I suppose I should say something after seemingly having derailed the thread. It dates back to at least the mid-90s. I know that because I first heard it in around '96. I found it funny. A "one joke" funny, yes, but funny. A caricature of certain types of youth, just as there are caricatures of stereotypes all over comedy. Sacha Baron Cohen's Ali G and Borat are good examples. There were those who thought those racist, others that thought they offered a mirror to society. It was not the item that got Imus "sacked". Those were comments about a female basketball team in April 2007. I put sacked in quotes for an interesting reason. Most people would consider sacked would mean your employer let you go. CBS, who did the "sacking" insisted his contract be bought out before he could work elsewhere. Within six months he was back on air. One of those leading the charge for him to be fired, the Rev. Jesse Jackson, was appearing on Imus' new show less than a year after the comments he found so offensive.

Anyway, I apologise to – though disagree with – Parlance. I did not mean to offend. To those who didn't find it particularly funny, hey, that's how humour works.

Now, after derailing the laughs thread, can I ask us to get back back on topic? I won't say anything else on this clip other than what I have just said. Somebody find something funny but not controversial!

At the risk of keeping this going, here's what's problematic – when you posted the video, you asked if it was offensive. So you posted it knowing it could/would offend. So I'm not sure what you disagree with.

But since you half-apologized, consider this a half-acceptance. I like thinking of the Beatles board as happy place and want to move on too.

Anyways, now that we're back on track…here's a nice Beatles documentary parody with a twist. From the "Mr. Show, with Bob and David" sketch comedy show, the Monty Python's Flying Circus of the '90s. (The first 40 seconds or so aren't relevant, but were kinda necessary due to the stream-of-consciousness nature of the program.)

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

I love Mr. Show, thank you. "Imminent Death Syndrome" from the pilot is a running joke with my friends. :-D

Great!

Full circle in a sense if you accept the premise that Monty Python were influenced by Magical Mystery Tour.

I can't find the picture on the Internet, but that one of Ringo playing the bongos with a funny face (I have the A Hard Day's Night CD, and the pic is in the liner notes booklet) always makes me laugh. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

I'm sorry if it's hard on the eyes, but it's too good:

It was put together by a fan and given he didn't the amount of choices that George and Giles Martin had with Love, I think it's a remarkable job. Of course, just for those who don't know The Rutles too well, the songs "Fool on the Pill" and "Denny Laine" do not exist. They are just titles that appear on the cover of the US compilation Tragical History Tour, along with such greats as "W.C. Fields Forever" and "I Am The Waitress". "Ouch!" of course does exist, the title track from The Rutles second film (made in colour!).

Just imagine, in a parallel universe, there are people typing on the Pre-Fab Forum of The Rutles Rubicon, saying what a great pastiche of Ron, Dirk, Stig and Barry The Beatles are!

Came across this Onion infographic from October. A couple of the "history" items made me giggle, notably:

Mar. 11, 1967: Paul McCartney’s absentminded humming of the Bonanza theme song shoots straight to the top of the Billboard Hot 100

Aug. 8, 1969: After several dozen attempts, the photographer finally gets a shot of the Beatles crossing Abbey Road without Ringo looking directly into the camera
