As we mention elsewhere, the very same anecdote can be either a joke or a legend, depending upon whether or not it’s related as a true story. However, simply slapping a “THIS IS TRUE” tag on an obvious piece of humor does not magically transform it into a legend. Nonetheless, people do it, and the result is that we get all sorts of jokes forwarded to us with “Is this true?” inquiries attached. To paraphrase Freud, sometimes a joke is just a joke; not every bit of humor requires deep analysis. So, if you see something familiar listed here, rest assured it’s merely something intended to provoke a chuckle or two, not a description of a real-life incident.
