Sandman (Religion, Folklore, and Urban Legends)

"I'm having a Mexican standoff with the Sandman. He's winning."

Mexican Standoff refers to a cinematic situation where two or more characters have their guns pointed at each other, effectively having reached a stalemate. This can evolve into a very tricky fight sequence, a terse discussion, or romantic banter, depending on which genre is covered. The Sandman, meanwhile, is a popular folklore figure who sprinkles magical sand onto children to make them fall asleep and dream — somewhat more creepy than the brooding, intense comic version by Neil Gaiman, if you ask us.
