The second theme in the Sirens overture, "Imperthnthn thnthnthn," is unintelligible until one begins reading the chapter and hears a testy exchange between the barmaid Miss Douce and the "boots," a young male servant in the Ormond hotel. She rebukes his "impertinent insolense," and he mockingly apes her: "Imperthnthn thnthnthn."
