Weird World ghosts

A whole decade later and this all-time great Guardian story has been going viral – again!

It’s not the first time we’ve featured this story – as if you needed reminding – and it won’t be the last.

But it’s a decade – almost – since this tale first appeared in the Guardian and it’s been going viral all over again. So what the hell …

And just in case you want a longer read …

‘A man has been fined for pretending to be a ghost and other rowdy behaviour in a cemetery.

‘Anthony Stallard pleaded guilty at Portsmouth magistrates court to using threatening or abusive words or behaviour likely to cause distress.

‘The court heard that the 24-year-old had been out drinking with friends when they went to Kingston cemetery in Portsmouth, where they started to play football.

A Hampshire police spokesman said that witnesses complained to police about Stallard’s rowdy behaviour and his pretending to be a ghost.

“The witnesses reported the group engaging in rowdy behaviour and one of them throwing their arms in the air and saying ‘woooooo’,” he said.’

Wooooo to you too.
