This is a story that has been set in many different locations and with variations. It is an urban legend.

A young girl wants to attend a dance, but her parents will not allow her. She sneaks out of the house and shows up to where the dance is held and meets a young man whom she dances with. There is something a little strange about the way he is dancing and when she looks down at his feet one is like that of a goat and the other like that of a chicken and she lets out a scream. Another woman in attendance makes the sign of the cross and the man disappears in puff of smoke leaving a foul odor in wake.

Perhaps one of those tales to serve as a warning to young girls about strange men or not obeying parents?

i think its the embodiment of a fear of people you like not being what they seem to be, you know, wrong first impressions, although its probably told by parents to teens for the reasons you mentioned. grin2.gif

Every year, hundreds of thousand of “dev” sighting are reported in Iran, last dev sighting outside Iran was in Canada on oct.18, 1999… a festival called Mohrgan!  A club go-er reported seeing three well dressed men, entering a building…. He said he didn’t think to be odd, until he noticed they weren’t shoes, and they have hoofs!

Iranian believe in different races of human, It comes from that mystical world of their old religion, we have a race people called “Devs”, Dev’s are a race of being that were the complete opposite of humans, example when they are a sleep (daytime) their eyes are open, they also rule the night, but not in a way bad.  They are just like us, they families, job and even  their own religion, they are a class of peris (fairies), they look and sound like us, they are even bilingual, speaking their own language, they language the of the country they live in, the only physical difference between a Dev and a humans, is that the have hoofs for feet.

Would anyone have had a grudge against these devs, maybe thats why they got such bad press.

well, Devs have two sub-cats, Light and Dark, the light devs were good, and tried to help "man", while the dark, would play pranks, etc!  The devs have had a bad rep since the very first time they are were mentioned, something about them being envious of humans.  Later when Islam came to Iran, it tried to make all class of persi's evil, the idea of the persi's being evil only lasted a few years, but the devs, haveing hoofs ( assistcion with devil) stuck.

MIM, the word devil or demon is roothed in the this mythology of the Dev. I not sure if it ws greeks or romans that first start use it in this context (evil).

i think its unlikely, as what girl does not check out a mans shoes before dancing with him?

if the eyes are the window to the soul then your taste in shoes are a window to your taste in fashion.

i mean who would dance with a man in brown brogues?

I find it interesting how many cultures on Earth seem to have myths based around men with the legs of goats(Greeks, Celts, Iranians, etc.)  Maybe there's something to this after all...

very good MIM...Djinn’s are another race of Peris, they lived in daylight and on the same plain of exist with us.   Djinn have sub-classes also, but the most well known of this race are “Jeannie” from “I dream of Jeannie”, Aladdin’s Jeanie, and a horror movie called “The Wishmaster”.  I have never met anyone who’s why the Djinn have the power to grant wishes or why the wishes granted always have a bad ending, but it’s widely know that Islam banished them from our plain of existents, those who didn’t leave were imprisoned in inanimate objects!

Urielsfire, they don't goats legs, it's only their feet, starting from their ankles!

i think Urielsfire was referring not to devs in particular, but to all the goat-limbed (that would mean with feet or legs) mythical creatures.
