Definition

Ghost.

During 1996-1998, the wildly unpopular British ambassador to India was named David Gore-Booth. The fact that he was called gora booth in jest ("white ghost") did nothing to endear him to the government of India. Or to Robin Cook, his disgruntled foreign secretary.

Usage

Don't go near that abandoned house! It's a booth bungalow!
