Top 10 Life Lessons From Ghostbusters

June 11, 2016

Iconic ’80s sci-fi classic is packed full of awesome lessons

This summer marks the 32-year anniversary of the first Ghostbusters movie and of course the brand new Ghostbusters, (release date July 15, 2016.)

In celebration of the new and in honor of the old, here are the top ten life lessons we can take away from the classic:

10) If there is an evil entity living in your fridge, then MOVE! Seriously. Get the fudge outta there Dana! Today it will be your fridge, tomorrow it will be your comfy chair. Demons don’t care. They will possess anything.

Go stay with your mom!

9) Twinkies are a perfectly appropriate demonstration tool when talking about the psychokinetic activity building up in New York City. Which leads me to….


Twinkies. Best way to describe paranormal activity.

8) Stay Puft marshmallows are extremely dangerous. Unless you have an unlicensed nuclear accelerator backpack that consists of raw nuclear energy and protons.


Some people like their marshmallows burned.

7) If someone asks you if you are a god, say YES!

Unless you like a bunch of purple lightening in your face.

6) Demon gods sport flattop haircuts, stiletto heels, and cat-suits made of bubble wrap. She’s Gozer. She does what she wants.


She must have an excellent dental plan.

5) You can write off the expenses of your house party as long as you invite the clients instead of friends.


I’m giving this whole thing as a promotional expense, that’s why I invited clients instead of friends.

4) This is a dog.


I think it wants a Milk Bone.

3) The Vinz Clortho the Keymaster is a bumbling, raving mad lunatic with a love of coffee and lampshades, while Zuul the Gatekeeper is a sexy vixen who wears a lot of bronzer, hyperventilates and levitates. Just in case you run into one of them on the street.


Boys have a key. Girls have a gate.

2) If you are a scientist, you can tell people to back off and they will.

Ghostbusters back off man

1) Don’t cross the Streams. Just kidding, cross ’em! Even if this means risking a total posotronic reversal where every molecule in your body explodes at the speed of light. Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.


They’ll be fiiiine…
