Has any one person or group of people ever been linked to a well known Urban Legend?
My friend and I were talking the other day about if we wanted to create a harmless urban legend how would we go about doing it? What are the chances it would become widely known?
I can only think of one where the source is known and that is because it was spread over a radio station…it was a report saying that Lil Bow Wow was raped in the back of his limo by one of his bodyguards. It wasn’t true.
Other than that I don’t know of any that have been traced back to their source or sources.
If you were a student in my school you would know about a lot of mini urban legends that never make it off the campus and usually die after all the students have graduated, you know “turnover”. The one I am thinking of now is that all the beans, mashed potatoes, etc given to Freshmen is mixed with spit from the Juniors and Seniors and that the principal condones it. Obviously that legend isn’t true and will never get off campus and if it does then you’ll see me on the news.
