You can't claim it if you can't name it, I guess, Tarot. At least you haven't been "slimed" yet. Oh, can't say that....

There’s nothing destructive about Tarot
except, of course, for her massive ego
but, if they want to know why she’s this way,
it will be down the Rabbit hole they go.
She really wants to be the big hero
but usually becomes the great sidekick.
Convincing her to let her ego go
to save the world might just be the big trick.
X-men have trouble without Cerebro,
just like the Bat without his Oracle.
Will Tarot get annoyed at the result?
No fear, that question is rhetorical.

Sorry, Tarot. As Red Sox fans say, "Some you win, some you get rained out, and some you flat, ******* LOSE!!" Some times a lot.

Oddly would Tarot have been happier had Lois referenced the Forrest Tucker/Larry Storch version of GB?

Was that in Flying Circus? I thought it was from The Meaning Of Life. Not that they don't re-do sketches, but I don't recall it from the TV series.

That's the machine that goes ding. When there's stuff.

Wonder what batteries it uses? Maybe the manufacturer would pat for an endorsement from Tarot, especially after she defeats Eudoant and the forces of Pandemonium?

Very good work there, Tarot, you're also an inventor now. ;) Indeed, that device can be perfect for the celestials, helping them with filling that their lacking. :) Oh, also that name is used in Ghostbusters movie... Tarot is angry now, she doesn't like this element. :P

I have a feeling that Tarot is going to use that device to find Eudoant on her own and keep the discovery of his location a secret before sneaking away and confronting Eudoant herself. She wants to be the hero so badly that she might end up doing something that causes horrific consequences. :?

She should call it something with her name in it, like "the Tarotmeter" or "the Tarot Ghost Detector."

I have a feeling that she might think that it is too cheap and nonsensical so nobody would take it serious is the reason why she wouldn't do that.

She'll probably convince herself that since Sabrina doesn't want to help out with Eudoant, she isn't worth thinking about.

No, squirrel-boy, it's not gonna blow,
And Lois lets her disappointment show
At the lack of creativity in the names,
So then riddle this, who gets the blame(s?)

Ghostbusters snagged the names first,
Dang, isn't that the worst?
And since the meter really measures PKE,
Yeah, maybe- it seems to be.
You're a wonderful person! You can do this! Yes, you, person reading this!

I am wondering if Tarot hopes that the creators of Ghostbusters won't realize that she is stealing their names for her gadgets. Its not like she is trademarking them anyway.
