GHOST HUNTERS            

Have you ever seen that show Ghost Hunters? 

It's on the Syfy network. Basically two main guys, Jay and Grant,  and their team go to "haunted" places looking for proof of Ghosts... The try to catch things on film and audio on tapes to bring back to the people who called for their "help."

Sometimes there is creepy stuff... but usually it is just them walking around in the dark after "weird noises".... They do a flashlight trick where they have the "ghost" turn the flashlight on and off to answer questions... 

If McLovin and I happen to catch the show we like to spend the time discussing what we would do if we were Ghost Hunters... And we have determined that we would probably get kicked off the show.

Because honestly the show is just a lame under budget version of Ghostbusters... Probably one of the greatest movies ever made. But don't fall alseep to the DVD... the theme song plays on repeat and that shit gets annoying!

So Below are the top Ten thing we would steal from Ghostbusters to get kicked off the Ghost Hunters Show:

1. humming the Ghostbusters theme song into the vents so the sound carries throughout the building being investigated...  There is debate on whether we would end the tune with Ghostbusters or Ghost Hunters... Since both are the same number of syllables and conveniently start with Ghost. 

2. When they do their little flashlight trick saying "Generally you don't see that kind of behavior in a major appliance."

3. Saying: OK, who brought the dog? Before slamming into a wall and wailing in terror.
(Apparently they have now added a dog to the team... cause you know, dog's are better at picking up on paranormal shit. It would also be imperative to slam into a wall in terror EVERY time we saw the dog.)

5. After spotting a suspicious "shadow":  "What we have here is what we call a non-repeating phantasm, or a class-5 free roaming vapor" (cause when you are wondering around a dark building at night with flashlights and a camera crew the last thing you are going to see is weird shadows)

6. Claiming to have seen a cockroach big enough to "bite your head off."

7. Blowing our noses in petri dishes and handing them in as evidence of paranormal activity.

8. Running around tasering the rest of the "team" and claiming to be "studying the effect on negative reinforcement on ESP ability."  

9. Splashing each other with a glass of water and writhing around on the floor yelling that we've been slimed.

10. Throwing lit marshmallows at people's heads while screaming "The Destructor COOOOOOMES!"

Personally, I think the Ghost Hunters show has gotten a little stale and these kinds of antics would at least distract the viewers from the fact that you are basically watching middle-aged adults wander around buildings after the sound of footsteps for an hour.

So, Happy Halloweeny everyone!

And remember.... If someone asks you if you're a God, you Say YES!


  1. Mercury. Meer-Cure-ee.Did you see that episode? Your description is spot on and no, it doesn't touch Ghostbusters.

  2. Love the suggestions! Ghost Hunters has become a little stale and I think your ideas would spice it up!

    Love the blog, by the way.
