Thanks for the nice kind thoughts @AppleScruffJunior. Any Peanuts merchandise would be gratefully received, alas there is no official Calvin and Hobbes tat as Watterson refused to sanction any and told all interested parties to get stuffed.

You whippersnapers might be too young to remember this but back in my day (i.e. 4-5 years ago) Ringo used to be the joke of many Beatles' memes (sorry Ringo).

This one was always my personal favourite:

Some others

I saw this today and I thought of @meanmistermustard . Anytime I see anything related to Peanuts or Calvin and Hobbes, I think 'mmm would love that!'.

Fun fact: There was a point in time when I was unsure if I would be going on a big Liverpool trip with some of the lovely members here on this forum. I was in Germany at the time when permission was ultimately not given to me but if it had been given I was going to buy presents for all the gang. This would have been mmm's:

I was going to get the matching plate set as well, might as well fill up your cupboards with as much tat as possible mmm!   

Those memes are my all Beatles jokes, except with George instead of Ringo. a-hard-days-night-george-9

@PurplishRain, you wrote in the What If Beatles game "What if Sam Kinison had sang vocals on Sgt. Pepper instead of Paul?"

Just a friendly grammar lesson. The verb form used in this case should be "sung." http://grammarist.com/usage/sa.....g-vs-sung/

I didn't realize until now that your @ name is different from your display name. I added your name to the html editor @ mention names directory

If I see one I'll hang on to it. But if you want to ensure you get one you can order them from here (I think it's about £15 shipped to the US, more if you want a fancy finish or packaging).

Thanks, @Joe! I ordered one. I also discovered another place I would like to visit in Wales near Cardiff - The Royal Mint.

I have been to the US Mint and to the US Bureau of Engraving and printing where US paper currency is made.

Still, if anyone comes across an extra one, save it for me, please.

Hello Beatlebug, it  is hea-hard-days-night-john-6and his BFF Iggy Pop- same as previous photo.

You probably know they shared a flat in Berlin. BTW, love the Low album you posted and  Always Crashing In The Same Car is my favourite track.

 Beatlebug, I was heading out the door this morning and no time to try linking these, but if you're interested, some more info and interesting photos of Bowie's three visits to Russia over the years, first one 1973.

Donald Trump at the Gridiron Dinner (whatever that is) in Washington last Saturday:

I won't rule out direct talks with Kim Jong Un, I just won't. As far as the risk of dealing with a madman is concerned, that's his problem, not mine.

Seems Kim has met the challenge and decided to take the risk of dealing with a madman... a-hard-days-night-george-10
