There’s no success like – uh – success – so, since everybody liked Conspiracies in the Suez Canal so much, here are a few more.
1 — Andy Kaufman (Latka Gravas on the TV series Taxi) did not fake his own death as a comedic hoax in 1984. He was killed by the TCB mafia when he inadvertently discovered that Elvis was still alive. (They were worried the avant-garde comedian was too unstable to keep the secret.)
2 — Thunderstorms, tornados, hurricanes and other violent climate change events are all weather simulations created by the government. They’re being used to cover up the sights and sounds of the battles we’re having with alien space invaders that have been going on — just outside our atmosphere — since the 1980s. The basic premise is that the public doesn’t seem to be too worried about climate change, but it’s a pretty safe bet that alien invaders would scare the shit out of them.
3 — And speaking of space: the United States did not land on the Moon in 1969. They landed on Mars. However, NASA thought that no one would believe them, so they just said it was the Moon. That’s why the early films and photos are black and white – to disguise the distinct reddish Martian tinge. And, of course, all the current Mars Rover missions are being used to hide the original evidence.
4 – And staying with America, JFK was killed by a secret group of conspiracy theorists called “The Grassy Knoll Group” (GKG) who used the event to make millions, selling conspiracy theory books and making ridiculous documentaries for the History Channel. Since the 60s, to keep the Conspiracy Industry alive, this group has killed several movie stars and musicians, at least two politicians and a princess. However, I cannot reveal their names or the GKG will kill me, too.
And I’ve saved the best for last:
5 — The urban myth that Walt Disney had his body cryogenically frozen when he died is obviously false. However, it is part of a far more elaborate cover-up. In 1938, Mickey Mouse, Disney’s symbol and biggest box office star, was accidently drowned during the filming of “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” segment of Fantasia. Rather than risk a public outcry, possible criminal charges and financial ruin, Disney Corp. covered up the death and finished the film with Mickey’s stand-in. (If you look closely, some scenes show Mickey with pupils in his eyes — and some don’t.) Meanwhile, the real Mickey was cryogenically frozen using secret Nazi technology (both Hitler and Mussolini were big fans) in the hope that German scientists would eventually be able to resurrect the little rodent. Along came World War II, and, clearly, Disney did not want to be associated with Nazis, so Mickey was quietly hidden away in the Disney vaults. For the next two decades, Disney used a clever combination of make-up, lighting and body doubles to keep Mickey in the public eye. (Again, a careful examination reveals subtle changes in Mickey’s appearance over the years.) Then, in the 1960s, when scientists began to study cryogenics again, Disney Corp were worried that researchers might accidently stumble on their unsavory secret. So, in 1966, when Walt Disney himself died of natural causes, Disney executives concocted the urban myth that Walt had been cryogenically frozen — to divert attention from the real story. And it totally worked! Even today, if you google “Disney” and “cryogenics,” there’s no mention of Mickey Mouse. To the uninformed, this may sound like an outlandish theory, but I’ll leave you with this question. Mickey Mouse is one of the most recognized figures of all time; he generates more money every year than many small countries. Yet, since Fantasia, Disney has never used the Billion Dollar Mouse in a full-length feature film. Coincidence? I think not!
