I was just listening to your story about "The Melonheads". There is very similar to a tale that I heard when I was in high school. The story was that there were some people living in the woods near the Concord Covered bridge who were referred to as "The Waterheads" (because for whatever reason they had huge heads). Supposedly if you went to the bridge alone at night and put a candybar on the passenger seat of your car, stopped in the middle of the bridge with headlights off and the passenger window down, and then honked your horn three times, the candybar would be gone when you drove off.
