Not knowing what to do and embarrassed by the thought that his relatives will find out that he has splattered the bed sheet with unmentionables, he quickly collected the bed sheet and threw it out of the window.
The soiled sheet landed on a drunk who was passing by underneath the window. the drunk started swearing and screaming hysterically, punching in the air which left the bed sheet in a messy pile.
A passer-by, intrigued by the incident, stopped to ask what was going on.
The drunk replied, "You won't believe it but I just beat the cr*p out of a ghost!"
