Muehlegger follows in the footsteps of the Amazing Randi

George Hansen in his article titled :"CSICOP and the
Skeptics: An Overview" writes:

"Use of ridicule. . . . Yet another example of
belittling the opposition is the subtitle of the first
edition of Randiís (1980) book, Flim-Flam!: The Truth
About Unicorns, Parapsychology, and Other Delusions." 
Quoted
from:http://www.tricksterbook.com/ArticlesOnline/CSICOPoverview.htm

Here Randi tried to associate parapsychology with
unicorns and other delusions. Muehlegger now tries a
similar tactic in her posting about the "purple
unicorn (with pink polka-dots)."

their right value; and unless a judge compares notes and
hears both sides he can hardly come to a correct decision."
