Better question is "Why'd you find that out?"

Fan fiction

There has to be a dozen versions of this video, but this is the one I started posting in:

So I've edited the post, starting the video at 7:00.  At about 7:55 in the video, George says something I can't quite make out and so I posted the question and got the following replies:

"Not quite hearing what George says @ 07:59 ... sounds like "get outta there.""

"George actually says, "Get out of that one then", it's the Liverpudlian accent that makes it difficult to 'translate' into English :-)"

"George was referring to a regular joke that Eric Morecambe (the guy in the glasses) used to do where he would put the back of his hand under the chin of someone he was talking to and say "go on get out of that I bet you can't" (as if it were a wrestling hold)  By putting his hand more down on the chest was Georges little twist on it."

On Joe's comment, I don't think so. 

On Anna's, you don't have to do that. All you have to do is copy your address bar.

EDIT: Yep, pasting in the same line as the text works.

Its not news and the source of the original article is behind a paywall but from the BBC's 10 Things We Didn't Know Last Week

2The line often attributed to John Lennon - "Ringo isn't the best drummer in the world. He isn't even the best drummer in the Beatles" - was actually uttered by British comedian Jasper Carrott in 1983.

A little search found this from The Beatles Community

A quote from Mark Lewisohn

“The London Times newspaper quoted John Lennon ‘famously saying that Ringo wasn’t even the best drummer in the Beatles.’ John Lennon never said that, famously or otherwise, and that is the London Times quoting him,” Lewisohn said, making a point about his motivation for trying to separate fact from Fab Four mythology.

“For me, it’s [a case of tracking down] when did he say this? I’ve heard every John Lennon interview, I’ve read every John Lennon interview, I never saw that quote. So when did he say it, let alone when did he famously say it?” he said. “I determined to get to the bottom of it. And it’s actually a TV comedian’s joke from three years after John was killed, in 1983. So John Lennon never said it -- and wouldn’t have said it.”

I'm not quite sure where to put this, but anyway, in my English class, we're reading Romeo and Juliet.  And as we complete an act, we watch the corresponding portion of Zeffirelli's film adaption.  Today, I looked up the movie to find out what year it was made (I figured it was during the '60's, but I wasn't sure which year exactly) and I found out that Zeffirelli originally wanted to have
Paul McCartney play the part of Romeo.

If he had gotten McCartney, he couldn't have used Olivia Hussey for Juliet, since in 1968, Macca would have been 26 and Olivia was just 16...

The scene when Olivia's breast get briefly shown while getting out of bed... you'd never seen so many young, horny males in high school English class have this mixture of "How do I react to that?" and "Holy s***, they showed it!" Tremendous moment.

In my class it was all about Romeo's exposed posterior a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

I know!  The faces of my classmates were priceless during that scene.  The girls reacted similarly to Whiting's bare buttocks, followed by shock on both sexes' faces when Hussey's breasts were shown.  I could even hear a few whispers like, "Did...did they just show that?!"
