Summary: Beaver provides a total makeover for Steve's unwanted ghost.
"Fin" style: Obscured by a pink pillow case with the word "party!" on it.
Number of panels: 8
Steve SHIVER!s. His breath is visible in the air. He is both cold and annoyed.
Steve: "It's freezing in here Beaver! Can't we turn up the thermostat?"
Beaver is in pontification mode. He has a finger in the air and his eyes closed.
Beaver: "Now Steve, the heating is fine as it is."
Beaver: "I think the problem is probably that ghost that follows you around everywhere"
He points to a sad glowing green stick figure hanging in mid air behind Steve.
Steve turns to look.
Steve turns his annoyance against the ghost and tries to shoo it away with his arms.
Steve: "Shoo! Skat! Stupid ghost!"
The ghost ignores Steve.
Steve: "How am I going to make it go away?"
Beaver : "Well you could try getting rid of that cursed death amulet..."
Indeed there is a chain around Steve's neck upon which hangs a massive bronze colored amulet. Neither were previously visible. The amulet bears the image of a sad smiley.
Steve: "No Way! Chicks totally dig cursed death amulets!"
He clutches the amulet. The amulet is emanating DOOOM, WOOOOAA and AAAAIEE sounds in his hands.
Beaver: "Hmm, ok, I think I have another idea.."
Steve: "I just need this old pillow case and a few marker pens..."
He holds said items in his hands.
Beaver, tongue poking out of his mouth in concentration, moves to pull the pillow case over the ghost off-panel.
Beaver proceeds to DRAW on the pillowcased ghost off-panel while Steve observes.
Beaver: "There, your ghost problems are over!"
Beaver presents a pillowcase clad ghost which now has a happy face and the a speech bubble saying "let's party!" drawn on it.
Steve is thrilled.
Steve: "Yay! Now it's a party everywhere I go!"
The Ghost seems to shine in the dark. It may be useful when one wants to go to the WC at night and doesn't have any candle.
