Canned Ghost

Recognize this?

You likely don’t but it’s a Ghost-In-A-Can. If you were to hold it you’d notice that it’s light, like it’s empty. Well, in a twist on the old Yell-In-A-Can or Breeze-In-A-Can, Ghost-In-A-Can is an empty can. Or is it?

The label warns “do not open without proper Ghostbuster supervision” and you can bet the minute I contact Dan Aykroyd, I’m pulling out the can-opener. Until then it’s hands off.

What makes this collectible unique, besides the fact that it’s an empty can, is that it was available only in Canada and appears on most collectible list at US$25. Beyond it’s Canadian heritage, I don’t know much about this item, but I’ll keep looking. What makes this one of my prized collectibles is that I found it in a second-hand store for CND¢50.

If you ever find this little item, buy it. It looks great on a bookcase.
