An urban legend developed in my mind on an uneventful day not long ago. Is it worth posting anywhere here in this forum, or are we only interested in actual, 'non-made-up' ULs?

Welcome to the board.

Unless it spreads by itself and has people swearing that it really happened to their accountant's sister's neighbour, I think it's just a story, not a UL.

Aren't all ULs made up?

That aside, I like Em's qualification for what is a UL and what isn't.

If I manage to post something swipe-worthy that you would like to make your sig, you may do so with my blessing.

Good idea! [Big Grin]
Though, if it becomes famous, how can I prove that I wrote it? [Wink]

Print out this web page and your profile page.

Not sure what good it'll do you though. There's not much to be earned in urban legend royalties.
