A quick ghost story for you-

I bought an old trunk at an antique store years ago. I put it down in the basement, intending to clean it up and restore it. One night I went down there to start work on it. I turned on the light, and noticed this weird sort of black haze hanging over the trunk. At first, I though the furnace was acting up, but as I gazed at it, I noticed that the haze seemed to collect itself into the figure of a person. All the hair stood up on the back of my neck, but I didn't really feel threatened.

"Are you the owner of this trunk?" I asked, feeling foolish. The figure sort of nodded at me.

"Nobody is going to believe this, can I take a picture of you?" I said. The figure nodded again. I backed up toward my workbench and grabbed the digital camera, keeping the figure in sight all the while. I turned it on, framed the picture, and took a photo. But for some reason the flash wouldn't go off-I think the batteries were low. I kept trying, but eventually the figure just sort of faded away, and now I don't have any proof.

The moral of this story is...

...The spirit was willing, but the flash was weak.

That one was so scary that it must have awakened a bunch of ghosts! I can here the booing from here.

Well, if you want something truly funny about Halloween, you can always watch Lewis Black's bit about candy corn.

And if you want something truly creepy, read a few of the horror stories. Complete with colored bullets denoting their truthfullness and 1998ish MIDI music goodness.
