America's premier folk detective is back on the case, sniffing out those zany but dubious stories that qreally happenedq to a friend of your sister's boyfriend's accountant's mechanic. Jan Harold Brunvanda€”''Mr. Urban Legendq [Smithsonian]a€”tracks the most fabulous tales making today's cocktail-party circuit and shows why those stories that sound too good to be true probably are too good to be true. The eponymous episodea€”qThe Baby Trainqa€”sheds light on certain predawn activities that have linked unusually high birth rates to the whim of train schedule makers. Other stories offer a revealing peek behind the story of qThe Exploding Bra, q expose the embarrassing source of qThe Hairdresser's Error, q resurrect a qFailed Suicideq Buster Keaton would have died for, and show why adults are better off not bringing their comic book fantasies out of the closet. From qSuperhero Hijinxq to qThe Shocking Videotapeq to qThe Accidental Cannibal, q The Baby Train uncovers the mysteries behind some of the bawdiest, goriest, funniest, most pyrotechnic urban legends yet.Jan Harold Brunvand. a€œThe Stolen Exama€ Professor identifies thief by modifying exams not sto1en.a€”Curses ... a€œThe Second Blue Booka€ Various strategies to cheat on essay exams by using two blue books.-MP, 196-98. a€œDo You Know Who Ianbsp;...
