Don't Call Charlie

A new challenge game is going viral. It's about connecting with a dead spirit from Mexico named "Charlie."

Fueled by thousands of videos from young people supposedly showing "contact," the game is played by placing two pencils in the shape of a cross on a piece of paper with the words "yes" and "no."Those present then repeat the phrase, "Charlie, Charlie can we play?" in order to make contact with the demon.

If "Charlie" is there, the pencils are said to move toward his answer.

If "present," then questions of any kind are asked…and answered.

To end the game, players say, "Charlie, Charlie can we stop?"

If you are ever invited to play this game, don't. In fact, flee the entire situation. Don't even be present as an observer.
