    "If you've recently been bitten by a ghost, is a Rabies shot necessary? If it were the ghost of an...

    Indian could Small-Pox come into play?"

      Somehow this doesn't surprise me as much as it should!  I have become inured to these types of questions after trying to deal with the believers on the religious forums.

      I hope this was posted for comic relief. I've asked more intelligent questions after doing bong hits until 5 o'clock in the morning.

    Go ahead UW. Tell 'em yes, Rabies shot is most necessary and they better burn the bed clothes too and see a Dr as well as a Vet.

    The main question here to me is this---did the bite break the skin, then I would say they at least need a tetnis shot, and to be seen by a doctor regarding the rest.  I don't care if they got bit by a ghost or a flea, if it broke the skin they need medical attention.

    A southern minister stood before his Sunday congregation and announced the days sermon would be about ghosts.

    "Has anyone here ever seen a ghost" he asked?  Several hands were raised among his flock, gaining a few "amens" in the process.

    "Has anyone ever been touched by a ghost" he continued?  Only a few hands were evident after this question and even fewer "amens"!

    Feeling emboldened with the interest in the topic, the preacher decided to go for the gusto!  "Has anyone ever made love to a ghost" he asked, which garnered a few gasps.  Especially so, as there was only a single hand evident above the crowd of worshipers.

    The preacher, astonished at the surprising confession of one of his group, asked the man with the upheld hand "are you telling us you have made love to a ghost, George"?

    "A ghost" George asked?  "Oh no,never mind, I thought you said goat!"

    I'm pretty sure this was asked by the same hubber who posed this little beaut:

    Why don't Indians eat carbon paper?

    lol

    I give up. Why don't Indians eat carbon paper?

    Surely there's got to be a punchline to this!

      I was hoping YOU could give me one!  It TOTALLY sounds like a set up for a joke, doesn't it?  I've actually found myself pondering this for about an hour... 

      I mean, heck, I know why Americans don't eat it and all.

    All I can say is, whoever is posing these questions has a real Indian fixation.

    Another one...

    "During the rapture is it possible to "lift" just the good parts up and leave the bad...

    behind.........say "the right hand" for instance?"


    Just sayin'.......  yikes   Pretty sure I'm creating a hub inspired by this one...

  14. Mighty Mom profile image90
    Mighty Momposted 6 years ago

    Where are you getting these from, Wordscribe?
    And when will your hub be finished?

    I LOVE the one about during the Rapture!
    Leave the bad behind. Hmm. Is this saying the right hand is the good hand and should be lifted up? Or is the right hand bad and should stay?
    Either way, in that rapturous moment, you can be sure that.....


















    ... the right hand will not know what the left hand is doing lol
    Sorry. I just couldn't resist And with that, I am off to bed to contemplate these questions ... and my navel.

    Rochelle -- love your owl avatar!

    You all are off the chain on this one...

    O.K. UW 'fess up' what was your reply for the question?  LOL!

    I got bit by an Indian once. Not a ghost though, just my husband.
    I'm not sure whether this qualifies me to answer... lol

    Neither one of us got small pox. Or rabies.

    And I never once served up a tasty carbon paper dinner... but that wasn't so much a cultural choice. Carbonless is much less expensive.

      smile  A ghost of husband's past, I guess.  I most certainly think this makes you the best candidate to answer the question!

    Two more I'm pondering today:

    "I've noticed that my amulet turns dark yellow when I tune into CNN"s The Situation Room? Does...

    anyone have anything relevant to say about this?"


                               AND

    "what does it mean when somebody cuts their hair up and spreads it on somebody elses personal items?

    I believe a staff member who's husband is from a small village in Africa has cut up her hair and spread it around a plant in my office."

      1. If amulets are anything like mood rings they change color in response to the wearer's reaction to their surroundings, experiences and mental state. So the color change probably tell more about the person than the outside influences.
      2. Human hair will sometimes repel rodents and other vermin, so maybe it was a protective action. Don't assume that every action has a negative motive.
