Probably the guy’s spirit trying to get away from the Ark park!

Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun.
Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike.
And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell.
And the last thing I see is my heart
Still beating,
Breaking out of my body and flying away,
Like a bat out of hell.

I ain’t afraid of no ghost. Especially a mere Class II apparition.


#5

but does bustin’ make you feel good?


#6

Who takes pictures of fatal motorcycle crashes from their truck like that? This is ghost exploitation!


#7

Ghosts don’t belong in this world. Trump will have to build his wall even taller, now, to keep them out…


#8

Note - I don’t have anything to gain from anyone else watching Nathan for You, but this show is great - and the “Ghost Realtor” episode is one of his finest.

Enjoy.

“the photo has not been altered.”

Riiiiiight. And I have a bridge in New York that I’d like to sell you.


#11

Do you have an unaltered picture of it?


#12

Yes! See - there’s a whole big group of ghosts congregating near the top of it!


#13

I should add that even if you have a picture of it, I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck. I’m not just going to buy some bridge like a sucker. Now if you were to start a Kickstarter project to build one, that would be a completely different matter. Just tell me wherw and when to look it up and give you money.

( I would need some proof that your Kickstarter is legitimate, such as a computer rendering, or maybe a sketch on napkin, or a picture of an existing bridge… )


#14

completely legit offer. you can have the bridge for one pot of gold.


#15

That was some brilliant expert level plunderphonics there.


#16

I’m pretty sure I discovered that vid in an old thread during my perusal of the site’s content.


#17

I have many unaltered photos of hedgehogs doing interesting things, for certain definitions of “unaltered.”


#18

Perhaps she can help me sell my bridge?


#19

Pfft. That’s obviously not a ghost, it’s a spectre. Amateurs get them confused all the time.

Thought I read this, and I was right.

A motorcyclist was seriously injured after crashing on Highway 15 near Stanton. He was transported to the hospital where he later died.

So he wasn’t dead on the highway, so I call fake. I watched enough cartoons to know for a fact, the ghost never leaves the body until you are actually dead.
