Humorous Ghost Stories

by Dale Kaczmarek

Spook Shooting (Psychic News: Printed in Body, Mind & Spirit, Jan/Feb 1988)

According to Psychic News, London, a French farmer has an unfortunate accident after watching a horror movie late at night. It seems that shortly after retiring, Michel Maumond, 40, reported seeing "a ghost in white at the foot of my bed." The frightened Maumond grabbed his gun and subsequently shot-off the toes of one of his feet.

Maumond has since determined that from now on he will stick to reading safe books at night.

Pepsi Blooper (Psychic News: Printed in Body, Mind & Spirit, Mar/Apr 1988)

A surprisingly number of misconceptions can arise when trying to translate a concept from one language to another. The Pepsi Cola company found this out when mounting an ad campaign in Taiwan. The slogan was supposed to read "Come Alive with the Pepsi Generation." Unfortunately, translated into Chinese it read, "Pepsi Will Bring Your Ancestors Back From the Dead."

Needless to say the advertisements were summarily canceled - even Pepsi couldn't quite live up to that claim.

Hess Haunting? (Body, Mind & Spirit, Mar/Apr 1988)

Earlier this year Rudolph Hess, one time deputy of Adolph Hitler, died after spending decades as the sole inmate of Spandau prison. Prior to his imprisonment in Spandau, Hess was held for two years in Britain at Mytchett Place. This property, located in Surrey, is reportedly up for sale for 650,000 British pounds. According to an article in Psychic News, London, there are "numerous reports of figures moving up and down the staircase, lights going on in locked rooms and photographs moving inexplicably."

During his imprisonment at Mytchett Place, Hess attempted to commit suicide by hurling himself over the balcony into the hall below. Could the spirit of Rudolph Hess be haunting Mytchett Place? Most likely not as Hess himself is reported to have seen these visions while incarcerated there. Apparently Hess was not "spooked" by these visitations. He considered them to be instances of psychological warfare perpetrated by British Intelligence.
