you! I killed you, Dad!]]

* BrickJoke: "I've got some horses to look after."
* ClusterFBomb: Harry's near constant stream of profanity during the Cribbage match. "FUCKWORD AFTER FUCKWORD!"
** When Hagrid recounts how he told a mysterious stranger about putting Fluffy to sleep, Harry reacts as follows: "What? What could have made you say that? What do you think this is, a fucking free-for-all of facts? Why don't you go and get on the school PA, and tell everyone [[spoiler: my dad is Val-mart, and I'm half-Dracula...]] What fucking good are you? Why don't you learn to keep a God-damn secret you hairy piece of shit?!"
* DeathIsCheap: [[spoiler: Harmony dies.]] Very briefly. So quickly, in fact, that you can't even see it.
* DistaffCounterpart: Snake is the DistaffCounterpart of...the Snape from the actual movie.
* DubNameChange: Just about everyone.
* EatsBabies: Dumbledore, according to Val-Mart
* FatBastard: Harry's Uncle Saltporker and cousin Roast Beefy (also known as Ragtime Roast Beefy, Roast Beefy-Weefs and Roast Beefy O'Weefy).
* FauxlosophicNarration: When Brad Neely isn't shouting fuckword after fuckword, at least.
* GagDub
* AKindOfOne: Val-Mart is "a Dracula".

* NayTheist: Ronnie the Bear looked upon the gates of Heaven and rejected God, claiming Heaven is for those too weak and frightened to face the black nothingness.

** And for Dumbledore: "We will find. That fucking troll. And we will kill. Its fucking ass."
* PurpleProse: Parts of the narration are so purple, you may go blind.
* RunningGag: Pretty much everything Brad Neely ever says, but especially his tendency to rename characters, often inconsistently.
** Also, the alcoholism of nearly every character. And Harry's love of small horse figurines.
--> 'Oh, how the wine talks...', 'Harry produces many a wine-out-of-nowhere spell, and is drunk every day before noon..."
* SeriousBusiness: "Cribbage."
* TheUbermensch: Harry, of course.
* UnreliableVoiceover: Wait, I don't see any whiskey flasks...
** If you are watching the screen as the gang passes Cerberus, you might be skeptical of Neely when he says that The Wretched Harmony is being mauled to death, since on screen she appears to be perfectly fine.
--> 'Its so fast, dear readers, that you guys can't even see that it just goes right ahead and takes a big chunk out of Harmony. He bites what is most of her head off. She is dead in an instant.'
