The Scent of Death

NEW DELHI (Reuters) -- Fear of a ghost who knocks on doors and wafts the scent of aftershave lotion along corridors has forced a prestigious college for statisticians in the Indian capital to close.

This would be okay if the aftershave wasn't Hi-Karate. (stan@squidworks.com) For ghosts who don't have to try too hard?

To avoid financial collapse, the college contacted Dreamworks studio in Hollywood, California, and proposed that its campus be used to to film the studio's next installment in the Casper the Friendly Ghost franchise titled, "Casper - The Retirement Years", sponsored by Old Spice.

Even though it has been proved statistically that ghosts don't shave, students refused to return to class. (sheafitz1@netscape.com)

I fear the ones who "whaft" in the elevator. (mwatts@nhbakersfield.com) Wow, I've never heard anyone blame a ghost before.

"I smell dead people." (ZulusBall@aol.com)

That ghost sounds like SUCH a Brut! (DaphnetheRed@yahoo.com)

After closing it's doors for the final time, one statistician ironically turned to another and said: "What are the odds?" (kamasushi@aol.com)

Okay - just a calculated guess here on why they closed - was the school's "ghost incident" anywhere near final exams time? (Laboutin@LaCroix.com)

Had these statisticians done their homework they would have dicovered, it was an astronomical mistake to close, because the odds of finding a ghost polite enough to knock, and smell nice doing it are about 756,894,721 to 1. (tackajoey@aol.com)

Might have been "A Ghost of The Christmas Present"...I know aftershave is what I always get for a Christmas present. (Airfarcewon@aol.com) Me too! and i'm not even hairy and smelly.

WINNER...

We are now outsourcing our ghosts. (richdiandkids@optonline.net)
