Not OUR Crazy

Here's a little Halloween story for you. A lady in Benton, Illinois, recorded a ghost bartender on her surveillance camera. Or so she says.

Kelly Davis, assistant manager of the Crazy Horse Bar, says the recording shows a dark figure standing behind the bar, making bartending movements. The dark figure then sits of a bar stool.

What she doesn't mention is that the dark figure flies to the ceiling for a while, darts all around, and then sits on the bar stool. Well, she DOES mention it when being interviewed on the video. She even uses the word FLIES.

Which is what this appears to be. A big ol' honkin' FLY on the lens of the camera. What self-respecting ghost bartender would fly up around the ceiling while on work detail? Check it out for yourself. Don't take MY word for it!

And whoever wrote the copy for KFVS in Cape Girardeau isn't any better than the hacks at KSDK in St. Louis. At least the ghost-whispering chick isn't from Missouri. Illinois can keep their crazy.

LMAO. OMG. I wonder if anyone got reprimanded or fired for that bullcrap.

It was probably for publicity. I think she said the boss was her mother-in-law. And she did kind of chuckle once when she was telling the reporter, "And then he flies up by the ceiling for a while." Heh, heh. FLIES. Freudian or intentional?

Even though it's a pathetic attempt to get publicity around Halloween, I'm scoring this as one point for the State of Misery in the redneck contest.
Mostly because there will be far too many people who believe it.

She's NOT our crazy. She's NOT. We will not be bullied into accepting her. She belongs to Illinois. That whole state is nuts. Exhibits A and B: Oprah and Obama.
