Post them.

When I was younger, me and a few friends would go camping with my dad in the woods.  He'd always tell us the story of "Bow Wow".

A little black dog named "Bow Wow" was chasing a whitetail buck through the forest, and the buck hops over a fence to get away from the dog.  Trying to run through the fence, the little dog completely decapitates its head.  
Late at night, you were supposed to be able to hear Bow Wow's head calling for its body.  "Bow Wow!  Bow Wow!..."

Sure, it seems silly now, but it's good memories.  It would always frighten us, though we hated to admit it.  Over the years, he would still bring it up, just as a joke.  Often, if my sister and her friends were outside in the yard, "pretend camping" (Fire and tent in the back yard..), I would tell them the story of "Bow Wow."  

I'm sure someone has more experiences like this..

thanks for the read shrine^^

we got a place up here where i live known as 3rd bridge. its a place about id say 45 minutes or more straight into nothing but a dirt road, trees, and grassy hills. Its supposly one of the most haunted places here in ol guud colorado'. The main background story to the place is that, back in the early days of colorado there was the colorado militia, and a tribe of native americans. On a particular day when the men from the tribe were out hunting, the colorado militia while heavily intoxicated basically raped and pillaged the tribe in a very brutal way. When the Men from the tribe returned and witnessed the horror that had became of there tribe, the militia just killed them too.

Fast forward a couple decades And a Insane asylum for the mentally ill was built in the general area due to its seclusion from civilization, a buss was transporting some patients to another facility in CO. There are two bridges before the third bridge given its name and theres several others beyond that, and on one of the bridges the buss was going over in a bad storm. lost control and Fell over one of the bridges, When the police came to investigate all the patients were dead and accountable for except for one, Who was admitted due to his cannibalistic lifestyle choice.

The actual site of all the weird reports is on the Third bridge its self, its over a feild of grass that you can go down under to but is not for the faint of heart. When standing on the bridge its self or in the car with the windows rolled up, people say a strange fog rolls in from no were, that is so dense you cant see anything out the windows. And you can hear what sounds to be drums playing some were out in the hills, But there are so many tales about this place that just get weirder from there that i can go on  for days.

We're playing with half a deck as long as we tolerate that the cardinals of government and science should dictate where human curiousity can legitimately send its attention and where it can not. It's an essentially preposterous situation. It is essentially a civil rights issue, because what we're talking about here is the repression of a religious sensibility.

That sounds a lot like Bunnyman...

The only legend we have around here is of a guy who walks along a railroad looking for his head, carrying a lantern. Very stereotypical.

These are the urban legends I think are stupid. I'll just link them instead of retelling them.

http://urbanlegends....lown_statue.htm
When someone tells you they're afraid of your clown statue, is your first thought really that it's possible an escaped mental patient is in your house?

http://webpages.char...urban/drag.html
If I've had my arms cut off, I'd think, "Screw the children," and get out of there.

Can't find a link to this one...
A stewardess is told someone named Timothy Gay has to get off the plane because there is an emergency at home. She calls out into couch, "Who here is Gay?"
A few passengers call back, "I'm gay!"
She says, "If you're Gay, you have to get off the plane!"
Just stupid.

One can always be kind to people about whom one cares nothing.

We think kids are people too? We must be insane.

You know that urban legend about alligators in the sewers. Well, it's not that ridiculous to me. You know that someone, somewhere, sometime, actually put an alligator in the wild, either in a river, lake, or sewer. Really wouldn't surprise me.

That earwigs climb into your ears at night-

Oh wait.

Yeah, that actually happened to me when I was younger and was out camping. I woke up in the middle of the night and there was this insanely loud noise, and for some reason the noise physically hurt. I was really lucky, I could have lost my hearing, but I suddenly felt a tingling in my left ear, and out came a tiny earwig >_>

Now I'm terrified of camping.

The most ridiculous Urban legend Ive ever heard
If you eat Pop Rocks candy while drinking soda you will explode and that's what killed little Mikey-"He likes it Hey Mikey"

Torture is only truly pleasurable when performed...slowly
The next words out of your mouth better be some brilliant Mark Twain bull cause it's being chiseled on your tombstone

My first thought would be John Wayne Gacy, which isn't any better. Or It, which certainly isn't any better. So all around I find that pretty creepy.

I find the most ridiculous kind to have completely farfetched creatures or like the pop rocks one. To me, the ones with intruders and such still aren't impossible.
