Reader Ben sends us some exciting news. Not only is legendary golfer Bobby Jones currently existing in our world as a benevolent spirit, he is also living comfortably in a glass jar. A glass jar that you can buy on eBay! The starting bid is listed at $500, or the jar can be bought outright for $1,000, and let's be honest, you'd have to be a real dummy to not just drop a grand on this prized piece of memorabilia right now.
According to the eBay posting, that jar you see below contains the ghost of Bobby Jones, and the owner of the jar has quite a tale to tell about how Bobby Jones's ghost got in there:
Earlier this year, I began to hear strange voices come from my garage and specifically my golf clubs. The voice would repeat "Syringomyelia, Syringomyelia." At first I had no idea what the ghost was saying, so I googled the word. Syringomyelia is the disease that paralyzed killed hall of fame golfer Bobby Jones. I asked the apparition are you Bobby Jones? The ghost then became visible dressed in 1950's golfing gear. The ghost said yes I am Bobby Jones. I didn't know what to do, so in panic I took the jar next to me and forced the ghost of Bobby Jones into the container. Thankfully this ghostly version of Bobby Jones was the paralyzed version of him and not the pristine athlete from the 1920's.
As much as I like having Mr.Jones in my house, my wife is petrified of ghosts and is now forcing me to sell him. I have decided to sell Mr. Jones on ebay and donate half of the proceeds to the cure Syringomyelia fund.
Unfortunately Mr. Jones ghost can only be seen by true believers. If you are not a true believer bid with caution, for you may be unable to see him. I will not be giving refunds, so bid with caution as this is something impossible to authenticate and verify.
OK, so maybe owning the paralyzed version of Bobby Jones's ghost isn't ideal, but at least he is reasonably priced. The non-paralyzed ghost of Bobby Jones would easily go for $10,000 on the open market.
