Boiled Brain is a scary urban legend about a teenage girl who tries to dry her hair in a microwave. Obviously, it doesn’t go as well as she expected.
There was a teenage girl who had a crush on a boy in her class. She kept dropping hints and when he eventually asked her out on a date, she was overjoyed.
On the evening of the big date, she went to the mall and bought some new clothes. Then, she spent over an hour in the bath getting ready. The girl was running seriously late and she still had to dry her hair and get dressed.
To save time, she ran down to the kitchen and jammed a knife in the door of the microwave to keep it open. Then, she stuck her head inside and set the microwave on “High”.
A few minutes later, when her new boyfriend arrived, he rang the doorbell, but there was no answer. He kept knocking on the front door, but the house remained silent. He called out the girl’s name, but there was still no answer.
Frustrated, the boy walked around to the back of the house and peered in the kitchen window. To his horror, he saw the girl lying dead on the kitchen floor.
He called the police and they came to take away her body. At the inquest, when the coroner opened her skull, he found her brains had been reduced to a grey mush. His verdict was that the girl had died due to a boiled brain.
