My Favourite urban legend would be the babysitter one its creepy so much in fact (to me anyway) that when i watched the movie version (even though i knew wat happened at the end) the part when the guard told the girl that the call was coming from inside the house i got a shiver down my spine *shudders* :D

My favourite urban legends are:
The hook
The spider in the hairdo
The kidney heist...

usually itīs very difficult to answer, because i love a lot of urban legends.  :wub:

Me only have one ambition, y'know. I only have one thing I really like to see happen. I like to see mankind live together - black, white, Chinese, everyone - that's all.

The slender man urban legend scared the hell out of me. I had trouble sleeping after I heard of that one, and even though it's a confirmed hoax it's still my favorite one.  :lol:

That one where the babysitter drops some acid, and decided to cook a turkey, which turns out to be the kid she was watching. How totally stupid and helarious <img src="http://www.unexplain...>/original.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="original.gif" />
In the version I've heard it was PCP. Anyway my favorite is the story of rawhead and bloody bones.

Ya think life's a joke eh? Well, I ain't laughing, but I'd be happy to show you what funny is!

Hmm rofl i can't pick any favourite one, but the hitchhiker, hook man, and various other ones.

I remember this one story that scared me as a child still does, and i still don't like wandering near my old elementary school at night

Anyways it goes like this that there's an evil clown (Think Pennywise) who lives in the boiler room and devours kids who go to the school late at night without any of their friends. I remember walking home once and thinking i saw him looking at me from the roof. I ran all the way home that day. Also now i don't think i'll be able to sleep well xD

I know that onions aren't the only vegetable that can make you cry
Getting whacked in the face with a potato seems to do the trick

I like the one where this lady is home alone with her dog at night, while shes in bed she feels the dog lick her hand, then she hairs "drip, drip, drip" she gets up and goes to the bathroom to see if any taps are dripping. Not the taps. So she pulls back the shower curtain and sees her dogs head mounted up in the shower dripping blood. Who the hell was licking her hand?

Classic lol.

When I was a young girl, an older person told me about Bloody Mary. (I was a really big scaredy cat.) It absolutely terrified me. It still gives me the chills even though it's not true.

BEK is pretty creepy too. Also, the resturaunt myths were there's something nasty in your food or someone finds something like that.

Carmen Winstead in sheer scariness (and other Facebook chain mail):

They pushed her down a sewer

About 6 years ago in Indiana, Carmen Winstead was pushed down a sewer opening by 5 girls in her school, trying to embarrass her in front of her school during a fire drill. When she didn't submerge the police were called. They went down and brought up 17 year old Carmen Winstead's body, her neck broke hitting the ladder, then side concrete at the bottom. The girls told everyone she fell... They believed them.

FACT: 2 months ago, 16 year old David Gregory read this post and didn't repost it. When he went to take a shower he heard laughter from his shower, he started freaking out and ran to his computer to repost it, He said goodnight to his mom and went to sleep, 5 hours later his mom woke up in the middle of the night cause of a loud noise, David was gone, that morning a few hours later the police found him in the sewer, his neck broke and his face skin peeled off.

If you don't repost this saying "She was pushed" or "They pushed her down a sewer" Then Carmen will get you, either from a sewer, the toilet, the shower, or when you go to sleep you'll wake up in the sewer, in the dark, then Carmen will come and kill you.

I learned it was fake, though.
