Medium burned by poorly-Photoshopped ghost of James Randi

BY JOSH BUNTING


In the mid-19th century, three sisters from a sleepy upstate NY community managed to convince the world that they could communicate with the dead. Late in their lives, two of the Fox sisters demonstrated how they pulled off this fraud (one of them simply cracked the knuckle in her big toe).

He dressed for this occasion differently than he had for his many television appearances; gone were the fancy suits and fat ties, and with them, wherever they were, went the obnoxious swagger, the smug look on his face. He wore sweatpants and a hoodie two sizes too big for him, if that were possible, and on his face an expression of sincere fright with his rat-eyes set in a suspicious squint.
