I ain't afraid of no ghosts

Ghosts Sheila and Thomas Wotsit, from the seventeenth century, have both said they aren't really bothered with it all this year.

Thomas said: 'Lookee here, sir, this is a bit of a rum do, and no mistake. Time was, with a well blown-out candle, a bit of banging around in the loft, and some low-level mists, you could scare the bejesus out of anyone, but with Covid, the government, and everything people think, oh a ghost...Just what I really need now.'

'I mean, I watch the news on the television, it really is a wonderful thing, isn't it?' said Sheila. 'And if I hadn't lost my good eye in that accident, I could enjoy it a bit more, but I see what is happening in America. I mean, they gave that living scarecrow unlimited power. It is no wonder that what Thomas and myself do no longer cuts the mustard.'

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
