Here is a recent new story about this. It is actually fact. And it is all down to a chap called Carl Diem. Basically In the modern Olypmics no Torch Relay was ran until the 1936 Beriln Games, which of course Hitler wanted to be the biggest games evvvaar.
I heard a funny story. Some time in the 1960s, The Beatles were recording one of their albums. Paul McCartney comes in, saying he's wrote a new song. The only problem is that Lenon's been up all night, doing coke and getting absolutely pissed. In a drunken rage, he claims that McCartney's lyrics are uninspired and proceeds to murder his fellow bandmate. After Ringo Starr uses his connections in the Liverpudlian Mafia to get the body disposed of, the band audition thousands of replacements, eventually settling on a 34 year old bricklayer called Frank Mitchell. After extensive singing lessons and plastic surgery, he becomes the 'new' Paul McCartney on the one condition that he ruins his reputation by composing generic soft-rock and marrying a variety of left-wing kooks and gold diggers.
There's already a well-served conspiracy theory topic in D&D. I'd post the link, but I don't want that subforum full of V pillocks who are incapable of understanding even the simplest of rules and regulations.
