How many people ever heard the story that Mikey - the kid from the life
cereal commercial - ate a bunch of PopRocks (That candy that fizzes in
your mouth) and died 'cause his stomach exploded. That one seems to have
gone around the country for a while in my youth.

(i'm not sure that counts as "urban folklore" but is was a weird story
that seems to have gotten a lot of word-of-mouth life)
