Manic Monday Bonus--Least Necessary Expanation EVER!

Some things really, really don't need a scientific explanation:

Oh, come on, guys, is this the Handbook Of The Marvel Universe, or what?

Plus, if this interpretation were true, why wouldn't Superman just keep a tape recording of Mxyzptlk around to play whenever the imp shows up? In this story, for example, he uses a film of a prior visit from Mxy with the soundtrack "backwards," and that was enough to banish the imp. Why wouldn't that work EVERY time, if this "scientific" explanation is correct?

Kal-El would make that his ringtone, right? Give everybody in Metropolis an MP3 of that? Change the sound on Jimmy's signal watch?? Every 90 days flood the local media with the clip?

I'm just sayin'...

From Superman #131 (1959), as reprinted in Superman #206 (1968)
