"Want one, Granger? ...I've got loads. But don't touch my hand, now. I've just washed it, you see; don't want a Mudblood sliming it up."
-- Draco Malfoy (GF18)

Insulting badges handed out by Draco Malfoy but also worn by Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw members in a rare collaboration against Harry Potter when his name emerged from the Goblet of Fire, which was seen by other students as unfair to the first-chosen Hogwarts Champion, Cedric Diggory

  • On one side the buttons said "SUPPORT CEDRIC DIGGORY-THE REAL HOGWARTS CHAMPION!" in red letters that glowed brightly enough to illuminate the dark corridor outside the Potions classroom. The buttons changed magically to say "POTTER STINKS!" in luminous green (GF18).
  • After Harry won the First Task the buttons were not as common among the other Houses, but the Slytherins kept wearing them
  • The Creevey brothers tried to remove the "Potter Stinks" message from the buttons, but only made things worse when the buttons changed to "Potter Really Stinks" (GF19).
  • Ron was angry at Harry when he couldn't explain how his name got into the Goblet of Fire, and he was jealous of the attention Harry was getting in the Daily Prophet. One night Harry hit Ron on the forehead with one of the Creeveys' "Potter Really Stinks" buttons and said he hoped it gave him a scar (GF19).
