“If you’ve got it, haunt it”

"If you’ve got it, haunt it” is a Halloween saying that has been printed on many images. “That’s it, baby, when you’ve got it, flaunt it, flaunt it!” is a famous line from the 1967 Mel Brooks-directed movie, The Producers.

“So I’m tickled to get one more shot at the magical mystery that Halloween extends to everyone: If you’ve got it, haunt it” was printed in Town Talk (Alexandria-Pineville, LA) on October 31, 1983. “The sexy witch...if you’ve got it, haunt it, in a French-cut sequinned leotard, black net stockings, silver lame gloves and a box of orange turkey feathers” was printed in The Plain Dealer (Cleveland, OH) on October 25, 1984.
