Yummy, yummy, yummy I've got love in my tummy...
There are lots of urban legends. Especially about rock stars. I first heard this one when it was circulating about Marc Almond and he's still trying to live it down. There are lots more urban legends here though. I especially like the rumour that the Peter, Paul & Mary tune "Puff, the Magic Dragon" is a coded song about marijuana. Not true, but who cares, don't let facts get in the way of a good rumour.
Here are some more myths (mainly false):-
Neil Armstrong:
"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind" and "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky!"
Mariah Carey:
"When I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry. I mean, I'd love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff."
Larry Ellison:
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison delivered an unusual commencement address to the Yale class of 2000.
Michael Faraday:
Scientist Michael Faraday told the prime minister the usefulness of his invention was that 'someday you can tax it.'
Lauryn Hill:
"I would rather die than have a white person buy one of my albums."
Monica Lewinsky:
"I've learned not to put things in my mouth that are bad for me."
Elvis Presley:
"The only thing a nigger can do for me is buy my records and shine my shoes."
"Stick with driving a truck, because you're never going to make it as a singer."
Elvis Presley's backup singers walked out on a concert after his racist remark that their breath "smelled like catfish."
