Urban legends have been a part of our culture for centuries, passed down from generation to generation through storytelling. These tales often involve strange or supernatural events and are often used to warn people about potential dangers or to explain unexplained phenomena. However, not all urban legends are scary or serious – in fact, some of the funniest urban legends are ones that you’ve probably never heard of.
Here are some of the funniest urban legends you’ve never heard of:
The Licked Hand: This legend involves a woman who hears strange noises in her house while she is home alone. She eventually discovers that her dog has been licking her hand to comfort her, but when she goes to check on the dog, she finds that it has been murdered. The legend warns people to be careful of strange noises in their homes.
The Vanishing Hitchhiker: This classic urban legend involves a hitchhiker who disappears from a car after being picked up by a driver. The twist in this version of the legend is that the hitchhiker is a ghost who disappears when the driver turns around to look at them.
The Kidney Heist: This legend involves a traveller who wakes up in a bathtub filled with ice and discovers that one of their kidneys has been stolen. The legend warns people to be careful of strangers and to avoid travelling alone.
The Killer in the Backseat: This legend involves a woman who is driving home alone at night and realizes that a man is hiding in the backseat of her car. She manages to escape, and when she looks back, she sees that the man is a murderer who has been hiding in the backseat of her car.
The Choking Doberman: This legend involves a woman who calls the vet because her Doberman is choking on something. When the vet arrives, he discovers that the dog has swallowed a burglar’s finger. The legend warns people to be careful of burglars and to keep their dogs well-fed.
While these urban legends may not be true, they are certainly entertaining and serve as a reminder of the power of storytelling. So the next time you hear a strange tale, take a moment to appreciate the humour and creativity of the storyteller and enjoy the ride.
