does anyone have any suggestions for urban legends? i personally think they should do the mexican pet or the hand in the toilet. for those of you who haven't heard of these, in the mexican pet, a family goes to mexico on vacation and find a small creature they think is a dog. they take it home to their son and a few days later they notice the dog looks sick and it bit their son. they take the creature to the vet and say they think their dog is sick. the vet asked what type of dog it is, and they say a mexican hairless dog. after some tests, the vet comes out and says "we have some bad news. this isn't a mexican hairless, its not even a dog, its a mexican sewer rat, and it has rabies." in the hand in the toilet, a college senior decided to haze the freshmen, so he woke them up in the middle of the night, made them take a freezing cold shower with their clothes on, and then sleep in the basement still soaking wet. to get back at him, the freshmen stole a severed cadavre hand from their biology class and hid it in his toilet. they knew he went to the bathroom at the same time every night. they thought he would see the hand in the toilet and run out screaming, but that night, instead of hearing him scream, they heard a loud thud, and assumed he fainted. when they went in to see how their prank went, they found him laying in the bathtub, his hair had turned totally white, and he was chewing on the severed hand. their prank caused him to literally go mad from fright. also, i heard one myth about a guy who was making a movie about an insane person. to test his acting skills, he went to a mental institution and started acting crazy, saying things like he got telepathic messages from aliens. after the doctors say he is clinically insane, he tells them he's making a movie and wanted to test his acting, and starts to walk out. right after he left the room, he was tackled to the ground and sedated. the doctors thought his explanation about making a movie was either a delusional belief or a lie to avoid being institutionalized, and he was locked up in a hospital room. every day he was their, he angrilly yelled he wasn't crazy, and even tore up the room in a fit of rage. eventually, his friend who was helping him with the movie went to the mental hospital to see how he was doing. when the doctors took the guy's friend to him, he was in a strait jacket. his time in the the institution had caused him to go insane for real.
