best ghosts!

Jacob Marley - this guy used to work for Ebenezer Scrooge but died one Christmas and came back as a ghost (also on Christmas!) to warn Scrooge about the perils of living a life of greed. it's a pretty famous story. also, i've heard the term "smoking a Marley" being bandied about in youth culture circles, so it probably has something to do with this guy.

Candyman - if you live in urban Chicago and say 'Candyman' five times while looking in a mirror, the Candyman will appear and kill you with his hook. i'm not sure why they call him Candyman; he just looks like a black dude wearing a fur trimmed pimp coat who carries a giant hook. i see no link to candy.

Stay Puft Marshmallow Man - a tall-as-a-building logo man made of gigantic marshmallows; actually the final form taken by evil demigod Gozer to destroy the Ghostbusters and most of downtown 1980's New York. prompted Peter Venkman to exclaim: "Nobody steps on a church in my town!"

Blinky - Blinky was the red ghost from Pac-Man. he lived in a maze.

Jesus - Jesus was the main ghost in the hugely popular fiction opus 'The Bible'. he could turn water to wine, come back to life whenever he wanted, and was generally a pretty nice guy. apparently he'll be returning to Earth sometime in the near future. sequel anyone?

Bruce Willis - totally badass. totally a ghost. how can you make die hard that which cannot die?

Captain Awesome - this is the ghost that i see in the early hours of the morning, before the dawn when i'm barely alive. more of an inspirational hallucination than an actual ghost. he said if i didn't include him in this list he'd stop making all the bad people go away and make me "deal with shit on my own". kind of an asshole.

i'm sorry, you must have misread the title. it says "BEST ghosts"; not "freaky-ass lame Bill Cosby ghosts that are actually scary and make me sleep with the light on".
