Two stone gargoyles flanked the staff-room door. As Harry approached, one of them croaked, 'You should be in class, Sonny Jim.'

'Ooooh, urgent, is it?' said the other gargoyle in a high-pitched voice. 'Well, that's put us in our place, hasn't it?' (OP17)


Br.: An old-fashioned phrase used when speaking to a man or boy, suggesting that he has done something wrong (OP17).
