I heard that there's a place in Cardiff that'll cut off your genitalia or shove a red-hot poker through them if you pay them...

Weird...

I'd have thought that they'd do that if you didn't pay them...

There's the one about the air force guy who supposedly strapped a jet engine to his car, and went for a drive, then a flight, then a collision with a cliff. That was proved false though.

There was the one about the American air force using frozen chickens to test the windsheilds of their planes. The British called them up and asked why their sheilds kept breaking when they tried it, and the Americans said "Defrost the chickens."

There are tons out there...
Most of the ones I know aren't legends, just unfacts, or really did happen (Thank you "Weird NJ" magazine)

Like how they say if you pee on a subway rail (or electric fence) you'll get electrocuted. I've actually learned several more things like that from watching Mythbusters. (Site is here)

Does it exist in the UK?

Oh, oh! One of my favourite urban myths is from NJ, where I used to live with Mike, Becca, pgrmdave, and ange (EDIT: And artist.unknown- sorry!). It tells of a woman who had twelve children, and said that if she were to have another child, it would be cursed. (Various versions involve curses, Satan, and awkward potions). Anyway, she had a thirteenth child. It was born with satan-style horns and tail, and claws, oh my. So now (this legend was created in the 19th century, I think) the "Jersey Devil" roams around the NJ Pine Barrens (not so much a nice place) and makes awful noises and scares people. THE END. (Last sighting I think was in the 90s.)

Uhh... Yeah... Hence my quoting of the show, from my UK-based home tongue.gif

I think everyone's heard about the various rats/cockaroaches/fingers/hooks in KFC chicken. I have to ask... why does all the blame fall on KFC. Yeah, I know about the Wendy's finger, but I'm asking about the stupid urban legends. Maybe it's just a good scapegoat restaurant. smile.gif

Oh god, that's sick... in what kind of blood? I have a morbid sense of curiosity.
If you're a reasonably courteous driver, you don't like it when people flick you off. The urban legend I heard is that some twit in traffic flicked off a Mafia crime lord. Understandably, said crime lord was somewhat pissed off. So he told his evil henchmen (hit men if you want to be all serious), "Bring me that finger."
So the evil henchmen tracked the guy to his house and retrieved the finger. Basically, they hacked it off with a blunt instrument and then left to take it back to their boss. The guy called 911 afterwards, so he managed not to bleed to death. He never flicked anyone off ever again.
The End.
I have no idea if this actually happened, but somehow you just wish it would happen to people who flick you off in traffic for something you didn't do. biggrin.gif

How about the one where I guy meets girl in a bar and they go back to her house. When he wakes up the next morning she is gone and written on the wall in blood is :WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF AIDS!  blink.gif 

that one always scared the patootie outta me  unsure.gif

I heard one where some people put syringes in cinema seats so when you sat down it injected into you (and somehow you didn't feel it) and when you got up there was a note by it saying, 'Welcome to the world of AIDS'

That would be creepy and it's a good story, but the theater would get sued very quickly. There would be loads of bad publicity, so this one is likely to remain merely a legend. Good story for freaking friends out, though! biggrin.gif
