What is your fave Urban Legend? Alligators in the sewers of New York City? A guard dog found with the fingers of a burglar in his throat? The drunk driver who finds the dead body of a young girl embedded in his car's grill? VW Beetle found crushed between two trucks? Young boy dies from eating Pop Rocks and drinking Soda?

the baby in the oven one. That one is a keeper. Sad thing is is that I have heard that this has really happend. Oh wait, that is what makes it a Urban legend right?:) but no, I have heard outside of legend, and in papers that back in the late 70's or 80's that someone really did this.

Lost Legends The Mississippi state legislature removed fractions and decimal points from the mathematics curriculum of public secondary schools. Television's Mister Ed was a horse. Mobile homes are so named because they can be moved from place to place. The design of the California state flag was the result of a mistake. The Kentucky Fried Chicken chain changed its name to KFC in order to eliminate the word "fried" from its title. The nursery rhyme "Sing a Song of Sixpence" originated as a coded message used for recruiting pirates. The derisive title of one of George Bernard Shaw's plays was changed after it wreaked havoc on theater attendance. When the Titanic hit an iceberg in the north Atlantic, the silent version of the film The Poseidon Adventure was being screened aboard ship.
