T. B. Bechtel, a City Councilor from Newcastle , Australia, was asked on a local live radio talk show just what he thought about the allegations of torture of suspected terrorists.Apparently, this has been shooting around the net for several days now. Being the curious sort, I did a little research, and discovered that the story of T. B. Bechtel may just be an urban legend, as I could find no record of a T. B. Bechtel serving in any capacity anywhere in Australia.
His reply prompted his ejection from the studio, but to thunderous applause from the audience.
If hooking up one raghead terrorist prisoner’s testicles to a car battery to get the truth out of the lying little camelshagger will save just one Australian life, then I have only three things to say:
Red is positive, Black is negative, and make sure his nuts are wet.
As I was eyeballing a couple of my email accounts, I came across a couple that had stories pasted within that were nearly identical to the one posted above. What caught my eye was that in most of them, T. B. Bechtel had magically morphed into a city councilman in Midland, Texas, and another had him located somewhere in Canada.
At the end of the day, it really doesn't matter whether T. B. Bechtel exists or not, nor whether he actually said what he is being credited with in a radio interview.
You see, all urban legends tend to have a ring of truth to them, else they wouldn't have much of a shelf life, and this one is no different.
Seriously, how many times have you found out that something you believed turned out to be a concocted story, yet there was still something deep down inside you that wished it had really happened?
That is how I felt when I discovered the truth about T. B. Bechtel.
