URBAN LEGENDS

An urban legend is a story that everyone swears is really true but that nobody seems able to find any proof of actually happening. Common urban legend stories include free (but non-existent) promotional offers from major companies like Microsoft or Hewlett-Packard, horror stories about insect parts or other unsavory items found in meals served by popular fast-food restaurants, or terrifying killings or mutilations occurring in certain parts of the world. Urban legends are not only false and potentially libelous, but highly annoying. If you email someone one of these urban legends, it can be as unwelcome as unsolicited email (spam) from advertisers.
