It Terrifies Me.

I was spending some time with two of my male friends late one night. We were watching various YouTube videos, and suddenly one of them asked me if I'd ever seen Salad Fingers (a fairly well-known Flash series online). I told him I hadn't, but expressed an interest in it because I'd heard it was extremely strange. And, well, I usually like strange things. So he found the first episode and we proceeded to watch it.

I hated it. It almost gave me a panic attack. Just... everything about it. The music, the animation, the dialogue, the voices... it was all horrible. Well done, but horrible.

My friends, though. Ah, they are cruel. They forced me to watch the second episode. And I am serious when I say they forced me. They would not let me leave the chair. I would have closed my eyes, but there wasn't much point, with the noise being loud and all anyways. So I tried to deal with it.

It was about halfway through the second episode that I completely lost it. I broke away from the chair, flung myself on the sofa on the other side of the room, and started screaming into a pillow. I was shaking terribly. I thought I was going to throw up.

The boys finally turned it off, but they wouldn't leave me alone. They kept quoting it. "I like rusty spoons." "Let me caress this rusty kettle." "I wonder what they taste like..." And they kept making the slurping noise that the abomination in the series makes. I was almost in tears.

Even writing this story is making me feel sick to my stomach. I couldn't bring myself to find a picture from the show to use for this group's icon. I couldn't even search for rusty spoons, out of fear a picture from the show would pop up. It terrifies me, to even think about it.

I hate my friends.

I'm glad I'm not the only one, then. But my friends who made me watch it; they really are my friends. Close friends. They just like messing with me, immensely. And they did feel sort of bad afterwards. Sort of. I mean, they're boys. Dumb *****. But I love them anyway.

SheistheLorax, i completely agree with you. im usually into wierd crap too, but salad fingers touches some kind of primal fight or flight response in me as well. it's a horrible thing, and those so called friends who forced you to watch it are not really your friends. it looks like you would be much better off without them.

Ah, well, I admire you for even being able to watch it at all without losing it.

No, no, no. I've gotten nightmares about it. One night, a few nights after I watched it, I did not sleep at all, because I was so afraid. No... I can't learn to love it. Never.
