Ron Weasley: "Women. They're easily upset."
Hermione Granger: "And yet, I doubt you'd find a woman who sulked for half an hour because Madam Rosmerta didn't laugh at their joke about the hag, the Healer, and the Mimbulus Mimbletonia."
Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger[src]

There was a joke about a hag, a Healer and a Mimbulus Mimbletonia. Apparently, it is not very funny as Madam Rosmerta did not laugh when Ronald Weasley told her the joke[1], though her lack of reaction could also have had something to do with the fact that she was under the Imperius Curse at the time.[2]

Behind the scenes

Hermione Granger: "But I don't get it. Hags aren't vegetarian!"
Ron Weasley: "What?! It's a joke."
— Ron and Hermione[src]
  • In the short skit The Queen's Handbag Ron tells this joke to Hermione, however she did not get the point.
