That glaggle-looking dude by the door is creeping me out.
Yeah, I say we bounce.

A glaggle is an unsettling yellow, smiley-face species from "Glaggleland," a bizarre fictional world (birthed from a creepypasta) featuring rides, treats, and exotic creatures imagined via the fandom's various memes. While the term is obscure, Glaggleland fans may refer to people online or in real life (IRL) as glaggles, likely confusing others unfamiliar with the fictional species.
The Glaggleland community (which does not like normies) has defined the characteristics of glaggles through various social media and forum posts. Some include possessing a joyful expression that hides something nefarious and a love of sweet treats (especially "thorn glognuts" in the shape of glaggles).
Origin of glaggle
The slang term "glaggle" comes from Glaggleland, whose origins are mysterious. Some believe Glaggleland started in a private, now-deleted Discord server, while others note that Glaggleland memes and videos first surfaced in 2021 from creepypasta stories on social sites like Instagram, YouTube, and Reddit, then spread to Twitter and TikTok from there. Gamers have also become fans, creating interactive iterations of Glaggleland in Roblox.
