The Black Stick Man - A Very Lonely Man
Have you ever heard of the "Black Stick Man"? In the recent years there have been numerous sightings of these stick men all around the world. They have the same shape as the stick men you would draw when you were younger, but in real life form. They seem to take extreme caution to avoid being seen, indicating they have some semblance of intelligence.
We have attempted to contact one of them, for a one-on-one interview, but as they evade being seen, this has proved to be a difficult task. The word on the street was that a more approachable one was spotted in the town of Delft in South Holland. We flew to Delft and sought him out. He apparently hangs out in a rough part of town littered with hobos, gangs, and hooligans.
The community all knew about this particular black stick man. They have named him Oliver, and he is reportedly pretty vulgar, flipping people the bird as they walk by. There is no known way to communicate with these black stick men, except via children. A few kids that frequented the area claim Oliver feels lonely and wishes he could talk to normal people. This is why he doesn't avoid being seen, as he seeks companionship. His dream is to organize a street performance with other black stick men, but he has been exiled from the black stick man community due to his audaciousness.
We are currently working on an electro-magnetic device capable of capturing the black stick men. We are currently working out the mechanics, basing the theory and design idea largely off of the Tesla coils used in the 1800's to capture ghosts. So far we've only been able to capture a spider that unfortunately became permanently crippled after the incident.
If you or anyone you know has ever captured one, please write in and share what you've learned. We have a dedicated team of super natural experts, including wizards and science majors who are working around the clock on this project. So please help us discover more about these lonely black stick men.
