Creepypasta is the term for any spooky stories on the internet that are concoted by the impaired imagination of the internet. They are by default meant to scare the readers, but to say they are as childish as a convenience store's Halloween decorations is an understatement.
In YouTube Poop
Some of the more popular pastas are mentioned in today's YouTube Poops. Typically, one of the reputable characters from a pasta will be slapped onto the video for no more than two seconds on order to generate a cheap laugh from anyone who happens to know who it is.
Types of Pastas
Creepypastas are typically found on Wikia or 4chan where creativity is all the more nonexistent, thus every pasta can easily be categorized with a number of other tales of paper ghosts.
Serial Killer On The Loose
The most popular kind of pasta are ones that tell stories of scawy serial killers who are mad because all the kids at the park laughed at them because they tripped over a root, so 30 years later, they decide to take their malevolent anger out on children who don't look where their going. One existing photograph proves their existence, so be careful out there.
Video Game Pastas
A guy gets a cartridge of a video game that is cursed/haunted and wisely decides to turn it on. A number of thing can happen which can be the characters dying horrific deaths or the game glitching up and crashing because the victim never cleans his N64. After all the spoopy events, the game will explode. Now, when the victim is in bed at night, the game WATCHES HIM.
So you want to commit suicide because you don't have a boyfriend at the age of 13? Why go through the trouble of simply hanging yourself when there a demon in your mirror that will skin you alive, rape you, imprison you in his lair for 1,000 years, and then drag you straight to Hell. The reason these rituals are suicide is because there is no reward or way to survive since calling up a spirit to drag you into the mirror is kind of a one-contract deal.
And by notable, we mean overrated and not scary in the slightest.

– Narrator - Slenderman (A Myth of Humorous Exaggerated Proportions) by SINNED_tragedy.
A tall guy in a suit with no face stares at You from a distance, that's pretty much it. He has his own game of which the only real point is the wait for him pop up. What makes Slenderman a perfect example of human stupidity are the children who think he's real and sacrifice their friends to him so he won't scare them.
Jeff the Killer
A young serial killer whose face was burned off with acid and nowadays hides in your closet, telling you to GO TO SLEEP, because if you don't he'll throw shit at your face and then kill you.
