A professor at Auburn University in Alabama is giving a lecture on the supernatural to a large audience of students.
To get a feel for his audience, he asks: “How many people here believe in ghosts?”
About 90 students raise their hands.
“Well that’s a good start. Out of those of you who believe in ghosts, do any of you think you’ve ever seen a ghost?”
About 40 students raise their hands.
“That’s really good. I’m really glad you take this seriously.
Has anyone here ever talked to a ghost?”
15 students raise their hands.
“That’s a great response. Has anyone here ever touched a ghost?”
3 students raise their hands.
“That’s fantastic. But let me ask you one question of you ever made love to a ghost?”
One student way in the back raises his hand.
The professor is astonished. He takes off his glasses, takes a step back, and says, “Son, all the years I’ve been giving this lecture, no one has ever claimed to have slept with a ghost.
You’ve got to come up here and tell us about your experience.”
The redneck student from (Kentucky) replies with a nod and a grin, and begins to make his way up to the podium.
As he ambles slowly toward the podium the professor says, “Well, tell us what it’s like to have sex with a ghost.”
The student replies, “Ghost?!? Shiiiiiit….. From way back there I thought you said “goats.”
