The latest Internet #teenmeme (I just made that up and want to trademark it) is about summoning a “Mexican” “demon” named “Charlie” using pencils. Yup.

The #CharlieCharlieChallenge has teens trying to summon the demon by crossing two pencils over a yes/no/yes/no grid, asking dear Chuck a question and then waiting for a pencil to move. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that there is no such demon as Charlie in Mexican lore and that all pencil movement is obviously made from an off-camera hand. Because this is dumb. BUT – don’t be persuaded by sensationalist mainstream news sources aiming to panic parents with occult warnings – this meme may be dumb but everyone who is doing it knows that.
