It seems impossible. It seems beyond belief, but the news channels are reporting that Casper (aka The Friendly Ghost) has apparently been killed by an amateur Ghost Buster team operating out of Canarsie, Brooklyn. This unlicensed group called YOU FIND ‘M WE’LL SUCK ‘EM OUT OF HERE. LLC, apparently mistook Casper for a real demon ghost (we all know he’s not) and using a Neutrona Wand and Proton Pack (apparently ordered from eBay for $79.99 + tax) sucked Casper’s ectoplasm into their unit.
The groups spokesperson, Burt “The Buster” Banks had only this to say to waiting news reporters:
“Hey, he’s a spook…what do I know about friendly spooks?”
The initial report to police came in from some woman who only identified herself as “Wendy” and said that Casper was lonely and tired of scaring people.
“I don’t like this,” Casper was reported to say many times. “I want to make friends, but everyone is scared of me.”
According to background researchers, Casper was born Casper McFadden to an inventor father named J.T.McFadden, somewhere near New York City. Professor McFadden passed away years ago, but not before witnessing the death of his son Casper. The twelve-year-old child had been playing outdoors in cold weather and came in after midnight. He soon developed a fever and three days later died of pneumonia .
Meanwhile, Wendy has not stopped weeping. “He was so lonely. And now we don’t even know where he is.”
A spokesperson from the “YOU FIND ‘EM, WE’LL SUCK ‘EM OUT OF HERE. LLC. said that there may be ways to extract his ectoplasm from the unit, but the outlook looks dim since the physical facility is located on Staten Island.
As this reporter over-heard: “What goes to Staten Island, stays on Staten Island.”
And as this reporter cries, I can’t think about how lonely Wendy will be.
Casper was her only true friend.
