These stories are all true! They happened to my brother's
wife cousin's next door neighbor's babysitter's ex-boyfriend
Hey, did you you hear the one about the lady who had her
beehive hairdo sprayed so hard that spiders to nest in it?
Of course you did, it happened to your next door neighbor's
cousin. Or was it your cousin's next door neighbor?
Folktales are not the exclusive domain of the past. They
are alive and kicking in urban legends, those stories that
are told as true but always as happening to a friend of a
friend. We hear them in conversation and recognize them on
In The Hairdo you'll read about stupid
criminals, scams and conspiracy theories, students clever
enough to outsmart the professor though not smart enough to
pass the test, and jerks who get their just desserts. These
are the funniest, scariest, downright weirdest tales going
Collected and retold by David Holt and Bill Mooney and based
on their Grammy nominated audio tape. Fifty five stories that
will make your hair stand on end...possibly into the shape
of a beehive hairdo.
