Do I make you horny, baby? Do I? Even though I don’t have a body?

File this under the “You Learn Something New Every Day” category. Apparently, ghosts can be horny little buggers, and a “ghostbuster” named Syed Abdullah Alattas, founder and chief investigator of Seekers Malaysia, has been investigating:

GHOSTS have sex. This is the claim of Syed Abdullah Alattas, founder and chief investigator of Seekers Malaysia.

“We are doing research to find out their habits, behaviour, how they have sex and such,” he said.

Syed Abdullah said some texts on religion also mentioned naughty and randy ghosts. Dressed in a red T-shirt, a black leather vest and leather gloves and looking more like a well-heeled Mat Rempit rather than a ghost-buster, he bubbled with enthusiasm when discussing apparitions.

Personally, I’m having a hard time visualizing this. After all, if ghosts are not corporeal, how in the world could they “do it”?

My favorite quote, though, is here:

On his ghostly experiences, he said: “Some of it is so weird that I cannot tell you about it. It might also be dangerous for me.” He did not elaborate.

A “weird phenomenon”, he said, was when one hears sounds never heard before or when one gets extremely cold for a second or two for no apparent reason or when one smells something never smelt before.

“You can feel it. Just because you cannot see it, doesn’t mean a ghost is not there.”

To which I would retort: Just because you can feel it doesn’t mean that a ghost is there. I guess he wasn’t kidding when he said that ghost hunting is “40% scientific and 60% spiritual,” except that it’s more like 1% scientific (if that) and 99% hokum.
