Wizard of Oz characters

Dorothy: John - The first member of the group, who picked up and accepted the others one by one.
Scarecrow: Paul- The member of the group who was closest to Dorothy.
Tin Man: George - The one who most diligently sought something to fill his heart (for George, it ended up being spirituality).
Lion: Ringo - The last to join - King of the beasts (or in this case, drummers!) who is the most loyal and protective of the others in the end.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

I don't know if John had a speed limit, but the "merge" for Ringo is spot on! Nice list, AG.

I was thinking of the one most people break when I was thinking about John and speed limits.

Right! I saw some images of signs online that showed the infinity symbol for the speed limit, but the first 3 I tried were not in a format that could be posted here - then I got bored.
It seems my speed limit is 3.a-hard-days-night-john-7

the moon

John: waxing moon, always growing, seeking, learning new things
Paul: full moon, always putting on his best and shiny face no matter the situation
George: new moon, dark, quiet, and mysterious
Ringo: waning moon, he is the oldest of the Beatles and he sits at his drum kit behind the Beatles

John: Expressionism (likes to show his emotions)

Paul: Pointillism (very meticulous in the end product of his songs)

George: Surrealism (very spiritual and detached)

Ringo: Pop Art (just take a look at his own art work: http://www.ringostarrart.com/)

Just sped up a 45 (so happy to have a record player again!! brian-epsteina-hard-days-night-john-6a-hard-days-night-ringo-10ahdn_ringo_09) and of course thought of Alvin and the Chipmunks! After realizing Ringo would be the cooler version of Theodore, I came here.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

This sort of fits here.

I Feel Wine: which of the new Beatles wine range are you?

Which Beatles wine are you? Take your pick from these tipples...

John Lennon (Dry White) - Citrussy, peachy and soft, refreshing and easy-going, with mouth-wateringly juicy fruit flavours ripened in the south Australian sun

Paul McCartney (Red) - Australian Shiraz at its friendliest - warming, aromatic, baked black fruit and spice lead the way, with light tannins, black pepper and soft red berry fruits in the background

George Harrison (Rosé) - Full of fresh summer fruits, this is a fantastic sunny southern French rosé. Strawberry, redcurrant and ripe berry flavours

Ringo Starr (Med White) - Clean, fresh and fruity medium-dry white with just a hint of sweetness, giving delicious, juicy tropical fruit notes

Kinda funny that Zig just started the alcoholic beverages round in the Baker's Dozen thread.

I'd probably try George first.

Basil - John. Sometimes manic, wonderfully caustic.
Sybil - Paul. Holds things together. Tougher than she looks
Polly - George. Happy to try and please everybody.
Manuel - Ringo. A bit daft
