Thankfully the photos are more or less PG-13 rated. Some of these stories sound like they'd be too over the top for a Saw movie.

Remember, truth can be stranger than fiction, because fiction has to make sense.

My mom got an intensely creepy letter in the mail from her dentist's practice in 2004. I need to find out of she kept it, because really, how do you even begin to inform patients of something like this? The whole thing reads like a "no way is this true" urban legend. But really, I totally know someone...

No mention of BIE?

Even I'm Perturbed.

You know what is really creepy about that story?

Your mom's dentist did four months in jail for that. Then the NC Board of Dental Examiners reinstated his license. He's a practicing dentist *right now.*

I'm sleeping with the lights on tonight, but before I do I will say a prayer thanking God for self regulating industries to keep us safe from sickos and predators.

Hey, are there suburban legends too? Like, maybe an evil soccer mom, or a haunted 7-11?

Our local college football team built their stadium on top of a Civil War prison camp's burial ground. Everyone called it "The Boneyard", and they even painted bones around the stadium walls.

After a few decades, I suppose younger people refused to believe that the school would do such a thing, and it became a well-established "urban myth".

Then, a few years back, the school decided it was time to tear down the old stadium that had been used for 50 years, and build a new one. They recovered approximately 150 bodies from the grounds.

Did anyone die mysteriously during the construction of the new stadium?

I remember that when I lived there. I'm surprised someones husband didn't shoot him.

Listen to me. We've traced the call... it's coming from inside the house!
 
2012-10-29 03:54:23 PM  
I had not encountered most of these before, but the pool one and the doll one are creepy as fark. How could you sleep in a house with 29 doll-faced bodies around you?

We saw Sinister over the weekend, sort of average in the 'haunted house' bits but the home movies really creeped me out, with the music and the 'could be real' vibe... stuck with me after we got home. Yuck.

Uhh.. I don't think any of those things are urban legends. Just "weird stuff that happened".

Hey I saw that this weekend too. Did you think the bad guys name was Mr. Boogie the whole movie like I did? I thought maybe he was related to Disco Stu.

You know who the real heroes of that story are? The women who were like, "um, yeah, I'm pretty much an expert on what semen tastes like, and that was semen." I would have been all "Hey, that tastes like sem... um, like something I don't know what it tastes like! You sick bastard." 

Respect.

Yeah that was an awkward conversation to have with mom. "So yeah, when you left there, was your mouth like...minty?" Apparently she wasn't in the group that they suspected Dr. Jizzentooth of having targeted.

I shiat you not, this is the last line in the ABC News article about the guy who decapitated himself:

""I was just shocked. Why would people do such stuff," said Merlyn Keefer, another neighbor. "We can't ask him what really went through his head.""

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

Damn, a dentist could do that to me and I would not know. I, I really don't like entertaining the idea that I should know what semen tastes like in case my dentist decides that my teeth need whitening.

What about the sickos and perverts that get jobs with the government agencies charged with regulating the regulated industries?

What about the sickos and perverts in the federal and state legislatures?

Or does that not happen?
