I hate it when this happens:

The late Richard Relleck, a skeptic famed for debunking ghost sightings, apologized today for personally haunting the Relleck country estate.

“I wish I could just disappear,” said the specter of the humiliated investigator, “but the best I can do is become sort of lamely translucent.”

Mr. Relleck had tried for weeks to debunk himself, dismissing his ghostly form as variations in air pressure, reflections of car headlights, or smudges of dirt on the lenses of cameras.

“I guess I’m authentic,” Relleck said. The skeptic’s estate has refused to offer a refund for his book Ghosts Are Unreal!

However, Mr. Relleck will show up at seances and special book ‘sightings’ to discredit his own work, and otherwise live a life of relative paranormalcy.

Sometimes it’s better to just keep your mouth shut…

    Yes, those days when I’m lamely transparent really suck. It’s very hard, for example, to effectively lead a meeting or a conference call when one’s transparency is fluid.

    oh god, i love the WWN.

    during the godawful time right after 9/11, they were the only paper from tabloid to Serious that gave me a much needed smile with a headline:

    “MINI MERMAID FOUND IN TUNA SANDWICH”

    “I asked for extra mayo, and got THIS instead” area local says

    Not long ago some government debunkers explained the Marfa lights as reflections from nearby highway’s headlights. Until a local Marfan pointed out that the printed accounts of the lights dated to ‘way before there were cars with headlights. Relleck would be doubly lamed.

    I’m trying to decide whether I could get more or less work done if I were lamely translucent.

    oh god, i love the WWN.

    You and me both. I actually had a subscription for a year or two back in the early 90s.

    Maybe they were time-traveling cars.
