Ghost detector

Ghost detector: Perfect for parties!

At first I thought it said, "Perfect for panties." Well, of course. Haunted panties are a problem everywhere. I mean, who doesn't have a raft of ghosts wailing through their underwear drawer? Dragging their chains through the socks, leaving glowing gobbets of ectoplasm all over the briefs or boxers, whining about revenge, about love that lasts beyond the grave, or threatening to drag some forgotten minor relative off to Hell, all that over-wrought superannuated melodrama ghosts seem to have ALL the time in the world for. Ghosts should chill. Ghosts should grab a brewski and watch some TV. Ghosts can't afford a TV? Well, then, ghosts should get a job.


SHUN

matata(ku)
meaning: flash, twinkle, blink

瞬間 == junkan == (noun, adverbial noun) moment, second, instant
瞬刻 == shunkoku == (noun) moment, instant


Left radical is 'eye' (目). The bottom right radical means 'opposed feet'. Henshall suggests taking the upper right elements as 'hand' and 'cover', and as a mnemonic: 'In blink of an eye, hand reaches down to cover splayed feet.'
