Saw Weiner with a goat this morning and thought to myself “here go more weiner bumps, but this time with a goat instead of Rahm”.

Islamic Student Proves Existence Of Afterlife And Possibility Of Sex
With Ghosts.

A professor at Georgetown University was giving a lecture on
Paranormal Studies last Wednesday.

To get a feel for his audience, he asks, ‘How many people here believe
in ghosts?’

About 90 students raise their hands.

Well, that’s a good start. Out of those who believe in ghosts, do any
of you think you have seen a ghost?’

About 40 students raise their hands.

That’s really good. I’m really glad you take this seriously. Has
anyone here ever talked to a ghost?’

About 15 students raise their hand.

Has anyone here ever touched a ghost?’

Three students raise their hands.

That’s fantastic. Now let me ask you one question further...Have any
of you ever made love to a ghost?’

Way in the back, masters degree student Ahmed Mohammad El-Mukfarthee
raises his hand.

The professor takes off his glasses and says ‘Son, all the years I’ve
been giving this lecture, No one has ever claimed to have made love to
a ghost.

You’ve got to come up here and tell us about your experience.’

The Middle Eastern student replied with a nod and a grin, and began to
make his way up to the podium.

When he reached the front of the room, the professor asks, ‘So, Ahmed,
tell us what it’s like to have sex with a ghost?’

Ahmed replied, “Oh Sheet, Soooo sorry, Efendi. Sex with ghosts I don’t
know about. From way back there where I was sitting, I thought you
asked about “sex with goats.”
