Local Psychic Contacts Area Man’s Deceased Family Member…..

with 3 comments

Houston, TX-While attending a reading by psychic Jim Erwin today, Houston fireman Frank Woods was caught by surprise when the clairvoyant began to communicate with a deceased family member. Woods, who had sought out the expertise of Erwin for help resolving a longstanding personal matter, was initially skeptical.

“I don’t know how he did it, but he definitely found Cousin Mabel,” Mr. Woods explains. “I never believed in this kind of stuff before, but only psychic powers could have revealed that her name started with an A, C, D, G, K, M, P, R, T, or W. And how else could he have know about her lifelong enjoyment of some kinds of food.”

On the subject of his miraculous ability to communicate with the dead, Erwin reveals “I don’t have any control over this. The spirits come to me and give me whatever message they feel must be passed on to the living. For example, how they might have once lived near a boat, or near a body of water, or something blue, or that they liked water, or to fish, or to eat fish.”

  2. Hmm, 10 letters out of a possible 26… what is that, about a 39% chance of a hit? Woulda been really cool had he guessed her age was somewhere between 0 and 120! And how could he know some humans prefer some types of food?? Classic cold reading… gotta love it… or hate it.

  3. You know it’s satire right Mike? But in reality it is pretty much that bad.
