"Abe, what is the best thing
I could do for the country?"
"Go to the theater," replied Abe
Subj: Drunk Walks Past Hospital (S298b, S561c)

Mr. Harris was a very modest
man, and easily embarrassed.
So when he was in hospital after some abdominal surgery,
he would suffer greatly, trying not to break wind when a
nurse was in the room.
One day, the nurse had gone out,
and he felt a great need
to let 'er blow, so he did. Only it wasn't gas that he
passed. Just then, he heard the doctor's voice in the
corridor, as he was making his rounds. Not knowing what
else to do, Harris jumped out of bed, bundled up the sheets,
and threw them out the open window.
At that moment, a drunk was staggering
by on the sidewalk
below. The sheets fell on him, quickly tangling in his
arms and legs. Brown stuff is flying left and right as
he flailed about. The security guard sees the nonsense,
and comes trotting over. "Now, what do you think you're
doing there, fella?"
The drunk, with one final wrench,
throws the sheet to the
ground and hiccups. "Ah dunno," he pants. "But ah think
ah jush beat the crap out of a ghost."

Subj: Ghost Stories From The White House (S248b, DU)
From: TAdams on 10/31/2001
You say you don't believe in
Neither did Mary Evan, servant to Eleanor Roosevelt, until
she saw Lincoln's disembodied spirit sitting on the edge
of a bed pulling on his boots. Other White House servants
have seen Honest Abe resting quietly in his bed, or gazing
through the oval window above the main entrance to the
Once, the late Queen Wilhelmina
of the Netherlands, an
overnight guest in the White House, heard someone knock at
her door. "She got up, opened it, and saw the ghost of
President Lincoln standing there looking at her. She
fainted, and by the time she had come to he was gone,"
Mr. Holzer says.
The first persons to claim to
see Lincoln's ghost were
Calvin Coolidge's wife, Grace, and Army Chaplain E.C.
Bowles, describing Lincoln's "sad look." More recently,
President Gerald Ford's daughter, Susan, was in the
Lincoln Bedroom when she encountered Abe, while President
Ronald Reagan's daughter Maureen saw Lincoln's translucent
form next to the bedroom fireplace in 1987.
No wonder President Truman wrote
to his wife: "I sit here
in this old house, all the while listening to the ghosts
walk up and down the hallway. At 4 o'clock, I was
awakened by three distinct knocks on my bedroom door. No
one there. Damned place is haunted, sure as shootin'!"
In his book "Haunted Places:
The National Directory," a
485-page guide to ghosts and other unexplainable things
that go bump in the night, author Dennis William Hauck
says the ghost of President William Henry Harrison, who
caught cold the day he was inaugurated and died 30 days
later, rummages through the White House attic - still
searching for that scarf, no doubt.
While in the airy East Room,
White House staffers have
seen the ghost of first lady Abigail Adams hanging
laundry. Her apparition passes through closed doors
with her arms outstretched, and sometimes the faint
smells of damp clothes and soap are detected.
The ghost of President Andrew
Jackson frequents the
Rose Bedroom, where White House aides have heard "hearty
laughter" coming from Jackson's otherwise empty canopy
bed. First lady Mary Todd Lincoln swore she encountered
Jackson's ghost in the bedroom in 1865, while almost 100
years later an aide to President Lyndon B. Johnson
insisted he heard Jackson cussing and hollering in the room.
White House gardeners were petrified
when the spirit of
first lady Dolley Madison appeared in the Rose Garden while
Woodrow Wilson was president - just after Mrs. Wilson gave
orders to have the garden dug up. Dolley, you see, had
planted the garden a hundred years earlier.
We have no way of determining
what effect the anthrax
contamination has had on Capitol Hill's ghosts. We do
know this: The basement of the U.S. Capitol was a
favorite spot of Henry Wilson, vice president under
Ulysses S. Grant, who spent almost as much time in the
bathtubs there as he did in his office.
"He caught a chill that proved
his ultimate undoing, but
that did not stop his spirit from returning to his
favorite pastime," Mr. Hauck says. "His lathered ghost
and the sounds of wheezing and sneezing [pre-anthrax] have
been reported in the corridor outside the vice president's
The ghost of John Quincy Adams
can be found in his old
House floor seat, the same chair where on Feb. 23, 1848,
during an impassioned speech on this nation's "unjust" war
with Mexico, the former president-turned-congressman
suffered a stroke. Although Adams died two days later, he
often returns to finish his speech.
The spirits of two House speakers,
Joseph Cannon and Champ
Clark, also return late at night to continue their series
of emotional debates begun in 1910. And the ghost of Rep.
William Taulbee of Kentucky is never far away, haunting
the stairs leading to the House gallery.
"The stains on the white marble
steps are said to be
Taulbee's blood, dating back to a winter day in 1890 when
he was shot and killed by newspaper reporter Charles
Kincaid," Mr. Hauck recalls.
Subj: Woman See Psychic To Talk To Grandma (S190, S580b)

in hopes of contacting her
dearly departed grandmother. The psychic's eyelids begin

A professor at the University
of Kentucky is giving a lecture
on the supernatural. To get a feel for his audience, he asks:
"How many people here believe in ghosts?"
About 90 students raise their
hands. "Well, that's a good
start. Out of those of you who believe in ghosts, do any of
you think you've ever seen a ghost?"
About 40 students raise their
hands. "That's really good. I'm
really glad you take this seriously. Has anyone here ever
talked to a ghost?" l5 students raise their hands. That's a
great response. Has anyone here ever touched a ghost?" 3
students raise their hands. "That's fantastic. But let me ask
you one question further....Have any of you ever made love to a
One student way in the back raises
his hand. The professor is
astonished. He takes off his glasses, takes a step back, and
says, "Son, all the years I've been giving this lecture, no one
has ever claimed to have slept with a ghost. You've got to come
up here and tell us about your experience."
The redneck student replies wiht
a nod and a grin, and begins to
make his way up to the podium. As he ambles slowly toward the
podium, the professor says, "Well, tell us what it's like to have
sex with a ghost."
The student replies, "Ghost?!?
Shiiiiit.....From way back there,
I thought you said "goats."
Subj: Two Men In A Grave Yard (DU)
From: humorlist-digest V1 #238 on 97-11-02
Two men were walking home after
a party and decided to take
a shortcut through the cemetery just for laughs. Right in
the middle of the cemetery they were startled by a tap-tap-
tapping noise coming from the misty shadows. Trembling with
fear, they found an old man with a hammer and chisel, chipping
away at one of the headstones.
"Holy cow, Mister," one of them
said after catching his breath,
"You scared us half to death -- we thought you were a ghost!
What are you doing working here so late at night?"
"Those fools!" the old man grumbled. "They misspelled my name!"
