Did Erich 'Mancow' Muller fake his own waterboarding? Glub, glub
Word is out on the Web that Chicago radio talker Erich "Mancow" Muller may have totally faked his waterboarding.
According to Gawker, the whole thing -- all six seconds of it -- was a stunt.
"We went into this thinking it was going to be a joke," Muller said very quickly when Gawker called him. "But it was not a joke -- it was horrible. 'Hoax' is probably not the right word, but we did think it was going to be a joke."
The day before the waterboarding was to take place, Muller was frantically looking for someone to perform it. They found a Marine named Klay South, who said he agreed to the gig to get publicity and a donation for the veterans nonprofit he founded.
Gawker talked to the Slouth, and he told the website he had NO idea what he was doing.
"I know nothing about waterboarding. I had never done it before, I have no formal training in it, and I've never had it done to me. The only thing I knew was what I saw on the Internet. I went to waterboarding.org and looked it up. I just did what I was told -- poured the water on his face and that was it. I'm probably the last person they should have had do it. I didn't know what I was doing."
Should Mancow -- who called his treatment "torture" -- get a proper waterboarding? Your thoughts?
