Ghosts aren't real, but it should be said.
It's time to bring the B-Team back from the dead.
Hey! Things are getting scary when Tory, Grant, and Kari
Come harder than Ray when that ghost popped his cherry!
We reject your flows and substitute our own!
Why'd you stop? I couldn't think of a rhyme.
Well, just say the first thing that pops into your mind!
