What the legend of Squishplop at New Fork Lake
March 26, 2013 11:10 PM   Subscribe

As a child I remember being scared to death by a Wyoming ghost story called "Squish Plop" involving a zombie like smoke jumper who has no legs and moves with a distinctive squish-plop noise as he crawls on his hands. I want to remember the whole story, but I've only been able to find references to the story but not the actual story. Please help me remember this old ghost story.

There's a similarly brief and allusive invocation in the suspense novel Chelsea's Doom. But there's a whole rundown in the 1995 book Games and Great Ideas:
A Guide for Elementary School Physical Educators and Classroom Teachers
where it's part of a haunted house scenario.

You may also want to investigate the book Ghosts on the Range: Eerie True Tales of Wyoming, which you can basically buy for pennies over shipping.
