Title says it all.

My personal favorite is the Legend of the Melonheads. And werewolfs, can't forget werewolfs.

I like the one with the old lady that rides a werewolf so hard and long that his legs fell off.

I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

I quite like the Bible, but have not finished reading it all yet, they keep adding bits on.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Never heard about that one....  a linky, Hazz?

Gerbil and Richard Gere...

Or...

Rod Stewart, and a Quart of ( not sure I can say ) pumped out of his stomache.


I never could believe people bought into those, and still do.

That gerbil and Richard Gere one is LMAO ridiculous
The Rod Stewart one is just gross although they have said that one about a number of different people, Elton John, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Jon Bon Jovi, Alanis Morissette, Britney Spears and Lil' Kim, to name but a few.

Britney Spears and Alanis are almost believable :)

My favourite urban legend is an old one I'm not going to describe in detail.  I'm sure many here have heard it before and it involves a woman a dog and either mayonnaise/jam/peanut butter and being interrupted by her boyfriend/flatmate/etc. in the middle of a very rude act, etc.

I love it because I've heard 2 people tell me the story and swear it happened to a "friend of a friend" of theirs.

That is a real thing, disgusting.....I could find video to support this, but no way......


I just had a BBQ / Horse Shoe tourney a couple weeks ago. One of my friends asked if he could bring peanut butter for my dogs, and if they could have alone time......He was joking, I hope.
