Looking for a song that is probably not about beef trucks.

I’m looking for a song I heard a few years ago. It was some kind of techno song, and I remember a spoken line that sounded awfully like "My name is Benny the killer fuck beef truck." I have a feeling those aren’t the actual lyrics.

I heard the song a few years ago, hanging out at my friends' house. From what I remember, it was a pretty standard techno-sounding song, with a male voice speaking the misheard line in question. I also heard, at some point, "My name is Moody the electro beef truck." This cracked me up and I remember spending a lot of time giggling about the beef trucks. (We were fairly stoned at the time.) These may have been the only two lines in the song. They were fairly rhythmic lines and didn't sound like they’d been sampled from an old movie or anything.

We can't figure out what song it was. A few days later, my friends looked through all of the techno mixes on their computer and couldn't find it, and haven't been able to find it since. ("Seriously, it's long gone," they swear.) I've Googled anything that might be reasonably close to the real lyrics (funk? beat? track? ...meat truck?) with no success. The real words might be nothing like what I misheard. Maybe we just hallucinated the whole thing.

I know that's not much information to go on, and it's probably a long shot, but I've been wondering about the true identity of this song for years. Hopefully someone recognizes it. Thanks in advance!

Interesting... that song is really close conceptually, but I don't recall any singing in the song I heard, and I remember the tempo being a lot faster. I don't think that's it, but maybe we had a remix? I'll run it by my friends and see if it rings a bell.

"My Red Hot Car" by Squarepusher?
