JUST the face!

I don't know if any of you have ever been to snopes.com, but it's this actually really valuable website that answers reader mail about potential urban legends by researching whether or not it could possibly be true. Really, it's an awesome site to kill a few hours at any time of the week, but they recently just added a page of completely absurd but very urgent-sounding emails they've received over the last little while. Needless to say, it totally reaffirms any suspicions you may have had that people are, in fact, incredibly stupid. Here's my favourite actual question posed to snopes:

They say that if a person has a pet cat and dies, if the person's body is not found fairly soon after death, the cat, having not been fed, will become ravenously hungry and eat the dead person's face off — JUST the face!

Is this true? My cat often looks me in the face. I used to think he was just being friendly. Now I know he's just sizing me up, like a chef at a butcher shop, waiting for "the big day". Since hearing this rumor, every time my cat licks his chops it gives me the willies!

Read the rest of them here. And feel free to repost your favourites.

Holy fuck; I hate to comment on my own post but I just found the total runner-up to the cat question on that thread:


Is it true? IS IT TRUE??? Well, how sad are you when you wear pearls, I guess?

Remember the old gemstone "if your hand is bigger than your face, you have cancer," which is always followed by a punch in the new hand-face?

I like the powdered-glass-in-the-cocaine question, because it sounds like a short story that Mark Twain would have written about a slick-witted lad protecting his cocaine.

Also, I just heard "on CNN" that fellatio wards off breastcancer.
