» Hello » Diversions » Sightings

This forum is for the reporting of "sightings" of urban legends. A "sighting" is the use or mention of an urban legend in a citable work of popular culture, such as a book, a film, a television program or commercial, or a regular commentary or monologue by a nationally known figure (e.g., Paul Harvey, Jay Leno).

In general, a "sighting" is the kind of information we would list as a bibliographical citation in the "Sources" or "Sightings" section of one of our pages. "My teacher told us about 'Bloody Mary' yesterday" or "This morning Bob & Fred on WBOG in Cowlick, Oklahama repeated the 'Hare Dryer' legend" are not examples of sightings, because hardly anyone knows who your teacher or Bob & Fred are.

This forum does not allow replies. Discussions of sightings should be carried out in the forums most appropriate to the subject matter.
