The New York Daily News takes on the Charlie Charlie challenge, where teens online have been trying to summon a demon using pencils.

Here’s how CNET explains it: The challenge “involves two pencils placed in the shape of a cross on a sheet of paper with two ‘yes’ and two ‘no’ answers written on opposite corners of the diagonal. A pencil is placed on one axis and the other balanced on top of it. Someone chants, "Charlie, Charlie, are you here?" and if the pencil moves, it means the players are in the presence of a Mexican demon.
