Oops

Hot on the heels of The check-up, maybe this is a reverse variation on the “pull back and reveal”, only with the joke on the subject, not the object (or something—how would I know, I just do fieldwork on Daoist ritual):

A medium is holding a séance. With a group of genteel people assembled around her table, lights dimmed [The room? the people?—Ed.], she begins, softly,
“Now everyone—before we begin, I just want to ask you, has anyone here ever seen a ghost?”
They all bow their heads in silence, but one geeky chap sticks his hand up and goes perkily,
I have!
They look curiously at him. He goes on,
“And what’s more—I’ve fucked one!”
Incredulous, the medium asks him,
“What? You mean… you’ve… fucked a ghost?”
He pauses, disconcerted. “Oh… sorry—I thought you said goat…”
