Help me track and debunk urban legends, rumors, and Internet hoaxes!
I welcome any and all contributions of texts and/or images whose authenticity is in question, even if you're not sure they qualify as folklore.
That includes forwarded emails, message board postings, Facebook notes, shared photos, tweets, word-of-mouth rumors, urban legends, old wives' tales, dubious factoids, and any other questionable material that crosses your transom. Contributed items will be researched and the results posted on this site as time allows.
Or, if you simply have a question or comment, please feel free to write!
