Edward Mordrake was a 19th-century English nobleman who had an extra face on the back of his head. According to the story, the extra face could neither eat nor speak, but it could laugh and cry. Edward begged doctors to have his ‘devil twin’ removed, because, supposedly, it whispered horrible things to him at night, but no doctor would attempt it. He committed suicide at the age of 23 by poisoning himself.
Even Colonel Sanders couldn’t tangle with this one. The Thunderbird appears in many Native American legends and is said to be larger than a condor. It was said to feed on killer whales. Sightings of the Thunderbird go back centuries and fossil records have shown that birds with a wing span between 12 and 18 ft existed alongside early man.
In 1959, Mabel Chinnery was visiting the grave of her mother in a British cemetery when she took a picture of her husband, who was waiting alone in the car. It wasn’t until Mrs. Chinnery had the film developed that they realized her husband hadn’t been waiting alone after all. The picture shows a person wearing glasses sitting in the back seat, and Mrs. Chinnery immediately recognized the figure as being her mother — the mother whose grave she had just visited.
Over the past few years, rumors have circulated in Japan about the existence of gigantic humanoid life-forms inhabiting the icy waters of the Antarctic. For the most part, the existence of the Ningen is considered an urban legend. Reportedly observed on multiple occasions by crew members of government-operated whale research ships, these so-called “Ningen” (translates to “humans”) are said to be completely white in color with an estimated length of 20 to 30 meters. Eyewitnesses describe them as having a human-like shape, often with legs, arms, and even five-fingered hands. The only visible facial features are the eyes and mouth.
Urban legend or real life menace? In Loveland, Ohio, a tale of a frog-like man has been circulating since the 1970s. The story seemed to go dormant for years, until some Pokémon Go players supposedly captured new images of the creature in 2016. Local man Sam Jacobs said “Then the thing stood up and walked on its hind legs. I realize this sounds crazy, but I swear on my grandmother’s grave this is the truth. The frog stood about 4 feet tall.”
