Urban Legends

Urban Legends Tired of people telling you that one of your favorite stories -- told to you by a friend who wouldn't ever lie and who knows the person it happened to -- is just an "urban legend" or "urban myth," implying that it isn't true? Well, folklore specialists will tell you that even though a story is a legend, it may very well be based on truth.

So the next time someone tells you that the cool anicdote about secret gang signs or the thing your grandma told you about why you shouldn't eat before going in swimming isn't true, bring them here. We've got the exciting, wholly fabricated details behind many popular urban legends, and we're not afraid to spell them out in glorious detail. Who needs the boring old truth anyway?
