This is a question Urban Legends

I'm ashamed to admit it, but I fell for the "Bob Holness played the saxophone on Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street" story some years back. It just seemed so right. I still want it to be true.

What have you fallen for, or even better, what legends have you started?

Bomber in the lake
A couple of years ago me and a couple of other local scuba divers were asked by a local historical aviation group to survey a lake for them.
Local legend had it that in the 2nd World War a Hudson bomber had crashed in the deepest part of the lake which was said to be about 30 metres.We all turned up one Sunday morning complete with ropes, big torches, marker bouys and full dive kit (dry suits, twin cylinders etc.)
As we walked into the lake the water quickly came up to chest height - and stayed there. After about an hour and a half of splashing round all over the lake the deepest bit we found was just over 2 metres.
