Egroeg, that was an allusion to John's claim to have written "70% or better" of "Eleanor Rigby"'s lyrics! Sorry if I was being a bit obscure - I figured everyone would get the reference. (With the winking smiley and all.) And also I felt it was easier to make a joke than to try and tackle an entire song parody as you did! :D

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Oh, I got the reference; I just wanted to see if you would finish the song. I didn't feel like it.  :D

There's a book coming out that is right up this thread's alley:

Beatles inspired cookbook to make debut at NYC metro Fest for Beatles Fans

Lanea Stagg is thrilled to announce that she will be making her first appearance at the NYC Metro Fest for Beatles Fans with her latest cookbook: Recipe Records: A Culinary Tribute to The Beatles.  This is the third book in her Recipe Records cookbook series and contains 50 recipes celebrating 50 years of The Beatles.

Some of the ingeniously titled recipes include: I Should've Known Butter, Strawberry Pie Forever, The White Album Fondue, Let It Brie, Stuffed Sgt. Peppers, Lady Medallions, Ob-La-Di Ob-La Slaw, Roll Up For the Magical Mystery Wrap and George Martinis.

Sorry, it's one thing joking around with Beatles-based puns (and I'd rather this thread was wide enough to take in more than just food-based puns, I hate people that attempt cashing in on fans by sticking their name on something that can barely be said to have a Beatles connection. You know, just what is the difference between the regular, Ob-La-Di Ob-La Slaw, and Nat "King" Cole Slaw? I bet there's barely none. (Except that Nat "King" is probably a much better pun.)

Ob-La-Di Ob-La Slaw is a terrible play on words. you might as well go with Everybodys Got Something To Hide Except Me and My $4.99 Chicken Fried Bargain Bucket.
