From Robert Rodriguez's book
Revolver (which I recommend):

Klaus brought the finished art over to George Martin's office at EMI in Manchester Square. Without ceremony, he set it up atop a file cabinet for the unveiling before Martin, Epstein, the four Beatles, and a secretary. There was momentary silence as they took it all in, a heavy void that only served to stir Klaus's nervousness with every passing second. It was finally broken by Paul. "Hey! That's me sitting on a toilet!" Everyone gathered closer to peer at what he'd spotted. He was right; there he was, in a photo taken in Hamburg. George Martin tsk-tsked and said, "Well, we can't have that." "No, it's great," Paul protested. (Suffice to say, the offending image was removed.)

Possibly it was this one (though he's fully clothed, so it's minimally offensive):

I don't see why this should be offensive or inappropriate!!! On the White Album there is a picture with Paul naked behind a pillar, they still left that on the back cover!

I may be the only Beatles fan on earth who doesn't know, and I'm loathe to reveal my ignorance.  But this has irked me for decades!  

Thanks.

I have trouble with that one, too... I'm pretty sure it's John, though. 

 

This was posted in the other Revolver thread about cover art:

So I'm not the only one who has a hard time drawing George! I feel so much better now. a-hard-days-night-paul-8

Did I mention this is my favourite album cover EVER? I could write an essay on it. heart heart heart heart heart I've stared at it till I was blue in the face and I still discover new things every day... kind of like the Beatles' music. 

If I go insane, please don't put your wires in my brain.
