From The Vault - Slimer 3:16

 By Paul Rudoff on Aug. 24, 2009 at 12:00 PM , Categories: Spook Central, Fans, Internet , Tags:
Ten years and two weeks ago today I spotted a pretty cool Ghostbusters reference on the August 9, 1999 episode of the World Wrestling Federation's flagship program Raw Is War. I promptly reported it to Chris at Proton Charging, and he posted the following two days later.

"LISTEN! YOU SMELL WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKIN'?"

Pretty funny stuff.
A fan at this weeks WWF RAW telecast was holding up a sign that said "SLIMER 3:16". A Ghostbustin' nod to the famous "AUSTIN 3:16" (as in Steve Austin. Fans often spoof the sign), which is itself a nod to the even more famous "JOHN 3:16" signs made part of popular culture by that guy who used to show up at sporting events with his sign and a rainbow fright wig. He has a name, I just can't remember it.
Thanks to Paul at Spook Central for the use of the picture. Click on the picture or link to see Paul's much better and more complete screen grab.

The original post is no longer online, but a new version does appear on the main Proton Charging site. Besides that, the link to the full size image no longer works, so it's a good thing I had a my back-up.

Man, so much stuff has fallen through the cracks as I moved from the old manual blog to the newer automatic blog systems.

I've added the post back into the database again!

Thanks for putting it back into the database. That's cool. Feel free to take the full-size image, if you want. It doesn't hurt to have two copies of it floating around :-)
