Do you remember the Michigan farmer who painted "COW" in bright orange on the side of one of his farm animals about 20 years ago? News stories said he did it annually because he had lost cattle to careless hunters.

If you do an Internet search on sites like www.snopes.com, you'll find that picture was a gag and the story the result of an urban reporter misunderstanding what he had been told. But it took on a life of its own, and to this day, you'll still see the occasional earnest newspaper references to people painting their cows during hunting season.

Dangnation.. Does that mean we have no link that site? It does look interesting from the concept: A website about Urban Legends, who would have thought about it...
