Quotes: The Slender Man Mythos

There's a man of such slim frame
That it's become part of his name.
I saw him in an indie game
And I'm not too proud to say I came.
Slenderman, oh Slenderman,
Consider me your friend-erman
I long to feel upon my cheek
That icy touch so tenderman.

Slender Man, Slender Man,
all the children try to run,
Slender Man, Slender Man,
to him it's part of the fun.
Slender Man, Slender Man,
dressed in darkest suit and tie,
Slender Man, Slender Man,
you most certainly will die.
Slender Man, Slender Man,
his branching arms are for collecting,
Slender Man, Slender Man,
his face is empty of expressing,
Slender Man, Slender Man,
he won't let you say goodbye,
Slender Man, Slender Man,
you most certainly will die.
Slender Man, Slender Man,
sometimes hums a lowly drone,
Slender Man, Slender Man,
he will wander 'round your home.
Slender Man, Slender Man,
blends in well within the trees,
Slender Man, Slender Man,
in the fog he's hard to see.
Slender Man, Slender Man,
dressed in darkest suit and tie,
Slender Man, Slender Man,
you most certainly will die.
The Slender Man Song

All of this started because of Something Fucking Awful. Fuck Something Awful.

When anthro-historians of the cyber-future look back on the cultural artifacts of our civilization, caked beneath the mountains of kale from the First Apocalypse of the Genetic Modification Wars, it's going to be pretty fucking hard for them to piece together Slenderman. How will they decipher him from any of our other made up deities, what with the active cult following, numerous clubs dedicated to make believing he is real, and the actual killings in his name? How will we explain to the squid-men of the future that we always just thought of him as a fun joke or fantasy experiment (except for those murder teens, that shit is just weird)?
Maybe I'm overthinking this; it does seem that the popularity of Slenderman has diminished in recent years. Alternatives like Five Nights at Freddy's and your friend jumping out from behind of a corner and saying "boo" provide suitable Slenderman style scares. As I have previously stated in other Slenderman product reviews, I don't have an issue with the Slenderman concept and certain adaptations. Overall, the character is tired. There have been too many amateur adaptations, past the point where a truly great depiction is a long overdue conclusion. He, like Sonic, has become a parody in his own genre, consumed only by long term fans and sex freaks.
