The Ghost Man


If you're small in stature (about 4 feet tall) and severely malnourished (weighing about 52 lbs.), you might be able to get a job as the Ghost Man.
Gopal Haldar—too weak to work in the field—makes his living by painting his dainty form like a skeleton and performing as a ghost for about a dollar a show, which he spends on his hemp habit.
"Sometimes I enjoy it," he says of his job. "When I indulge myself in smoking hemp and playing chess, I wonder if I am a real ghost or a human being," he said philosophically.
Far out, man.

OMG. This is great. I feel wrong for laughing at it though. But still. LOL.

I suppose it would be rude to point out that he actually looks like a photo negative of a ghost . . .

This is somewhat like those photos of babies in Africa. I can never look at those for very long without crying.

Or photos of that Olsen twin in strapless dresses.

Yes, you'd think all that hemp would make him eat a cheeseburger or two.
