Jen Urban myths (and legends) (142* d) RE: Urban myths (and legends) 28 Jan 98


heh, I remember the one about the spider eggs in the bubblegum and I ate it anyway (strange child) Also remember the one about the "little boy from England who was dying and wanted to get in the Guiness Book of world records for most cards received..." that one's going around as an email urban legend now.

And the cookie one's recipe does really make good cookies...

My favorite one is about the girl who has her hair up in a beehive, doesn't wash her hair for weeks, and a cockroach gets in her hair and eats through her scalp to her brain and she dies. And the one about the girl who is about to go on a date, her hairdryer breaks and she attempts to dry her hair in the microwave...

can't tell I love these things, can you?

The Hook story was published in a recent "Ghosts in Ohio" book(don't remember the exact title) as a true story. I'm still debating whether to write the author and tell him its an urban legend.
