I do apologize. I meant, of course, that Housman is better than McGonagle. Needless to say a simple typographical error has thrown Rapparee into fits of glee, paroxysms of unmoored guffawing. It is clear the deep end of the pool into which he has thrown himself is not the gene pool. It might be the cess pool, I suppose.

MOM, Mom:

It is a well known and reliable datum in ectoplasm research that the standard fault lines inherent in a typical spiritual visitor (or "hant") are such that when shattered (such as by a sudden shock, introduction to a crucifix, or capturing by a Ghostbuster ectoplasmic ray tractor-beam) the average ectoplasmic construct shatters in to 10^12 parts.

Each of these parts still shares certain characteristics of the original construct, including the well known ectoplasmic vocalization impulse. However it will be appreciated that the magnitude of the individual part is dramatically reduced, being only 1x10^-12 of the original ectoplasmic construct. Therefore the capacity for vocalization is proportionately lower in amplitude and higher in frequency.

This sound, which can only be detected by specialized equipment sold only to licensed ectoplasmic researchers, is known as the picoboo.

I'll get me hat.
