"What makes you think they were bad?" the first spirit asked.

"If they weren't bad, why would their parents punish them by making them sit through this movie?" "Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho!" the pair chuckled.

"In the Muppet Show, Statler and Waldorf criticize the other skits and other Muppets with bad jokes," Karma explained.

"Did she say our jokes are bad?" the first spirit asked.

"She only says that because she hasn't seen the film to compare the jokes to!" "Oh, ho, ho, ho, ho!"


Thank you for this, those two are classics and I love them.


Hehe, believe it or not, those two have been in the Whateley Bible since the beginning, we only just got around to them.

We've seen them before, but I don't remember where. I can't find them in the Wiki, but this is not their first appearance.

Laura needs to gadgeteer the hell up and build herself a caffeine-injecting shock-delivering watchband. Sooner rather than later. Otherwise Bailey's liable to conspire with Bianca and Morgana on an alternative solution. Maybe she'll just get herself a Pillow of Silence, but maybe she'll opt for having them add a flip-and-drench option to Laura's mattress. Best not to gamble.

I wonder if Karma picked up a passenger from the cloak and staff she found.

Maybe a small rolley bot that when she doesnt turn off her alarm rolls up and injects her with a massive dose of devisor coffee

I love watching their innocent little faces smiling happily as they trip gaily down the garden path, before finding the pit with the rusty spikes.

I think they showed up in one of Anna and Jerry's dates in "Straight from the Squirrel's Mouth", but I'll have to check.

As for the (very likely IMAO) theory that Karma is a probability warper, I find it interesting that this is set almost three weeks before "The Trouble with Karma", and no one (including Karma and Imp) had figured out that she'd manifested already, at least partially. That could be some Teela Brown level odds mangling, if her power is actively keeping people from noticing it. Though unlike Teela, she does have some sense of self-preservation, so I dunno.

Especially if it influenced the nickname-turned-codename her mother gave her, from before she had actually manifested... time travel isn't allowable in WA (for anyone other than a GOO, that is, and even the one time we've seen it happen, Gothmog admitted that he was bending the rules in doing so), but what about advance-motion probability waves?

In "The Trouble with Karma", towards the end Karma states "I can manifest,” Karma protested. “Just don’t tell Mama…”

That is very odd phrasing ("can manifest", not "have manifested"), but does indicate that Karma thinks she has powers.

I have never thought about that phrasing before. Could it be that Karma has a Roulette-like selection of powers, without the burnouts?
