It took so long walking home from school, my feet were killing me. When I got home I threw my shoes into my closet, and then a skeleton popped out.

The phrase "AND THEN A SKELETON POPPED OUT" is often used to point out that the ending of a creepypasta is predictable or just downright shitty.

Basically, to use it, suddenly end your story with ", and then a skeleton popped out." Instant horror story.
I went to walk my dog, and I couldn't get the front door to open AND THEN A SKELETON POPPED OUT!
