Three nights ago, around 3am, I had just returned to bed when my 21 year old son turned on the upstairs hallway light and bounded into my room and was fairly frantic. He had just seen what he described as a approximately six foot tall, black "stick figure" ( as he described it) gliding down our street, at a fairly rapid pace, although he could see it had two legs more akin to comparative stumps in proportion to the body. It was illuminated by our bright front porch light. This occurred as he opened our front door in order to let our dog outside. I stepped outside briefly to scan the immediate area and told him that it was my intention to walk the neighborhood, and locate it, possibly have a impromptu dialog, which he absolutely did not want me to do. Instead he asked me to lock all the doors and windows and stay inside
Black Stick Men Stick Men.Jpg The black stick man is another entity encountered in modern times. Not to be confused with the shadow man, incredibly he is even stranger. Stick men are supposed to look like totally black, thin, stick figure drawings, such as teachers would make in kindergarten. They have been reported as between average height to impossibly tall. Their heads are just a black circle with no facial features being discernible. They are totally two dimensional, without any depth. Usually they’ve been sighted walking along roads at night, or at transitional times such as twilight or just before dawn. Bizarrely, some have reported them wearing what appears to be a top hat. Their walk is described as a weird “lolloping” gait. They are surprised when actually seen, and have followed unfortunate witnesses on occasion. Their pace remains leisurely as they approach. Obviously to be pursued by such an otherworldly creature would be anything but pleasant, and those who have encountered them have been understandably terrified. So far however, apart from being bizarrely frightening, they have done no physical harm, and ultimately just disappear.

Good observation OhioPariah! I'm inclined to think that this is definitely a hoax.
