Other bats are just fly-by-night operators.
I thought we were going to have a seance when they said it was time for "table rap". Then they brought out rolls of brown paper and string.

A very mean spirited group of psychics approved elections amongst their ranks in hopes of finding a happy medium
I agree with Charles...Gary's limerick was for the birds

When the ghost went to his high school reunion, he had forgotten many of their names, though they were all familiar spirits.
I have another friend who claims to make contact with the "other side" [and I do not refer to Party politics]. Ouija believe it?
He also tells me that spooks are not allowed to practice without training. Their ability is checked by one of Heaven's favourites. The In Spectre.
I’m certainly not out to sidetrack or derail this thread but we have a similar/parallel thread building this weekend on the PUNY FaceBook page. I’m double posting to both. I’ve also dug into my archives and have posted a few of my own from previous years. Click the link above to read what others are adding today.
[I also dug out this old limerick from a few years ago.]
Ravens are not, I suppose
A bird that much differs from crows

I have a friend who can't practice his violin at home, so he goes to graveyards to do so. He says that works best if he plays soul music. When I hear him he gives spirited performances.
Stephen King, the best-selling horror-story novelist obsessivejy visits cemeteries to find new plots.

A pretty female ghost was trying to seduce a handsome ghoul all night long but the ghoul kept rejecting her. When his buddies asked why he didn't go for it, he replied, "Why ruin my night when I cadaver in the morning"
The female ghost went haunting for a boyfriend but refused to slip between the sheets with any of them because she feared they might not re-specter in the mourning.
The zombie politician started his speech with, "My Fellow Zombies, Lend Me Your Ears"

When the ghost met the ghoul of his dreams he tried to woo-woo her by getting her drunk on boos. She, however, was unimpressed and told him that she was already spooken for. Howl he ever get over her?

Over a third of "Hilarious Holiday Humor" which I wrote with Richard Lederer are Halloween jokes, as is his entire new book, "Monster’s Unchained" I’ve been posting Halloween riddles all month. However a Halloween riddle that is one of my favorites from our book, and one I’ve never seen elsewhere is this one:
Q.:How do corpses in graveyards send messages to each other?
A.: They send CRYPTO-GRAMS.
Q: What do ghosts wear on rainy days?

Last time a met a vampire, he made a bad impression on me.
