So my sister's "new" boyfriend is into Ghostbusters. As far as I'm concerned, those were a series of "meh" movies. I understand the "cult classic" thing, but this? I wasn't aware a "Ghostbusters club" was "a thing" at all.

His car's covered in Ghostbusters stickers, he owns a set of overalls like they do in the movies, and a backpack with flashing lights and the whole kit. He's driven from Canada to the States to get that backpack a few months ago, and then again last weekend apparently to get "a better one". Never mind the backpack, the expenses for the trip itself have got to have cost him a few hundred bucks (gas, meals, motel, money exchange, etc). His car's falling apart, so he's taken my sister's car for the trip. He's got a close to minimum wage dead-end job, no money, no ambition that I've ever heard him speak of. Every time he opens his mouth it's to say something about the comic book movie du jour. Not a great conversation piece for myself, and much less my folks.

This is a 50+ year old grown up man with his own grown-up kids...I was going to try to explain the cosplay culture to my dad, but I decided to let him fend for himself.

Where was I heading with this? Not sure. Why Ghostbusters? I don't see the appeal. As per my subject line...don't question hobbies, I guess...
