Ghost

An enterprising journalist decides to get the scoop of the day by photographing the fearsome phantom that lives in the house at the edge of town. Armed only with his camera he bravely enters the house, and at once the ghost decends upon him, clanking chains and moaning.

"I mean no harm," pleads the journalist quickly. "I just want your photograph. Don't you want to be in the paper?"

Turns out the ghost is human enough to want to make headlines, and willingly poses for quite a few shots. The ecstatic journalist immediately rushes back to his darkroom to begin developing the photographs ... but they are so underexposed that nothing can be seen in them.

Seems the spirit was willing, but the flash was weak ...

I think I actually cried when I read the punch line. Bad. But thanks for the snicker anyway. Milky Way is better...

Every so often, there just seems to be in me this irresistable urge to add in an absolute argh! of a joke ... can't help groaning, and wincing, and the snicker drawn out regardless, almost involuntarily :D
