"Have there ever been two more wretched people than Mr. and Mrs. Twit? They're not just horrible, they're extraspecially horrible. Mr. Twit has a beard that houses every bit of moldy food that nearly made it to his mouth. Mrs. Twit has a glass eye which she likes to pop in her husband's beer, saying, "I've got eyes everywhere so you'd better be careful." But Mr. Twit can play tricks on his wife that are just as clever and nasty. The MuggleWump monkeys, stuck in a cage in the Twit's weedy, grubby garden, have been watching them play tricks on each other for years. Now Mr. MuggleWump has an idea for a trick of his own and he's going to make monkeys out of the Twits!"
