When you think of the ’80s, neon leotards, wild hair, and arcade games might spring to mind, but no cultural recap would be complete without mentioning the iconic “Ghostbusters.” Donning their khaki jumpsuits, armed with proton packs and Ecto-1 on speed dial, this team of quirky parapsychologists set out to capture the spooky specters haunting New York City. The film not only conquered the box office but also left an indelible mark with its catchy theme tune and the lovable, gooey green ghost, Slimer. It’s a supernatural adventure that humorously blends science fiction with slapstick comedy, making it a cinematic treasure still cherished by fans across generations.

Now, given the franchise’s comedic foundations, it’s no surprise that “Ghostbusters” has spawned a slew of jokes and punchlines. “Why did the Ghostbuster go to the party? To exorcise and socialize!” Or “What do you call a cleaning supply used by the Ghostbusters? Ecto-Plunger!” These jokes play with the movie’s themes and characters, giving fans a delightful dose of humor that’s as spirited as the specters they chase. So, the next time you’re at a gathering and someone asks, “Who are you gonna call?” You can confidently respond with a Ghostbusters joke to get the laughter rolling!
