Why Kids Should Be Afraid of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and the Rest of Their Creepy Friends

Sandman

One of the most beloved mythical characters of childhood’s past is the Sandman. The folklore goes that this little dude sneaks into your room at night when you’re in bed, and sprinkles a bit of magical sand onto your eyes to ensure you fall asleep and have good dreams. Hell, there are songs about him!

Think about this, though: Here’s a dude who's said to sneak into your home at night, knock you out, and control your dreams. Mind control is one thing, but the part where he makes you magically fall asleep with a little bit of unidentified sand really gets us. What’s in that shit, granulated chloroform? That right there is the makings of a mythical organ trafficking business, or at very least an addiction to sleeping pills. Anybody want to bet what drug companies the Sandman owns stock in?
