Waffles would have been a very difficult thing for Donkey to make in Shrek's swamp..

On a similar note...

Swamp tales that take you to places as weird as the ones below do are nigh on impossible not to look at. Go on - you know you want to...

The Feast

Gwendolyn Brynn was always warned to stay away from the swamp near her house. >>Now that she has spent God knows how long wandering it with only Merimore Long for company, she understands why. >>Meri's constant invitation to "the feast" fills her with more dread than relief, and the child corpses she has to avoid only make the place more foreboding. >>And yet, with exhaustion slowly taking over her body and voices screaming in her ears, this begins to sound more and more appealing. >>Her choices are narrowing, and Gwen is acutely aware: one way or another, she's going to find out the secret of the feast. >>Cover made by LauraT98. >>Thanks so much!

I think the above is an appropriate name for our current situation.

"Nighcrawler" spotted years ago, what are they actually called?

I was with my brother and one of his girlfriends at the time. It was late night, not sure what time but could have been anywhere around 10:00 to midnight or so. We decided to go "exploring" in the woods. We were near a big swamp at a friend's house that night and said sure, why not. So off we went. We didn't even get that far, and then we noticed something short standing just a few feet away... so we walk up, and it's a #$@$ing pale "creature" with a very rounded head, no discernable features at night, just seemed like it had eyes but that's all I could make out... and long @$# legs. Just a big round head and two long legs. It just froze looking at us, as we were frozen looking at it, and then it turns around and runs. We do the same.

I saw a video on youtube talking about "Fr3sno nightcrawlers" some time ago and freaked out to see they are a real being that other's have seen. I've heard that Native Americans believed in them and that they did in fact come fromstay around swamps. I just can't remember what they are called... Either way, does anyone know their actual name? Has anyone else seen them? Any info is appreciated. Best to you!

My grandmother had always warned me to never walk into the swamp lands at night, unless I wanted to stumble into quick sand and become an easy target for the Pukwudgie to snatch away.

Luckily, these little glowing orbs are giving off enough light for me to see where I'm walking, so I don't have to be worried about blindly wandering into any muddy traps.

I'd bind them and I'd torture them but I'd never kill any of my victims.

It's the thrashing that lures the swamp gators.
