It did bounce around different celebrities but while I was at school in the 80s it was Marc Almond.
I imagine if I was at school now it'd probably be Kevin Spacey, Justin Beiber or Donald Trump.

Brayson87 said...

There was an urban myth for a while that Mr Rogers had been a decorated military sniper, but of course that was totally disproven/disavowed.

Surreptitiously dissolving aspirin in a Coca Cola with turn your date into a nymphomaniac.

Unknown said...

With regards to the Marianne Faithful story
It was actually a Kit Kat and not a Mars Bar.
She said she just fancied four fingers of goodness inside her.

Unknown said...

I always imagined some poor kid walking home shoeless when I saw that.

LaurenMaye said...

This doesn't exactly qualify as an urban legend, but most of the comments here didn't anyway. The Sioux Tribes tell some pretty creepy stories about the wendigo, skin walkers and dogmen. No doubt there are things out there we don't know about. Heard a lot of stories and they sound very sincere. No desire to see any of the above.

Vaccines cause autism.

Studio54 said...

@Little Miss Sunshine said...
Eating Twinkies can cause people to commit murder.

That came from the murder of Harvey Milk. The killer, Dan White, blamed the murder on consuming too much sugar, thus the name "The twinkie defense".

Large Marge said...

Gere. Gerbil. *mic drop*

Tigerlily said...

@LaurenMaye Other tribes also have windigo legends. Cree and Ojicree do. An excellent book by Joseph Boyden weaves the windigo legend into his book about Cree soldiers in WWI, Three Day Road. Highly recommend the book.

LaurenMaye said...

@Tigerlily, thanks for the tip, I will look for it :) I read a lot, especially like history of the old west and the American Indians. I think all the tribes have similar stories. They also mention the giants, very interesting. I only mentioned the Sioux tribes because it's closer to home.

Sd Auntie said...

crystal balls on a string. yes...lol

Do Tell said...

I think the majority of the posts here qualified as urban legends, actually.

Do Tell said...

@AListDiva, the "In The Air Tonight" UL goes like this:

According to the urban legend, as a boy, Collins witnessed a man who had failed to save a drowning victim, while Collins himself was too far away or otherwise unable to help. The UL then says that Collins spent years tracking down the man and when he located him, sent him tickets to one of Genesis's concerts. As the band began to play "In The Air Tonight," Phil directed the spotlight to shine on the culprit while he sang directly to him.

There are various and more extreme versions of this story, including the guy
losing his mind, getting dumped by his wife, etc, and most of them are posted at Snopes. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/in-the-air-tonight/

The song is actually a vent by Phil Collins about what he was feeling when he was going through a divorce. Which may be even creepier than any of the ULs as it is a pretty vicious song.

AListDiva said...

Thanks! Divorce is scary enough,thanks Phil :-/

Coffee Bean said...

That Michael Jackson had hundreds of platonic sleep overs...
With multiple children...
In the same bed...
With jars of Vaseline...
Left all over the room...
Among children's underwear...

Because only a great actor can pull off an urban legend.

The other one is Bill Cosby never roofied a star struck child actor.
A child pimped out by a desperate mother needing a fix.
Children don't need chemical enslavement to be raped, they just scream less if incapacitated.

Fuck you Pedowood.

17Steps said...

Pop Rocks and Mikey. Harmless and easily disproved.

Kiki said...

You win the thread! πŸ‘πŸΌ

GentleBreeze said...

They were making out in the car, the radio was on. A news bulletin declared the escape of a one-armed homicidal maniac from the local lunatic asylum.
Oh Lawd, they high-tail it out of there. When they stop for a breath, there.on the door handle.is a prosthetic hook.
Ahhhhghghghgh!!!!!

momo said...

Gentle, that is the BLOODY HOOK I love that one! ALSO Katy Perry iS Jon Benet!! That was an MSNBC marathon story ala OJ. BTW yesterday OJ tweeted a pic of himself with a White Bronco on Twitter. It was Elway. ;

Unknown said...

Haha...there was a set of these wrapped around some wires near the home I grew up in for over 30 years.

Unknown said...

Do Tell me more.
I've not heard this one.

Unknown said...

I hope not.
I'm getting my flu jab in a bit.

And the song was called In The Hair Tonight.

Which brand is the soft drink that turns you gay? That was a big one in primary school.

Matt said...

This might be an urban legend, but I have a friend who attended New Orleans Loyola University in the 90s. One very rainy Sunday evening he and his girlfriend were standing at the streetcar stop when one of those Marathon cabs pulled up. The driver asked if they needed a cab and as wet as they were, they agreed. The driver asked where they were going and my friend told him they were going to the Quarter to listen to some music. At that point the cab driver said he had a better venue and better music for them at which point he took them to a little bar called Madigan's to listen to the great John Cleary play. After they arrived the driver refused the fare--it's just minutes from Loyola--and bid them farewell.
My friend--who is not prone to hyperbole--to this day is convinced it was Dylan messing around on a Sunday night.

What makes me think it was Dylan was the fact that he was in town working with producer Daniel Lanios and that he (Dylan) had shown up barefooted in a hoodie another Sunday evening. He quickly left, I am told by the bartender because he was recognized.

I really want this to be true.

Little Miss Sunshine said...

Robert Downey Jr. is a Himmmm.

Em22 said...

@Sd I thought it was Silver Bells on a string?....

Em22 said...

Lifting your feet and holding your breath while driving over a bridge... Did something... Lol, i don't what happened if you didn't make it, fell off the bridge, maybe?!

AListDiva said...

Not an urban legend, but Whitney H was definitely a lesbian and her long time friend Robin was her lover! The escaped mental patient leaving his hook in someone's car door was my favorite that scared the crap out of me as a kid!

momo said...

Matt that is weird. I worked at Madigans as the bartender for a while, must have been 87 or so. Dylan was all over the place at the time. I ran into him more than once, but I didn't work the John C. gig night which may have been when he'd come in.
