Don’t Let Him Defecate!

This will be Orac’s new favorite show, perhaps the best reality show ever made.

Meet Shirley Ghostman. The UK’s premier psychic who is mounting a search for the UK’s next psychic superstar.

Watch his students cry as he channels Lady Di!

Watch as he brings forth a evil serial killer in the presence of his students:

Shirley even takes on the skeptics!

This guy is a genius, I just about plotzed, and the narration by Patrick Stewart is awesome. I also love it in terms of what denialism blog has always talked about. The problem with the people who believe this stuff is that they simply have no gauge of reality, no ability to judge what evidence makes sense or not. Shirley beats them over the head with this fact for hours at a time and they just can’t figure it out. True, it’s sad, but damn is it funny.


  1. ROFLMAO! Brilliant!

  2. I wish I could say that the contestants must be in on the joke, but I suspect they’re entirely sincere, entirely gullible, and entirely idiotic.

  3. I almost thought that the last video was a satire. Seriously, no one can be that stupid. I mean really, you multiply any number by anything, and you can get any number.

  4. The last video was a satire. Its a BBC comedy show.

  5. I so totally believe that Shirley is not a gaylord, but just a bit camp, as Lady Di said.

    I thought all of them were satire. Are you sure only the last one is satire?

  7. Do they reveal the game to any of the poor bewildered “contestants” on the show.

    I’d love to see their reactions to it. Would any still think they have psychic powers afterwards.

    Oh, and Shirley is such gaylord. Lady Di is full of it.

  8. Satire isn’t quite the right word for it. He’s doing what Sascha Baron Cohen did with Borat. These people have no idea he’s screwing with them, their ability to judge reality is so altered that they don’t get the joke. That’s the joke.

    Remember “Swimming, is that what you’re thinking about?” and eventually they say yes? They’re so suggestible they can’t help themselves.

  9. Oh, dear, not Patrick Stewart! Oh, Patrick.

  10. When I first heard Patrick Stewart’s voice, my opinions of him kind of went down a bit… But then a figured out what was going on, and I now think this is the most wonderful thing ever. Even better than antibiotics, the internet and dollar menus.

    The first one I watched was the defecating serial killer and I immediately knew it was satire and nicely done too. But if it’s true the contestants are not realizing the joke, oh that makes it 10x funnier. Their reactions, priceless!

    Just found this blog from the skeptic in the last video. Apparently no one let him in on the joke until a fellow skeptic told him.
