Local News Report On Ghosthunters Includes Ghost Who Allegeldy Wrote 'The Cake Is A Lie' On Chalkboard

November 6, 2013


Because apparently nothing else happens in Tulsa, Oklahoma, this is an almost five minute local news report about Jim Pace and his merry band of ghosthunters who "use technology to see the other side." What kind of technology? Real advanced stuff: video cameras, microphones -- shit you've probably never even heard about before. The sad news reporter quote associated with sign:

Other paranormal signs, Jim says: a message on a chalkboard, which was once part of that basement jewelry business. Someone or something, he says, wrote this message. "The cake is a lie." Which historically, Jim Says, means the promised reward never happened. Meaning somebody down here, isn't very happy.

If I were a news reporter and found myself assigned to this story I would quit and vow to never report again. I mean, just watch it. I knew local news was bad, but this? They ought to be ashamed. And this is coming from the guy who writes Geekologie and can literally work his penis into any article. See? Take it from a pro.

Hit the jump for the whole video (including spooky sound and video effects!), all of which is worth a watch, but skip to 2:35 if you just want to see the Portal reference.

Thanks to ChaosLex, who loves chaos so much he sets an alarm for 4AM then bangs pots and pans around for a little bit to convince the neighbors his place is haunted.

    Man, real-life ghost hunters are goddamn idiots.

    Now, now, not all ghost investigators are. Yes, there are lot that don't know what they are doing and should move on to other activities, but those that do are good at it. Zac and his guys from "Ghost Adventures" are excellent, when they aren't goofying around, though their humor is still enjoyable. The T.A.P.S. crew of "Ghost Hunters" do an adequate job, but they absolutely suck at EVP recordings and getting personal time with the spirits, hopefully assisting them if they desire it, as well as just being morons sometimes. I highly enjoy doing paranormal investigations when possible and my specialty is EVPs, of which I have hundreds of fantastic examples of from past hunts.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    To be honest I've never seen or heard any EVPs that weren't proven to be hoaxes or just the background microwave radiation from the big bang. Which is why I agree with soylent green on this.

  • Lisa Liel

    This was a triumph.

    Google Portal The Game, and enjoy the popular culture reference.

    It reads: "The Cake is a Lie"; your headline reads: "The Cake is a Life." You're slackin', GW.
