The one about onions absorbing the swine flu virus from the air. What made it worse was that in the version that had actually been forwarded to me, the wording had been changed so that the onion was identified as having cleared up the swine flu "bacteria", making it even more egregiously wrong.

I can understand someone passing along an urban legend without stopping to double-check it -- but to look it up, have it debunked, and then pass it along anyway?! Have people lost their minds!?
