BANAL INTERVIEWS WITH CELEBRITY GHOSTS – THE WRIGHT BROTHERS

September 28, 2014
Tags:

Loon: For the 3 question interview we have with us today none other than Orville and Wilbur Wright, inventors of flight. Tell me, Wilbur and Orville, is the little rumor I heard about a certain young lady named Kitty Hawk had quite a lot of input, so to speak, in getting your machine off the ground, so to speak?

Orville’s ghost: Kitty Hawk is the name of the site in North Carolina where we first achieved success with our flying machine. It is not the name of a young lady.

Loon: Oh, sure, if you say so. (winks) Second Question. If you had one piece of chocolate, would you share even if it was really small?

Wilbur’s ghost: One of us would. One of us wouldn’t. (glares at Orville)

Loon: And finally, did you sing harmony as you worked?

Both ghosts (emphatically): No!

Loon: That wraps up another 3 question interview. Join me next week when who knows who the Lords of the 4th Dimension will provide for the questions 3. (Bows. Exits. The Wright brothers had flown off earlier.)

The show is over. You begin to peel off your clown suit. Others pass by, congratulating you on your performance. You feel a surge of well being. Here you are where you want to be doing what you want to do. You linger before the mirror. Time stretches out in pleasant reverie. Silence glides in and settles. You are alone in the tent. Now suitably garbed in street clothes, you step outside. You notice the door to the box office is ajar. You walk over, shove it open. There she is. You die.

BANAL INTERVIEWS WITH CELEBRITY GHOSTS – SIR WILLIAM S GILBERT

September 21, 2014
Tags: ,

Loon: Today the Lords of the 4th Dimension have seen fit to deliver to us for the 3 question interview the ghost of Sir William Gilbert. I am led to believe Sir William was active in Victorian England. Sir William, did you have anything to do with investigating the Jack the Ripper murders?

Ghost of W. S. Gilbert: If I were a lowly pigeon, I’d answer not a smidgen. But as I’m a high born hawk, I ignore such piffling talk.

Loon: Oh. I see. Was there really punting on the Thames? I didn’t think football was invented yet.

Ghost of W. S. Gilbert: Surely you must jest. Are you putting me to a test?

Loon: I … No. Did you like fish and chips?

Ghost of W. S. Gilbert: Though I’m far from being skinny, I do believe you’re a ninny. (dances off through the ceiling)

Loon: So there you have Sir William Gilbert, a famous person from Victorian England. (leaves room awkwardly)
