Who/what is "Slender Man"
and why was this photo of him posted on our Message Forums? Find out what's really going on!

Just so you know, "Slender Man" is a fictional character and we don't expect him to actually show up in a photo unless it's photo-shopped

Ron posted this photo on our Forums. He writes, "When I saw this picture after taking it, I thought like everyone else, it looks fake or the image looks super-imposed. And that's what a lot of people are really telling me.  But it can't be, because I was there and I took the photo, so I know differently".

In actuality, we feel that Ron was not completely honest with us concerning this photograph (in our opinion).  The members of our forum were actually able to quickly compile evidence against it's credibility and they solved the mystery to our satisfaction. Read about it in our Forums and make your own determination.

What's the Real Story concerning

Here's information on "Slender Man" that we researched

Apparently he's not so legendary after all... just conjured up in a forum called "Something Awful" in 2009. Read on to learn more...

The Slender Man

Dressed in a black suit and with no visible face the Slender Man is a terrible apparition with arms that stretch wide to entrap his chosen prey. Towering high the Slender Man hunts children with a voracious appetite, stalking them through parks and play grounds, and has even been known to attack children within their dreams. Due to his attire the Slender Man has been linked to the notorious 'Men in Black', who are thought to be Government agents who harass and threaten UFO witnesses, and who some believe to be Aliens themselves.

The Slender Man is a heinous monstrosity who with tentacled appendages lurks in the dark, sniffing out and spying on small children, waiting to snatch them away. And as with many other monsters and Demons of popular legend the Slender Man frequently turns up in 'real' ghost photos, sightings, and stories. The only problem with this being, is the Slender Man is completely 100% made-up.

The Birth of the Slender Man

The Slender Man was born within the 'Something Awful' forums in 2009, when a thread was created to challenge members to create fake photo-shopped paranormal photographs. The idea however was not just to create these images, but to also filter them through the internet, in a bid to convince those who sought out such things, that the images created were authentic 'real' ghost/alien photographs. Many excellent images were created by the forums users, but it was one in particular created by 'Victor Surge' that caught the imagination of all who stumbled across its trail, and so began the legend of the Slender Man.

Something Awful Lurks

Despite the Slender Man being a complete fabrication his legend has spread like wild-fire throughout the internet, and since his humble creation within the Something Awful forums the Slender Man myth has grown in strength and scope, and is now widely regarded as a successful 'Internet MEME', a phrase used to describe a catchphrase or concept that spreads quickly from person to person via the internet, much like an esoteric inside joke, that evolves with time.
