Move over swine flu, the latest epidemic to hit Denver is an outbreak of ghosts. Granted, most are made of rags, have tissue for brains and dangle from the low-hanging branches of maple trees, but the photo above proves that more mischievous spirits do exist. Yes, ghosts must be real, because why else would someone take a perfectly serviceable late-model automobile and doll it up with fake ghostbusters paraphernalia?
And you can tell that this a dead serious ghostbuster. Look at that perfect parking job, with the front wheels angled toward the curb to prevent accidental rolling, as per the driver's training manual. Be prepared for an infectiously frightening Halloween this year.
