So "Timothy" was picked up by the recorder. I wonder what the conversation will sound like?

You beat me to it, so I had to make my joke where I could.

Perhaps that room was unused for such a long time not because of some tragedy that happened in it, but because prank-loving ghosts made it too inconvenient to use.

Hmmmm . . .

Poltergeists are frequently associated with adolescents . . . usually female adolescents, but given the role reversals in Wapsi Squared, this time it might be with Timmy . . .

Which might explain why Mervin "looks" and sounds like Timothy, and if it's the kind of poltergeist that avoids its focus, that might also explain why Mervin left.

More like (no idea how to get the upside-down text) "ecuas yrrebnarc"...

That would go well with the turkraken being discussed in one of the tradition in the Pub section of the forum.
