Comment: in response to your rumour about the girl with the hot dog it
reminds me of a story my ex girlfriend told. aparently this girl who was a
good close friend of my ex confided in her after this embarrassing ordeal.
she had been using a [peeled] banana in much the same way as the hotdog
which of course broke off inside her. she admitted herself to hospital to
have it removed.

i have no idea if this is really true though!

I don't know why my mind is going this way, but all I'm thinking of is, "Was the banana frozen? Cause if it wasn't, I don't see it working as a pleasuring device for more than a second. Then again, if it's frozen, how did she unpeel it?"

I should really start taking my meds again. Damn Medicare.

Wouldn't "unpeel" mean putting the peel back on? I think that's pretty tough to do with any banana, frozen or otherwise.

To unpeel is to remove the peel--sort of like to "deplane" is to get off a plane. It's not as common an expression, but I've heard it before.

Sorry for the interruption, the comments above made me think of this and I just wanted to share.

Over the weekend my uncle was in town and we were talking about the subjects that we excelled in school.
He said "Spelling was my favorite subject... yeah, I could spell real good." Apparently English was not his strong point [lol]

My brother is an EMT/Firefighter and he came home one morning and asked me if I knew a girl, W. I said yes, we have gym class together (I was in 7th grade at the time) and when I asked how he knew her he said he made a paramedic run to her house the night before for a hot dog being stuck, ahem, in her. She missed the next week of school and of course, blabbermouth me told EVERYBODY and we all called her "Hot Dog" in the locker room. It was like the scene in "Carrie" when everybody is throwing feminine products at Carrie. Thankfully my situation had a MUCH better outcome than the movie. I hated her anyway before that and this just added fuel to my fire. Of course I guess my brother could have gotten into a LOT of trouble for telling me but he's as much of a blabber mouth as me.

Comment: With regards to your article on spiders laying eggs in woman's
cheeks and then the baby spiders hatching, you call this folklore and
impossible. I am a man and this happened to me 100% without any doubt,
although it was in my leg not my cheek.

When I was about 14 years old I awoke one day to notice a boil on my
thigh. As the days went on it became bigger and bigger and began to throb.
On about the fourth day I awoke and looked down at my thigh and the skin
cracked open like an earthquake and out slithered hundreds of tiny
transparent baby spiders. I still have the scar to prove it!!

When you say this is impossible, I am here to tell you unequivically that
this happened to me. This is not a story I would make up and I have been
telling it consistently for over 20 years. So I would be careful when you
announce that things are impossible as this is certainly not. I didn't
travel to any exotic place either, this happened to me in my home town of
Toronto, Canada.

Comment: Hi, I just wanted to say that the rumor about jelly bracelets is
100% true. My friend has 2 black ones, my other friend has a yellow and I
think a red, and my friend who has two black ones has other friends with
every color. It's totally sick! I mean, #1 way to get a guy to use you.
I think it's great to warn parents about it, because it's totally sick.
One of my friend's friends is FOURTEEN and pregnant, and this is one way
around ending up in that sort of situation. I promise I'm not lying.

Comment: The one in the college section about the girl and the hot dog
rings very familiar. When I was in seventh grade they had to take a girl
to the doctor because the hot dog she had taken from the lunch room to
pleasure herself had gotten stuck in the vagina. So part of this really
did happen to a girl in Morrilton, Ar by the name of XXXXXX.

Comment: Hi, Although I request my name and my college not be mentioned,
it is no urban legend about finding sperm in a cheek cell scraping when
viewing under the microscope. January of 1998, I was working with a male
student learning how to use the microscope. Indeed, there was a sperm
(not moving) in his cheek cell scrapings.

I almost said "COOL, how did that happen?" but luckily I did not say
anything but gently moved the slide so no one could view the finding.

It is no urban legend. Also, it was not a female's cheek cell scraping,
it was from a male.

Please do not use my name or my college's name. A midwestern community
college will describe it enough. You may contact me for verification but
I do not want my name used.

Comment: The human glass of orange juice is true my friends brother zack
was at the ward with him. Heres how the real story goes the guy had like a
sheet of acid on him so he put it in his sock because in arizona they cant
check your sock cause it is considered strip searching. But the dude
forgot to put it in aluminum foil so he started to sweat and now the acid
is in him so he thinks he is a glass of orange juice and if you touch him
he thinks your going to spill him. The reason why he is orange juice is
because acid users drink orange juice to up theyre high because of the
calcium in it

Being a loyal Listener to the moring show I can say unequivicvally that they arent experts on these things and will generally read whatever people pass on to them (as long as it isnt very vulgar). They have passed on several well known UL's as true (most of em passed on by Terri Trean)

Means nothing. Its a radio show fer crying out loud.

Removing socks may or may not be considered strip searching, but I'm almost postive that whereever he is (a hospital, I think) isn't above strip- searching.

I have a hard time believing that you'd sweat much on the soles of your feet.

I mean, my feet have gotten plently sweaty and stinky, but enought to absorb blotter paper? I dunno.

I definitly buy into the mind- body connection (i even have several books on the subject) but I just don't think this is true; even if he thinks he's a glass of OJ, and if you push him, he'll die, I don't see how his body would actually shut down.

Also, trips just don't last that long. 12 hours or so, at the absolute longest.

quote:

I don't know enough biology/ chemistry to say for sure, but I suspect there's no way calcium would be able to interact w/ LSD and extend the high.

I apologize for commenting so heavily on this comment, but this urban legand really irrates me for some reason. I hate blantly false anti- drug warnings like this.
