Today's Word Problem

Welcome to another word problem posted as an educational public service. As you solve this problem, make sure you do your work on a clean sheet of paper so you can wave it at a nearby child in the hopes of imparting some of your math skills to him.

Answer to the last word problem: Eels. Since Jane was swimming, she had navigational issues with depth as well as direction. She eventually swam down to the bottom of the ocean and was devoured by eels.

Today's Word Problem

Use the following chart in your solution.

Harry Potter weighs 108 pounds. Each rum & coke contains 1.5 ozs. of alchohol. After 4 hours of knocking them back with Hermione, how does Harry pronounce the name of his school?

Note: Your answer needs to be in the form of an actual word (or collection of phonemes), not the standard line of "with great difficulty."

He doesn't. As ohioan@heart points out. Harry Potter's a lightweight. He's passed out in a pool of his own vomit after four hours.
