Only a Real Weirdo Knows Which of These Urban Legends Are Real

Legends can tell you a lot about a culture: what they value and more importantly, what they fear. But, some of the classic urban legends we all know have to be based in reality, right? We all had that friend growing up who swore that they heard this happened because their cousin’s best friend told them it happened at camp. The creepy killer lurking in the woods, the ghost who gets summoned if you say their name three times in the mirror, pets turning and eating their owners. Yikes! Did any of them really happen?

Only real weirdos keep digging and researching these stories. Others talk themselves down from freaking out so they can actually fall asleep at night. Which one are you? Can you easily separate fact from fiction? Are you comfortable with creepy, spooky facts or are you a strong urban legend denier? Is there a killer with a hook trolling your neighborhood scratching at your window? We don’t know — you tell us! Take this quiz and test your urban legend expertise!


Hi there, reader! Thanks for being here… We’ve been serving up magically silly quizzes to keep you in the know about yourself since 2015, and it’s thanks to friendly folks like yourself that we’re still going strong. It’s been a blast to help millions of you “learn” where you grew up based on your taste in snacks and whether or not you’re an actual perfectionist. And then, of course, we’ve been there for you when you’ve wanted to know who your real soulmate is based on all your exes.

Whether you’re a first-time reader or you’ve been dropping by our site for years, we really appreciate the part you play in making our work here possible. We love what we do because not only do we get to spend our time writing fun quizzes, we also get to put it in front of millions of people and make their day just a little bit more fun.

We love making people happier than they were before they clicked on our site. It may sound like a lofty claim, but don’t worry, we’re realistic about it. We’re not important like food shelves and college scholarships. We just want to make life better at about the level of, say, knock-knock jokes and fried cheese curds. It’s the small joys, ya know?

If you want to be a part of it more than simply taking a quiz, that would be awesome. We’re always looking for contributors. Whether you want to become a regular writer or just send in a one-off submission, we’d love to hear from you. You can email [email protected].

Alright, that’s enough from us. We’re heading back to the internet. If you are, too, here’s another quiz we think you’ll like…
