Myths and Legends
by Jason Weiser, Carissa Weiser, Nextpod
2w ago
A story from 1001 Nights about how to get rid of that annoying babysitter and what to do if your husbands keep getting killed (the answer is, apparently, to keep getting married). The creature is the sea monk, neither a monk nor a sea creature, but a horrifying Cthulhu mash-up.

Two stories about finding people who like you for you. Not because you wear a rice bowl on your head. Or because you spend way too much time looking in the mirror. It's the stories of the Black Rice Bowl and the Mirror from Kyoto, from Japanese folklore. The creatures are real life magpies, chaos birds.

The story of a storyteller who can't think of a story to tell, and how a stranger solves that problem by getting him fired and taking him on wacky adventures with too many beheadings. The creature is the Lou Carcolh. Brace yourself, snail links are coming. Snails: I don't know if this is a good price for snails: https://myths.link/snails No idea why I find this video of a snail eating a cucumber so unnerving, but here you go: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ifjpgt26osY Here's one eating a strawberry.

We're back in the stories of the Monkey King on the Journey to the West and we'll see that not everyone who is mean to you is a demon. They might be a murderous bandit! Also, try to make friends that can tell the difference between you and your evil doppelgänger. The creature is the Kongamato, a (maybe?) actual dinosaur. It is truly terrible and annoying and bad, but only slightly murdery! --- Sponsor: Hello Fresh: HelloFresh is farm-fresh, pre-portioned ingredients and seasonal recipes delivered right to your doorstep.
