Harry Potter Knows His Periodic Table

Many of you will have heard Tom’s throwaway line on a recent episode of … uh … something, I’ve forgotten what show it was … regarding Daniel Radcliffe’s ability to sing the “The Elements” song originally created by Tom Lehrer. It was close to midnight when Tom mentioned it (which, now that I think on it, probably means it was a Current Geek episode) and I didn’t think I’d remember to post it up here.

Thankfully, I remembered.

Radcliffe might still be a little bumbling and nervous in public – not surprising continuing the way in which he has spent the last decade of his life – but this gives the kid some serious props in my opinion.
