Inquiring minds want to know
If prepackaged foods can turn us into flaming gays. Snopes, the website dedicating to destroying urban legends has published a hilarious list of bizarre questions that they've received from readers over the years. As they describe it, "Among the more unusual questions that are sent our way, we sometimes find a few seemingly posed with such a sense of urgency that we can't help but wonder about the circumstances that prompted them Ã¢â‚¬â€ and the results."
"Has anyone had to cut off their tongue because it frozen to a flagpole?"
"DRIED PIDGEON MANURE IF IT MAKES CONTACT WITH YOUR EYE, WILL CAUSE YOU TO GO BLIND?"
"I just read a blurb that pre-packaged foods can cause people to turn gay because of too much estrogen. If I was only allowed one question for snopes, I would ask if this is true. Is it?"
"how much would a penguin egg cost to buy and ship to texas email me as soon as you get the answer to this question bcuz i would like to buy a penguin egg so please email me asap!!!"
"My friend swears that you can't be prosecuted for stealing a dead body because it has no intrinsic value. Is this true?"
"I've heard that it is impossible to take a lightbulb out of your mouth once one puts it in, without either breaking the bulb or dislocating the jaw. Do you know if this is true? I'm counting on you - my husband is really curious, and I don't want to have to drive him to the hospital..."
And there are many more where those came from.
