There are lots of great questions you can ask a ghost. Like, “How’s Grandma?” or “Who killed JonBenét Ramsey?” or “Do ghosts really fuck?” Ghosts can pass through walls, communicate with other ghosts, and spy on the living, hence why an encounter with one should be pretty illuminating.

Bradley Cooper is single now, which is news I will only truly find interesting if he and the suspiciously also recently-single Lady Gaga run off together to become a pair of roving sexy cabaret singers, or, better, to live out the rest of their days on a very private island stocked only with sexy pianos.
