I'm not sure what #10 and #3 are supposed to be. #7 is obvious but I never really considered that to be an urban legend.

I'm not sure about #10 either. #3 I assume is the belief that Elvis and Tupac are still alive somewhere, presumably with Jim Morrison and Andy Kaufman living next door.

3 is that Elvis and Tupac are still alive. I don't get 10 either. It's the woman with the finger in her mouth, in case anyway else gets it. ETA: Not sure who she is, but her thumb looks like a big toe. ETA: Is that Megan Fox? apparently there's a rumor that she had surgery putting her big toe where her thumb was.

Ah, I totally didn't recognize Elvis and Tupac in that picture. Not being a fan of rap I doubt I'd ever have recognized Tupac, and I'm used to seeing pictures of Elvis in his younger days, or in a sequin jumpsuit, so I didn't recognize him there.

I'll admit I didn't actually recognize Tupac, but with Elvis there, it seemed a logical guess, so I Googled and the images that came up were the same guy.
