‘What do you mean I have to send more money to ensure next-day delivery of HBP?!’
Petunia: I wonder who it’s from…?
Dudley: I don’t know – all that’s listed are the letters ‘I’, ‘R’, and ‘S’…
Vernon: Oh… great. Lock the doors – we’re not coming out ‘til May.
Teapot: Are you tired? Cause you’ve been running through my mind all day!
Teacup: *Giggles* Oh, stop! You are such a TEAse!

Teacup: ‘You know, Kettle… if you continue to face that way, we’re going to have some problems…’
Uncle Vernon: ‘Oh, look! They’ve accepted me to kindergarten!’
Uncle Vernon: What’s this?
Dudley: It’s my French citizenship application. They sent me the hat last week.
Vernon: Hmm, so does this mean that Harry’s finally getting the death sentence?

Petunia: No, Vernon, it says we’ve just been audited $1 million…
HAPPY TAX SEASON!
Dumbledore sends Uncle Vernon an honorary invitation to Hogwarts upon discovering that all these years of malice and prejudice against wizards stemmed from the fact that he was deprived of having a unicorn as a little boy.
Vernon: ‘You must be kidding me – SPEW? What kind of an organization is that? Petunia, chuck it – I’m not spending a dime on them.’
‘…The Campaign to Find Snape’s Clothes?! What sort of rubbish are these new-fangled politicians up to?!’
Vernon: Oh, look! A letter from Warner Brothers Studios!

‘What’s this? Someone wrote this letter in green ink… Normal people don’t use green ink?!’

‘Son! You’ve been accepted to the National Boy’s Barbershop Chorus!’
Uncle Vernon: ‘It’s another postcard from Marge… seems she’s floating over the Himalayas now, and she’s only been mistaken for a spy plane twice!‘
Vernon: ‘Petunia – you entered the Best Hollowed Cheeks Contest? Why didn’t you tell me?!’
Tea Kettle: Oh no, I’m out of focus again!
Tea Cup: Yeah, tell me about it. This is horrible – I get all shined up for nothing.
Orange Juice: Well you can’t even see me. Thanks a lot, kettle… How do we go about getting a new director around here?
Vernon: It’s a poll that’s being sent out asking which month you’d like MuggleNet to have the caption pictures Photo-shopped…

P.S. Misters Monny, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, would like to congratulate the Dursley’s on being so incrediously thick and guilable that they would believe their boar of a boy would have any amount of magic at all. This message will self-destruct into vibrantly ornate colours and annoying noises in 5-4-*BANG*
