Spooky sailor's story that raised a raucous laugh

by Linda McDermott, Liverpool Echo

[An "allegedly true" story told at the Royal Naval Association's annual dinner concerned a drunk hitchhiker who, after getting into the backseat of a slowly passing car, discovered the car had no driver, just a ghostly hand reaching in through a window and turning the steering wheel. The frightened man jumped out of the vehicle and staggered to the safety of a nearby bar. Two men later entered the bar and one of them, seeing the hitchhiker, exclaimed, "There's the idiot who jumped into our broken down car while we were pushing it!"
