Cowboy hats as we think of them today were more popular in Texas, but not elsewhere in the frontier. Bluejeans weren't particularly common, either.

Half of these are as bunk as the stories that make them up. With a little research they could have found the actual true stories (yes someone DiD put razor blades in fruit and got charged with it in southern California).

Cyrus,

Although not on Halloween, there was a widespread occurrence in 2018 in Australia where needles were being put in random fruit. It started with apples, but other fruits were tampered with as well. Several people were hospitalized.

Nobody knows what the hell you're talking about in #12. You could have made that whole thing up and not only would no one know, no one would would bother to look it up because no one cares.

I think most of these are common knowledge at this point, as I've been hearing about them for years. What's less common now are the myths associated with them.

Jos,

Actually it means both "the" and "you".

A sign in Ye Olde Tavern says "Abandon hope, all ye who enter here."

Jos,

Ye does me THe. It's from old English when the letter þ (called a Thorn) was used as TH. When written with an E, þ looked a lot like a Y and over the years the pronunciation has changed to Ye.

Anyway, this list is pure sh#te.

“Cowboy hats were not initially popular in the Western American frontier, with derby or bowler hats being the typical headgear of choice. Heavy marketing of the Stetson “Boss of the Plains” model in the years following the American Civil War was the primary driving force behind the cowboy hat’s popularity.”
