AverageAmericanGuy: Deathfrogg: AverageAmericanGuy: Fun Fact: William Tell was actually an English criminal who was responsible for the deaths of 22 people. His modus operandi was to drug his victims, then tie them to a tree. He'd cut their testicles off then shoot them through with an arrow, pinning them to the tree.The apple legend came after his death when several women came forward claiming Tell was the father to their children.Uh, William Tell was Swiss. The story originated in Switzerland.

But the Swiss story has more holes in it than... well... something with a lot of holes.
