"A four of fish and finger pies"

Didn't know what it meant at first, so I went to urbandictionary and found out. Not saying the definition, though! Too graphic!a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

The definition was quite funny. Oh and does anyone know what "four of fish" means?

Fourpenny for fish and chips.

And, yes, I know what the finger pies refer to.

Paul was a very very VERY dirty man in the late 60's. Am I the only one who remembers the LSD incident?

Wow, you didn't know? There's an interview with Paul admitting he had done it, and the others were a little bitter about it because they had "discovered" the drug before him, namely John and George.

Here's the interview:

Go Paulie! I love his honesty- made the interviewer look likequite the ignorant prick.

Hah, oh! I was wondering "how could a Beatles fan not know that?" That clears everything up, sorry about the assumption! a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

What does it mean? I'm too scared to look it up on my computer. A link would help.

"A four of fish" refers to fourpennyworth of fish and chips,
while "finger pie" is sexual slang of the time, apparently referring to
intimate fondlings between teenagers in the shelter, which was a
familiar meeting place. In this way, taken in combination, the lyrics
are a not-so-subtly raunchy reference to "third base"[15]

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!
