Ask a Folklorist

I think the American Folklore Society [website][] needs to host a section called *Ask a Folklorist* similar to what MIT has done:

MIT's "Ask and Engineer"

MIT’s “Ask and Engineer”

We could even pre-populate it with the kind of FAQs most of us already get. We could do far worse than to become a ready reference. I love Snopes myself, but it is only focused on fact checking, not on any larger sense of meaning.
