The Best Disney Memes of the Week (January 7, 2023)

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Creepypastas. Many of the most famous creepypastas originated on the Something Awful forum, where people would share their craziest “true” horror stories. People tried their hardest to create the most believable and terrifying scary stories, usually starring their own original monster. The most recognizable Creepypasta protagonists include Slenderman and Jeff The Killer, but one of my favorite Creepypastas was called ‘Abandoned By Disney.’

In ‘Abandoned By Disney,’ the Disney Corporation created and promptly abandoned a theme park based on The Jungle Book. When urban explorers go to the dilapidated theme park, they see terrifying things, like a skull in a Donald Duck costume and a photo-negative Mickey Mouse costume that talks in a Mickey Mouse voice. The most ridiculous part of the story is when the Mickey Mouse costume says, “wanna see my head come off?” I love stories like these because they are so specifically designed in a way that only a 12-year-old would find scary. There’s something so beautiful about that kind of horror story, and I’m glad the Disney brand could be a part of it. If I may be so bold, ‘Abandoned By Disney’ beats ‘Squidward’s Suicide’ any day.
