Game: Fake Urban Legends



  • (Another creative/fun type thread to kill time.)

    MAKE UP YOUR OWN URBAN LEGENDS! THE FUNNIER THE BETTER.
    (Also: please try to keep this relatively clean and relaxed. Try to avoid hardcore politics and snarky. Insults of people in the hobby, genders, races, etc)

    I'll start.

    Traffic cones were designed to look like witch hats to use Pavlovian methods to steer people clear of Wicca.



  • One more:

    If one of your headlights goes out, it's because Jakob Dylan from the Wallflowers snuck into your garage and broke your headlight to keep his song 'One Headlight' relevant.

    He is the Santa Claus of automotive problems.



  • When you hiccup, it's your soul trying to escape.



  • Dabbing is not a recent cultural phenomenon, but an ancient practice meant to hide one's face from misfortune and cast it aside (perhaps towards a nearby enemy).



  • Hahaha love those.

    Fair Warning: I may steal some of these wholesale for game plots some day.

    Jakob Dylan darkling headlight killer sounds amazing.

    "What's that noise?"
    HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
    "Didnt you do a milquetoast Bowie cover?"
    GM: Roll for initiative.



  • The phrase 'deep in the heart of...' does not originate from geographical location, but is from when tribes would sacrifice a willing person and bury their still-beating heart to ensure the longevity and success of their people.



  • "The pieces of skin around Morgan Freeman's eyes are not skin tags. Long ago, Morgan Freeman and Seal got into a fight, and Morgan Freeman grafted the torn skin to his face, which he now wears proudly as a trophy."



  • It's been said that decorative lawn gnomes are actually redcaps employed by Home Owner's Associations. They go forth into the night, measuring the length of your grass by the centimeter and making certain that your hedges are perfectly clipped within regulations. Turn off your doorbell cameras at dusk and avoid their ire by painting your front door the appropriate shade of blue. They seek any opportunity to redden their caps and love to fill the coffers of their masters with estate sale riches.

    Clearly the same HOA as described here: https://www.reddit.com/r/nosleep/comments/bmqi90/my_new_house_has_really_strange_home_owners/



  • @Auspice
    Whoa. That was a neat story! Though obviously fake as soon as the main character signs on that dotted line. You'd need WAY more mentioned features and LOTS of square footage in a home to put up with all that.



  • Benedict Cumberbatch is an alien sent here to observe and learn from our ways.



  • It is not exactly true that Keanu Reeves is the "new" Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris is actually Dr. Who, and we are all in the middle of a special episode where he meets his future, just as awesome self.



  • "At Disney World, at any given time, there is one person in a Mickey, Goofy, Minnie (etc) suit that is equiped with a 9mm pistol. Just in case."


  • Pitcrew

    MUSHes are actually real and, when we connect to a character, it hijacks their soul. When you pose a character doing something, it forces the person in that reality to actually do what you posed, no matter how boneheaded it is.

    EDIT - Added some commas, because it was making my OCD go off.

    @Ominous I am waiting for a thank you for all the great sex, and the bad sex, and also I apologize for all the dead people I once had control of.


  • Pitcrew

    Hamburgers are actually made out of people from Hamburg, Germany.


  • Pitcrew

    You know those cats you hear about at nursing homes and such that always seem to know when someone is going to die and will sleep at that person's side? Actually the person dies from having their soul absorbed by the cat, and the cat just chose them at random.
