Erm... ok!! What!? Surely no one would want that? What next a beatle toenail from 1963? Bellybutton fluff?

I'm going to have my neighbor's nephew's postman's barber sign an affidavit saying Paul gave him a ball of ear wax he retrieved while sitting in the make-up chair on the set of A Hard Day's Night.

I'll give you all a chance to bid on it before I go to Sotheby's.

Do I hear $8,000? Going once...

Okay...that is officially NASSSTY.

Still, the story is pretty cool.  Pulled it out himself?  And decided on the spur of the moment what should be done with it.  I won't be bidding on it, but just saying...

Yeah...but what was wrong with it? Why'd he pull it out, I wonder? Toothache? I never noticed missing teeth in any photos...

Well, the tooth in question looks very rotten indeed. Maybe it's the pot

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8lol..."maybe it's the pot"

But seriously, the whole thing reeks of rat to me. Is there even any proof it's his? And, again, WHY in the NAME OF ALL THAT IS HOLY would anybody want to buy someone's TOOTH?!?!

Because people feel their lives are somehow increased by having an object of someone famous. A tooth? That's a quasi insane thing to buy, personally.

You could put it under your pillow and see if the tooth fairy gives you more money than you paid for it in the first place. Got to spend to accumulate.

10 000 Pounds? Really? Imagine all the other Beatle stuff you could buy with that amount rather than a rotting, decaying tooth.

I'm sorry, but I wouldn't buy it for ten dollars...

Step on the gas and wipe that tear away.

Even if you could clone him (insert evil scientist laugh here), you couldn't recreate him.

Unless of course you cloned Fred and had him abandon John as a child, cloned Julia and had her die prematurely, etc..., etc...

Nope - no good reason to own this tooth.

On the subject of hypotheticals, we could clone him and try raising him without all the traumatic stuff. See what would have happened. Happier person, less amazing music, I think.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8John without the trauma wouldnt have been John, he needed that aggression and persona to be what he became. What would need to be done is develop the clone with the same conditions but with the ability to settle and accept himself later on. Wait he got to that point in the mid-to-late seventies.

To create the same John you would need a time machine to go back to the same timeframe but then there would be another John and two Johns arent allowed to meet as that would complicate the time stream continuum so you would need a guardian to ensure they didnt meet, which would cause confusion. And if we could we would have already have known about it because it would have already happened due to going back in the past even tho we havent yet got to the future when we do go back into the past. Damn its confusing. However i would like to put myself forward for the job.
