There's ghastly... in rich, young snob Gloria Upson's ping-pong catastrophe ("Auntie Mame"):
"Mrs. Burnside, you could write a whole book about what happened to ME: Bunny Bixler and I were in the semi-finals - the very semi-finals, mind you - of the ping-pong tournament at the club and this GHASTLY thing happened. We were both playing way over our heads and the score was 29-28. And we had this really terrific volley and I stepped back to get this really terrific shot-- And I STEPPED on the ping-pong ball! I just squashed it to bits! And then Bunny and I ran to the closet of the game room to get another ping-pong ball--and the CLOSET was LOCKED! Can you imagine? We had to call the whole thing off! Well, it was GHASTLY! Just GHASTLY!"
and then there's really ghastly (as in Obama's new healthcare law): The new law is a ghastly mess, which began as a badly misguided technocratic pipe dream and was then degraded into ruinous incoherence by the madcap process of its enactment...
