"As a law-abiding member of the magical community who does not pretend to be a great wit, I have often wondered why my fellow wizards feel the need to perform spells and charms in the name of 'fun'."

-- Ethelbald Mordaunt, letter to the Daily Prophet (DP1)

Wizard whose next door neighbour, Elladora Guffy, was overly fond of practical joke spells (DP1)


Madam Guffy has a habit of charming Mordaunt's garden furniture to do things like spin unexpectedly. Ethelbald sent a letter complaining about Guffy to the Daily Prophet (DP1)


No sense of humour.
