    Just for fun, anyone know any urban myths? The one that springs to my (rather dirty) mind concerns the kids tv show 'Captain Pugwash'. The legend goes that the characters had some rather naughty names - Master Bates and Seaman Stains being two (if you don't get it just say the names out loud!)

    Anyone else know any?

    The Snopes website is great for urban myths: snopes.com: Urban Legends Reference Pages

    And I always refer to it when I get those emails warning about terrible things which might happen and asking you to pass it on to all your friends. If it is nonsense (and it usually is) then Snopes will know about it!

    I did part of my thesis on urban myths. One that springs to mind is the little old lady hitch hiker with hairy hands who turns out to be a mad axe murderer!

    Oh and I thought it was Roger the ship's cat in Captain Pugwash :D

    As well as [email protected], the dog!

    Pugwash was also rumoured to be an Australian slangword for (*censored*) lol

    All urban myths, but amazing how many people quote them as fact lol

    As mentioned snopes.com is a fantastic website for all those is it isn't it true stories.
