More on Bogies

I recently brought up the subject of Bogies - dwarfen creatures who were said to be the servants of the Devil. In particular, I was discussing how an EVP recently featured on the Ghost Hunters show sounded like it said, "I want my bones," which is what Bogies were said to have moaned (their "Whachoo talkin' 'bout, Willis?" catch-phrase).

Then I was reminded that there are pictures and even film which purport to show images of dwarfen creatures. In fact, while not necessarily identified as Bogies, these creatures are not altogether uncommon. Reports of them most often come up around locales associated with Poltergeist activity - more specifically, sites generally associated with tales of human suffering, evil deeds, and so forth, such as the Waverly Sanitorium.

The more I think about this, the more I see the need to classify these creatures as Bogies, along with all the Satanic associations.

But, of course, we all know about photographic fakery, which reached its zenith at the turn of the 20th-Century. I will post more about that today.
