While on a bachelorette trip to New Orleans, a ghost-hunting couple was surprised when they photographed what they thought was a ghost’s penis. The discovery was found in John Lafitte’s Blacksmith Bar, a renowned ghost-hunting location in what many consider to be the most haunted city in the United States.
The tavern is named after John Laffite, a local famous for acts of piracy in the early 1700s. It is lighted solely by candles and has no electricity.

When the ghost-hunting pair peered into the bar’s fireplace for indications of treasure or a ghost, though, they were taken aback by what they saw.
“We didn’t catch a snapshot of anyone’s face, but we did catch a penis,” Corinne stated on their podcast Two Girls One Ghost.
“Do you remember Ghostbusters when they were brilliant green? This is a really dark blue.
“It’s like a penis that hasn’t been circumcised… It’s the most unnerving ghost photo you’ll ever see.”
The couple posted a photo of the so-called ghost genitalia to Instagram, which created a firestorm of controversy.
In the photograph, a faint white object with a somewhat phallic form is seen sticking out behind Sabrina’s head.
Fans of the program were eager to speculate on what it may be.
“It appears that unpleasant noods follow you into the afterlife as well,” one said.
“Omg hahaha straight out of her nose!” said another.
Although seeing a ghost penis is a rare occurrence, the duo said that seeing John Lafitte is more common.
“People see him all the time,” said Corinne, the host. If this is your usual drinking location, you’ll almost certainly run into John Lafitte.”
In fact, the ghost looks to be a bit of a ladies’ man. “Some ladies, according to online accounts, experience a flirtatious squeeze while in the restaurant; Presumably John,” Corinne said.
Corinne and Sabrina were catching up on their podcast after their vacation and discussed the history of John Lafitte’s Blacksmith Bar.
“There aren’t a lot of records on John Lafitte’s life, “they stated “We don’t have a lot of information about what happened.”
They did say, though, that Lafitte was a pirate who had previously fought against – and then with – the US Navy.
Following his retirement from the seas, ghost-hunting specialists speculated that Lafitte and his brother operated out of the structure that is now the bar named after him.
Lafitte “must have died back in the 1720s some time,” Corinne speculated, “since he kind of disappeared off the map after that.”
