So my aunt was in an elevator...
Urban legends & myths get a boost with every innovation in the way we communicate. The SAME exact effing ones get recycled from stories we told in the 80's, then as weird 24 pt, bold, colored font e-mails in the 90's, to today's moronic FaceBook posts.

Just recently I read the one about [insert famous black guy] on an elevator, blah, blah, blah... then the next day my friend's aunt got a bouquet of $100 bills with a note stating how funny famous black guy found the mix up. The first time I had heard it was roughly 30 years ago.

So my question is, which urban legend WILL NOT DIE no matter how many years go by?
I've totally given up, or in, and now I just like to hear them.

Got it? Good. Go! (No seriously, leave! Because the call is coming from inside the house!)




Bonus points: Make up a new one that we can start on twitter or FaceBook or whatever. The genre needs some new blood in my opinion.

that rat in the bucket of fried chicken hangs around like a set of old luggage in the garage.

I am (hangs head) ashamed to say I don't know about that "elevator story",  since I am assuming it is a PG elevator story. I love the "waitress gets winning lotto ticket" tip, it makes my heart yip yip with joy.

I like to tell my students that if someone slaps them on their back when they are crossing their eyes, their eyes will stay that way. laugh

I also tell them other stuff that I don't want to share. All of it makes my day more enjoyable and keeps me loving my job. AND, a happy teacher makes happy students.

part of it has to do with where i work, but i know several people who honestly believe men have one less rib than women..............(i'm sorry. allow me to dot that out).................................................................................................

when i snarl at sam the dog, he'll snarl back. so sometimes we have a snarl-off. and there have been times when we played for so long that both of us freaked out a little bit that our lips were stuck that way.

i won't flash my lights at drivers at night if their lights are off. it's dumb, but i just don't care enough about rodents crossing the road to risk being bludgeoned by a spiky baseball bat

in texas, if you're drinking a lone star and see a dead armadillo, you have to do this or god will smite thee

Hmm, besides the don't flash your lights one, I don't think I know any.

I heard one about falling asleep in a tub of ice, only to wake up with internal organs missing.  I guess if you fall asleep in a tub of ice you are destined for serious issues one way or another.  But just in case, yet another reason to shower instead of taking a bathwink

I used to hear when I was a kid that if you ate pop rocks and drank soda (pop for a lot of you, a coke for others), you'd bloat up and potentially die.

Also, the one Mom used to say...after eating lunch, you couldn't go swimming for half an hour (or an hour) because you'd get a cramp.  Now, that I'm a parent, I realize that my parents just wanted some rest time........

i have the song "aunt in an elevator" stuck in my head.
#14 | 537 days ago

Not sure if this falls into the catergory, but I had a youth group show up at the nursing home my mom's is in to sing some songs a few weeks back. While they were there, they asked me if I would play guitar and sing some songs. I sang about three or four tunes and as I was putting my guitar away I couldn't help but constantly peek over my shoulder thinking some 95 year old chick was going to grab me and try to talk me into doing the nasty.

surprise

For some reason that reminds me of the one night stand with a hot chick then waking up in the morning with "Welcome to the AIDS club." written in lipstick on the bathroom mirror. (True story, it happened to my college's buddy's brother's roommate at state. lol)

Both are like late 80's early '90's? And the ice bath starts with meeting a hot Asian chick at a club right? Apparently, the far east had a huge organ black market.

That if you look in a mirror with the lights off and say Bloody Mary 3 times a demon will appear. My sister in law told me that. How about the wg board (I know it is spelled wrong...hangover) spelling something like death and the girl threw it in the fireplace and it came back out and burned her face. My sister in law is old school Catholic.

My fave Ouija myth / legend / twilight zone one:

Two young couples spend weekend at a family cottage in woods. Blah blah blah, end up playing w/Ouija - 3 will die on the sound advice of the other at precisely 2 AM. "Oh man creepy, we should leave later, so we aren't caught out on the old counrty road at that time." "Good idea, Jen."

While driving back in the middlle of the night, radio DJ mentions daylight savings time and people should change their clocks. Clock in car is at 3 AM, then boom crash! Jen is the only survivor.

Typing in your pin number at the atm in reverse order will alert the police if you are being robbed. Just saw that one today. GAWD. People are stupid.

This has been going around in the music business for a few years now that Justin Beiber was fathered by Eminem.surprise

So, PIN's that are palindromic would send out the bat signal every time someone took out money. Seems legit.

Perpetuates the theory that most people are numerically / mathematically illiterate.
