Don't Say Flopperjack

Woods, New Zealand

In the early 1600's, there lived a boy named Jack. Jack didn't have a family so he lived alone in the woods. It was a rough life, cold days and scary nights with creatures lurking about in the dark.

Jack spent his days making weapons out of trees and dead animals, until one day, when he was sharpening a stick, he cut himself with a rock. "Oh, Flopperjack!" He said. All of a sudden, an exotic creature appeared before his eyes. It was big, fat and dirty. It reminded Jack of a troll. Jack was scared of this creature, so he raised his weapon and threw it at the beast. The beast lunged forward onto Jack crushing him like a paper cup. Jack was killed that night.

Legend is that if you say 'Flopperjack' the troll-like beast will appear and kill you.
