The Port Foozle Psychic Friends Bureau was another of the "bogus carpetbaggers" which had sprung up in the place of magic following its collapse in 966 GUE.

Despite the frauds, Lucy Flathead, who worked here in 1048 GUE, was the only authentic telepath that had ever been employed here. She never let on to the others at the Bureau that she was an actual telepath, partly out of a kind of professional courtesy (because, according to her, they were scalawags and scams and she did want them to feel badly that she was not) and partly because she was embarrassed if people knew that she knew what they were thinking, especially the men.
