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