“Don’t drink with ghosts. They can’t handle their boos”

"Boos” sounds like “booze,” prompting the pun:

“Don’t drink with ghosts. They can’t handle their boos.”

The joke has been cited on Twitter since December 9, 2013. Another ghost joke is: “A ghost walks into a bar. The bartender says, ‘We don’t serve spirits!’”
