One of my first viral Internet successes was a website dedicated to haunted mobile homes. It started as a comedy routine, then became a sketch on my second album, then the hit morning radio song "Ghost in the Trailer" on my third album, and finally the highly-trafficked and much talked-about website, www.TrailerGhost.com.

Every Halloween, like the restless spirit of the undead, the site rises back up to haunt me. Reporters call, traffic spikes, and stories roll in of people who seriously think their mobile home is haunted. I can't make this stuff up.

The site is still good for a few laughs, so go check it out - if you dare!!!
