Nightmare on Main Street. Your award-winnin’ Morgan County Citizen moved its office across the street into that big yellow haunted house that was built in 1890!
Momma get the sleepin’ bags, candles, snacks, dowsing rods, video camera, martini fixings, EMF meter, Ouija board, sage, automatic writing supplies and holy water!
Honey that ghost is toast! We’re gonna catch it and get rich sellin’ our real live ghost video to the WORLD!
Ok we’ll camp in the front room! I’ll set up the motion-activated camera over there so that ghost can’t sneak up on us! Right! First things first! Momma shake us up some martinis! It takes a spirit to catch one! Ok let’s coax the ghost out! Hey ghost!
If you’re here give us a sign. Ding dang! Momma why in the Sam Hill did you throw that stapler at my head? What do you mean you didn’t do it? Momma! Put down that martini, put yourself into a trance and try to concentrate.
Whoa! Don’t look now but there’s a white scary menacin’ mad face floatin’ up there at the top of the stairs! Terminate the mission. Repeat. Terminate the mission!
Let’s split this sassy séance scene! Run like the wind! Whew! I ran so fast my shoes flat flew off!
