before any of them could say anything else there was a faint popping noise and mr weasley appeared out of thin air at georges shoulder. He was looking really angry. That wasn’t funny, Fred! he said What on earth did you give that Muggle boy

“I didn’t give him anything” said Fred, with another evil grin I just dropped it…it was his fault he went and ate it, I never told him to. “You dropped it on purpose said Mr Weasley. “You new hed eat it, you new he was on a diet –”

how big did his tongue get? George said eagerly.

“It was four foot long before his parents would let me shrink it!”

Harry and the Weasleys laughed again.

it isnt funny! Mr weasley said. “That sort of behaviour seriously undermines wizard-Muzzle relations! I spend half my life campaigning against the mistreatment of Muggles, and my own sons –”“We didn’t give it to him because he was a Muggle” said Fred indignantly
