Hell Hath No Fury


In the wake of the debacle which was the annual live Halloween broadcast for Ghost Hunters 2008, from Fort Delaware, in which Grant pitifully faked being accosted by a ghost and told to go away, he has opined that the only people who would stoop to question his veracity are haters of the show and the whole paranormal field.

Au contraire, ma pauvre petite belette.  Only the deeply disappointed would be so outraged, to the point of dissecting the lameness in excruciating, mortifying detail.  To wit – a former Ghost Hunters fan, named formerghfan, has labored mightily to reveal the Truth, in 3D.  It would be quite devastating, if the notion of shame were part of the TAPS world view.  Happily for Hans and Franz, it isn’t.

And there are more former fans rending their garments and crafting sorrowful videos, like this one.  A lengthy and fascinating print vivisection of the episode may be read here.

Mme. B. is off sulking somewhere (although I think she believes the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum juju is directly responsible for this current disgrace) so I feel safe in contradicting her.  Grant Wilson is Marianne Foyster.     Next, he will enter into a bigamous marriage, move to North Dakota, and die in obscurity. Or, not.  I hear he has been throwing coat hangers.

    I had to Google Marianne Foyster…but the Fox sisters came to my mind.

    I watched the other video you linked to on YouTube, and this incident is certainly not holding up to scrutiny. The fact that Jason couldn’t have cared less about it is a giveaway, and Grant keeps that right hand down like Bob Dole hanging onto a pen.

    If “Paranormal Investigation” is the new Spiritualism (which I would argue for), what does that make Jason and Grant?

    Heh – Dole with a pen. Precisely!

    I had to ask Mme. B. your question. She said you already gave the answer – they’re the Fox sisters. So maybe Jason and Grant will confess in thirty or forty years. And then Grant will recant his confession. And they will die penniless in obscurity. Or, not.

    Gef– have you vanished on us?

    Hey, Steve.

    Mme. B and I have lost the fervor of the old days. Fort Delaware was something of a death blow. It’s hard to get enthusiastic about making fun of such total nincompoops. Still, I suppose it needs to be done. Mme. B. just says to hell with them. Perhaps I should drop by your place for some inspiration. I do vaguely remember anticipating the episodes where they use ouija meters, and she might enjoy ranting about that.
