FURTHER MISTAKES AT THE MINISTRY OF MAGIC
Professor McGonagall now placed a three-legged stool on the ground before the first years and, on top of it, an extremely old, dirty patched wizard's hat. The first years stared at it. So did everyone else. For a moment, there was silence. Then a long tear near the brim opened wide like a mouth, and the hat broke into song:
"What?" said Bill, Charlie, and Percy together. "Harry's wand?" said Fred.
"Ouch!" yelled Dean Thomas after about ten minutes. "It got me."

Loud jeering, roars of laughter, and drunken yells were drifting toward them; then came a burst of strong green light, which illuminated the scene.
CHAPTER TEN - MAYHEM AT THE MINISTRY
Moody seemed totally indifferent to his less-than-warm welcome. Ignoring the jug of pumpkin juice in front of him, he reached again into his traveling cloak, pulled out a hip flask, and took a long draught from it.
