Default I've got a ghost in my brewery/garage

So I'm outside shuffling vehicles around cause the Effin' code monkey cited me for having the boat on the street, and a ghost starts messing with my beer stuff. First my cooler/mash tun falls of the shelf, violently bouncing around the floor making all kinds of racket. Then, not 5 minutes later, a backpack falls off the top shelf and lands on one of the tap handles on my keezer, dumping pale ale all over the floor. Lucky I was staniding right there, but it got me thinking:

I hope this ghost is a boozer, so it can give me some afterworldly input on my beer! I guess I'll have to call the next one "Supernatural Ale" or something.

Hmmm... Would it be good or bad to have a boozer ghost hanging about?

I'd be afraid he'd slosh down all my beer. Could he actually drink it or would it puddle up underneath him?

If he can drink it, what happens when he gets loaded? Who knows wtf he'd knock over in the garage? Maybe he'd try to get in the house and put the moves on your SWMBO?

Can you imagine waking up in the middle of the night with a drunk-assed ghost trying to sweet talk your old lady into dump'n your ass and running off to the nether regions?

Yo E, c'mon...

I like the thread zombification as much, if not more, than the next guy, but isn't this a bit early?

Hell, we're talking about a thirsty ghost here. Had it been a zombie there would have been a whole lotta crap knocked asunder.
