The River Man

So, this is my second addition to my school-forum's Folklore thread. Unfortunately the forum is down for the moment, so you're in luck people as you'll see it before everybody else!! (I know there's no one actually checking this blog, but now you are, and you'll see this picture before the others... unless the school forum is back up again soon, in which case others will definitely have seen it before you , thus rendering the last 58 words completely rendundant).

This is Åmanden.. (Danish for the River Man). He is actually not described as a tangible visible being, but more an entity. Every time someone drowns in the river or any body of water it is said that he or she was taken by the River Man. If nobody has drowned for the last year or so, it is said that the River Man says "The time has come, but I still do not have my man.." and suddenly one of the people who hears this runs to the river and drowns him or herself and no one is able to stop them..
