Just For Fun: Candlejack
Candle Jack in a rare nighttime appearaI still have the cameraman!

Describe Candle Jack here. He is a very handsome guy.
Well, that was fast.
As you can see, speaking or merely typing the name of this Freakazoid! villain (voiced by Jeff Bennett) will result in the speaker being abducted by said villain. Thus sentences tend to abruptly end when Candle Jack's name is spoke. Also, Spokane, Washington is a lovely city.
This is going to be a busy day for me, isn't it? Hopefully not...
A notable villain in that he had very few appearances, but was so memorable that everyone remembers the one where everyone said "Candle Jack" and goes offscreen for a couple of scenes.
You guys just aren't that fucking bright, are you? Or just plain retarded?
For those of you who came here actually looking for information, not in-jokes, that guy is a villain from the cartoon Freakazoid!. He looks a little bit like the Batman villain, the Scarecrow, or the Ben 10 alien Ghostfreak, a bit like Oogie Boogie, and kind of like the Pokémon Dusclops (or Darkrai). He's pretty creepy for a children's cartoon. He only showed up in two episodes; in the first he would kidnap and tie up anyone who said his name, much to the annoyance of the hero (and ultimately defeated by his love of pie), and in the second he spent the majority of the episode scaring Professor Jones. Memetic Mutation has popularized the Candle Jack abduction meme. Paula Abdul's very pretty, by the way.
Seriously.
In the original toons nobody got kidnapped in the middle of a sentence, but that's really the only way to make the joke funny in a written format. Though the general rule is that he's nice enough to hit Submit for you on the way out. And also spoiler mark it for you.
Might as well be polite.
Oddly enough, on GameFAQs, there seems to be a bit of Serious Business on whether Candle Jack deletes your signature or nEVER! I'm not that cruel.
I'm gonna need more rope.
Seriously, if you actually see someone complete their sentence after saying his name, it's a full six-pack in the drinking game. The only thing worse is when someone posts in a thread about him and disappears without ever having said his name.
24 months sober.
Candle Jack may or may not be a part of the SOCIETY. You're lucky I can finish off your laziness. That was probably on purpose.
Are we almost done here? I have an appointment to keep.
Now somewhat of a Discredited Meme, as can be expected if everyone who says 'Candle Jack' disapWhoa, hey, not my fault.

Has even infiltrated theOther Wiki - see the entry for Freakazoid!

This wave of abduction leads to an interesting question : Who clicked on the 'save' button to validate all those unfinished messages?
  • Candle Jack himself, of could conceivably go on forever if you guys don't learn, soon.
    • Oh, that's very polite of him! Thank you, kind Candle Jack, that's very kind of you're welcome.
      • This is getting ridiculous; I refuse to pretend that every time I say Candle Jack he cuts you off? Okay then!
      • When are people going to learn that saying Candle Jack is asking for trolling coming your way? You're making my job easy.
      • I still don't see what's so wrong about ending a sentence with Candle Jack. -Don't forget the full stop on the way out.
      • You guys are all idiots! At this rate, Candle Jack is going to have to charter a bus? Good idea.
      • I wonder what Candle Jack does to the tropers he kindly takes out for a drive? Why, we go for a nice brunch! I even pay for the little ones, too.
      • Will I be okay if I refer to his name as a foreign one? Like Candle Jacque or something similar? No, that won't help.
      • Okay, this is getting ridiculous. The cartoon this guy appeared in stopped airing years ago. I honestly don't think that Candle Jack is still ...I stand corrected.
      • I'm out of rope. Good going.
      • Alright, I think it's safe to say Candle Jack everybody. Nope.
      • Dear Mr. Jack, I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of an offer my company would like to make: Candle Jack Brand Rope.
      • What if I end my sentence with Candle Jack nope.
      • You know what? This is ridiculous. There's no such thing as Candle Jack. See? I finished my sentence. You definitely had that coming to ya.
      • I actually think he is a nice guy, he takes people to a nice tour around holding everyone tightly to him. Thanks Candle Jack. No problem buddy.
      • Oh come on, you really think i'd say Candle Jack- Son of a- Next word that comes out of your mouth better be gun. --bitch!
      • I can say it perfectly fine. Candle Jack. See that he's pretty handsome
      • This is killing me. Cabdle Jack could be right behind me. OOH! I typed "Cabdle" not Candle! Now he will never get me ever? Sorry poor fellow. Cabdle is close enough. You tropers are like lemmings. It- I escaped hi No you didn't
      • Guy seems nice. Hi, Jack Candle . Hi there, thanks
      • He is only a guy doing his job. Kinda silly but all in good fun. Light the Candle, Jack. Said candle is lit. You're welcome.
You just don't learn, do you? At this rate, you're all gonna be with me. Wanna bet? I brought help. Holy Cra

Proving that even Candle Jack is scared of the Goddamn Batman that Bale guy has a gravelly voice!

  • Guys, come on, seriously? Candle Jack doesn't exist. See? I finished the sentence and never should have done that

  • Candlejack can't get me. I'm finishing this sentence riiiiiiiiiiiiiii ght after this break

iiiiiight now

All we had to do was follow the damn train, Candle Jack! My rope leaving San Fierro with the yay again, right?
  • Right, Candle Jack, but they use bikes and go cross-country? I got this. DIE PUNY PUNK-ASS BALLA FOOL!
  • Can't be summoned when I say Cndlejck. No A's make no difference, buddy.

Hey Candle Jack? Is your birth name John Candle? Candle is my mother's maiden name. Try again.

At least we're safe from Candle Jack in The Stinger areactually not really. Darn it, I'm out of rope again.
>That does it, I'm calling Chuck Norris.
Forget Chuck Norris. Someone call Cosgrove. He'll point his finger at Candle Jack and tell him to Or, you know, you could just... stop typing my name. Seriously, people.
