    Ghosts can pass through walls but not tinted glass? Useful information!

    I wonder if I should give one of them away free with each copy of MORTAL GHOST …

    Reminds me of an eBay auction for a “Ghost in a Jar”

    Rob Cockerham did a wonderful parody of this with “Toast in a Jar”

    To paraphrase the In Living Color sketch;

    “Seeeeen iiiit!”

    And that’s from ’89 – they sold empty cardboard novelty cans in ’84 for the first Ghostbusters movie.

    May as well fill the bottles with snake oil.

    Nice to know that someone’s soul/essence/remnants/echo is worth only $20.

    Hey, I still got one of those 1989 Burger King & Coca-Cola canned ghosts!

    It said “Do not open”, so I managed to resist temptation and haven’t opened it yet. The can is full of compressed air, it seems.

    Some people said it contained some sort of fluorescent gas that glowed in the dark when the can was opened. I think they were just pulling my leg to tempt me further.

    If you like that, I have a sack of invisible fairies I’ll sell you for fifty bucks.

    Although it does remind me of Tim Powers’ wonderful trilogy Last Call, Expiration Date, and Earthquake Weather with its ghosts and smokes and telophone calls from the afterlife. I’m looking forward to savoring A Soul in a Bottle soon.

    @Carl:

    LA cigar? Too tragical!

    Might as well piss in a bottle. But remember, don’t cross the streams.

    @6:
    I think you can find those in the grass around truck stops. Spooky stuff, at least for the guys who mow the grass out there.
