Comment: Hi, i'm just writing to inform u of a few more urban legends that u don't have in
ur webpage.

At a taco bell in Halse Corners, WI, a cockroach was found in a taco right as
a woman was taking her first bite, and the cockroach was pregnant, and the
eggs had been planted in her mouth. She had to go to the hospital and get them
surgically removed. this is a true story, because i live in a city right next
to halse corners, and it was on the news. if you would like to call and
check, the phone number is (262) 425-0895 although i doubt they will
actually tell you it, but if you call people from around here, they will say
they saw it on the news also. the address is 5420 S. 1080 Halse Corners

2) my second story is about the kentucky fried chikin issue, umm, the deal
is, it wasn't really because the chikin wasn't fried, it was because it
wasn't real chikin. what they did to it, is, they would give the chikin some
sort of pill that would make it give birth to dead chikins with extra meat, and no bones, so unless they wanted it to be, Kentucky Fried Critters, they just had to leave it KFC.

3) Someone in my city made up this version of "now i lay me down to sleep)

it goes like this:

now i lay me down to sleep
with a cute boy, across the street
won't my mommy be surprised
when my tommy starts to rise

Meaning, she'll get pregnant

I think YOU'LL be even more surprised when you find out both you and your mommy are making your Tommy rise.

Why does this sound like a Jerry Springer episode?

Wow, is that convenient or what?
The chickens actually give birth...and not only to already dead chickens but extra meat also. And my family struggled in the poultry business all those years actually getting people to kill and bone the chickens and made do with just the chicken meat not the extra, imagine the money they could have saved. I guess the next pill the Colonel invents will make the chickens give birth to already fried chicken.

A) It is Hales Corners (suburb of Milwaukee). It has a very nice botanical gardens.

B) We can spell just fine, thank you. Idiots exempted, of course.

C) Brett Favre is a native of Mississippi.

D) Of course, this doesn't explain why we pronounce the town of Shawano "Shawno".

Sorry! I knew you were trying to be funny. Unfortunately, what I wrote came off sounding different on paper than in my head. (I was trying to be funny.)

I've heard an even better way is for a woman to caress her attacker's face, fingers over her ears, and plunge both thumbs hard into the eyeballs, puncturing both.

Comment: hi, do you know if the following is true?

--

THIS WAS FORWARDED TO ME... BEWARE WHEN WASHING HANDS IN PUBLIC!!!

From: Strain Theory
Subject: Piss Soap

I've been coming to your site for years...so on and so
on blah blah ass kiss ass kiss. I've been pulling this
one prank for years' and I think you'll understand my
genius.

Anyway I live in small town in central Florida called
apopka, one thing I've been doing for years is
whenever I go to a convienant store and the clerk is
either a dude or an ugly ass old lady, which is the
majority of the people here, I go to the bathroom and
if they have the type of hand soap dispenser that I
can open, I releive myself in the handsoap dispenser,
sometimes filling it all the way up to the top. Then I
wait in
the store, if it's busy, to see if anyone goes into
the bathroom and wait to see if anything happens. One
time I did it when I was with a bunch of friends. One
of them, who is a god damn germ freak (of course) was
one of my victims but I forgot to tell the guys not to
use the handsoap until I saw him eating a sub from the
place and licking his fingers, after he washed his
hands with my piss soap. It's pretty fucked up, I know
but god damn it makes me giggle every damn time I do
it. I want to start a whole underground network of
people that are doing this in stores and have some
sort of sign to let the other piss soap bandits know
that this is marked territory.

You're right, that is genius. You should mark the
front of the handsoap dispenser with a smiley face to
let other piss soapers know it has already been taken
care of.

Kind of reminds me of the secret society that was
going on in the movie Fight Club. Imagine if you
infect the a whole subculture with this and everyone
starts pissing into hand soap dispensers. Our culture
would never be quite the same.
Brilliant.

Wow, that's a lot of piss.
You should be very proud of yourself. I think the anti-bacterial agents in most soap would kill the nasties you just put in there (but, we never know, you could have something really icky). Good to see the fyuoooture of America has nothing better to do.

First of all, would referring to yourself as a piss soap bandit imply that you were actually stealing said piss soap.

Second of all, most dispensers like this are installed pretty high up on the wall. Making aiming a tough task.

Finally, who the hell washes their hands in a convenience store?
Employees by most state health laws have to have a seperate sink behind the counter area with soap and towels not just the piss soap in the bathroom.

There's probably something about specific density or viscosity or something else that I'm not thinking of...

Liquid soap is pretty thick. I know if you add water to it you have to shake it up to get the water mixed in to it. Otherwise it floats on the top. I'd assume pee would do the same thing.

If the soap dispenser is completely empty, on the other hand (no pun intended), you'd think the lack of foaming and/or the smell would be a clue.

Viscosity shouldn't affect how urine and soap mix. It's only a matter of solubility and density.

Urine contains urea and salt along with other nasties, but it's mostly water, and probably retains most of the properties of pure water.

I'm not sure, but I imagine liquid soap is less dense than water. It's more viscous than water, but I think the fact that it's oil-based gives it a low specific gravity.

If this is true, urine placed at the top of a soap dispenser would slowly seep down to the bottom.

There *are* a lot of factors in this problem, and I wonder if the surface tension would be enough to keep the urine at the top of the dispenser, preventing it from sinking.

I'm doing a research project on rheology this summer, and I wonder if I should ask my advising professor about this conundrum. Hm...

Maybe not.

The piss soap thing reminds me of a guy who used to troll newsgroups a few years ago. He posted a message on 5 or 6 of them saying not to buy conditioner or shampoo at a Wal-Mart somewhere in Ohio because he and his friends were putting Nair in the bottles. I wonder if these two geniuses(sp) are related?

No, the best defense against rape is a patented device I saw an illustration for once. It inserts like a tampon and contains a spring-loaded syringe, loaded with a fast-acting paralytic drug, that pops out when the device is - ahem - activated.

I cringe to think what would happen to the poor woman who tried to ride a bicycle while wearing one, though.

Yes, we'll commence with a scientific study right away to get to the bottom of this. Um... any volunteers for research subjects?

Comment: Regarding your blood-in-chocolate-milk page--a guy I know who grew up
on a dairy farm in Vermont told me that a menstruating cow will produce pink
milk that looks something like the "strawberry milk" you make with Quik (you
know, the Nestle brand red sugar stuff). So he's always grossed out whenever
someone drinks Strawberry Quik because it looks like menstruating-cow milk to
him. Maybe this is related to the source of this story--or maybe my friend was
just telling me a tall tale.

Y'know, maybe I just haven't been paying attention, but I've never known my wife to bleed from her breasts on a monthly basis. And when lactating, she's not likely to be menstruating.

I thought humans were the only species that menstruated, anyway.

Er, no, at least not formally.

But my understanding is that menstruation, at least as humans do it, is rather different from what happens in animals like dogs who only mate when in heat, and not at other times of the cycle. (Humans in contrast mate recreationally as well as procreationally. If not better.)
