Urban Legend Night

Tonight, 10 teens came out for Urban Legend Night to celebrate Teen Read Week. Random fact of the night: it is possible for an inner layer of a jawbreaker to melt and cause it to burst and burn you! Don't leave your jawbreaker in the sun or put it in the microwave!! See what you could have learned if you had come to UL Night???

If you're sorry you missed it...

Look for some books:
  • The 500 Best Urban Legends Ever! by Yorick Brown
  • Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid: The Book of Scary Urban Legends collected by Jan Harold Brunvand
  • Encyclopedia of Urban Legends by Jan Harold Brunvand
  • The Chicken-Fried Rat: Tales Too Gross to Be True by Cylin Busby
  • The Big Book of Urban Legends (graphic novel) by Robert Loren Fleming
  • The Exploding Toilet: Modern Urban Legends by David Holt
  • Hollywood Urban Legends by Richard Roeper
  • Mysterious Urban Myths by John Townsend
Visit some websites:

Anyway, we wrote our own urban legends, which I posted below. Caitlin and Jeff won TRW backpacks for having the most convincing urban legend. We did an urban legend quiz, on which Marissa only missed two answers. She won a backpack, too. Also, Maria posted a bizarre quote below which is actually from an urban legend mad-lib that we did. Now we all know lots of useless trivia, but I bet none of us will ever believe email forwards again!!!
