One of the more interesting people that I follow on Twitter is a man named Tyler (The Ghost) Casper. (@tyler_casper) Check him out and give the man some love and a follow. Now, what was I saying? Oh yeah, he asks a lot of questions. And the regular readers of this site know how I am about questions, right? So I went down his Twitter feed and copied several of the most recently asked questions. And now, for your reading pleasure, it’s time to provide a few answers. So are you ready? Let’s do this…

What is the best name for a dog?

It all depends on the dog. The personality picks the name and vice-versa.

When was the last funeral you attended?

The last actual funeral was the grandfather of my best friend/brother. I generally don’t do funerals, preferring to go at a later time and pay my respects in private at the gravesite. The last “sitting up” was a long time dear friend, Pat. An awesome man who is deeply missed by all who knew him.

What is the most comfortable situation you’ve ever been in?

Laying in my bed, at night, alone, with the fans blowing in the darkness. It’s the ultimate feeling of comfort and relaxation. And so far as with other people, I have flashbacks to a certain piece of shit who lived near me and those nights spent just laying together, wrapped in his arms, talking. He was (and is) a piece of crap and a very sad person, but he was great at one thing and I actually had hope for him at that point and time.

Has anyone ever tried ultrasonic therapy for pain or carpal tunnel?

I don’t know. Have they?

What is the most uncomfortable situation you’ve ever been in?

When I was getting robbed at gunpoint back in the days of Dairy Mart. Or maybe when a certain woman came to my workplace to cry about her husband having an affair and I had to listen and console her, knowing that she and her husband had been separated and I had been seeing him for almost six months at that point. Oh vey!

What is the worst name for a dog?

Spot or Rover or George.

What is the worst name for a cat?

It doesn’t matter what you call a cat. They won’t like it or come when you call anyways. I guess something totally stupid like “Cat” or “Stripes” or whatever.

What is the best name for a cat?

Whatever suits the cat and their personality.

What is the worst name for a horse?

Any name is fine so long as they have a name. There was a horse that one guy rode through a desert and then set free because the desert had turned into the sea and he never even gave that horse a name. That stupid idiot.

What is the best name for a horse?

How about Horse?

What’s the longest you’ve ever had to wait at a doctor’s office?

I think it topped off at a little over an hour, The actual time with the doctor took about five minutes at the most, but the wait was ridiculous.

Have you ever tough talked a spider?

Damn skippy I did, until he moved towards me. And then I smashed him with a book.

Have you ever tough talked a mosquito?

Probably, but usually, I just swing at them and try to smash their asses.

Do you believe in ghosts?

Yes. They are real.

Do you believe in the things that go “bump in the night”?

Yes. I call it my “damn cat”. 

Do you believe in life after death?

Maybe not actual physical, another name and body reincarnation, type of deal, but I would hate to think that this life, in this world we live in, is all there is. I would like to think (and pray) that there is more to come.

Do you believe in physics?

Absolutely. We used to be able to call them, pay astronomical amounts of money, and listen to bullshit banter from Sister Cleo, Gary Spivey, and Sylvester Stallone’s mother. It had to be real, right? But in all seriousness, I do think that some people can have premonitions of things to come and while they’re not playing the role of fortune tellers on TV and radio, they do exist and are real.

Who do you believe should play the role of Jeffrey Epstein in a major motion picture?

How about Rob Lowe? He hadn’t done a major movie in a while and he’s a great actor. It’ll probably end up being Ben Affleck though.  

Have you ever had ants in your pants?

Literally, yes. Those little bastards can bite. Ouch!

What is your favorite holiday season?

The time that we call Halloween. It’s definitely my favorite holiday.

Do you prefer a gal to have long or short hair?

Hell, I don’t care how long their hair is. So long as they’re happy, I’m happy. Hell, I like the bald chicks too. Bald is hot. Just look at Moondragon in Marvel Comics (Heather Douglas). For a comic book character, who’s also a telepathic bitch, she’s a total hottie.

What is your favorite thing to drink?

Diet Mt. Dew
