I think creepypasta is stories made to scare children into beliving that their imagination can become deadly if they go to far with it. like the Luaghing Jack story for example, It was just a father who had such a strong imagionation he imagined the same things his son did and accidently took the imaginary character called 'laughing jack' way to deep into his thought, making him belive every horrifying thing that happened to his son and dog, was done by a clown a younge child made up just to havew the company and security of a smiling face.  I need help, I dont know If I'm right on this one, sadly.
