What was Yoko's reaction after George ate one of her famous biscuit-shaped poems?

  Taken aback, that's what. She was often at a loss for words around George, her favorite. But this time she knew exactly what she wanted to say. And yet...she immediately swallowed the sarcastic remark, instead finding herself offering tea. "Can't have a biscuit without tea..." she said, presenting her "T pot" for George to see. The T pot: A regular clay teapot painted almost completely white save a black letter T, the minor artwork had taken her the better part of yesterday afternoon; she had hoped to get 45 pounds for it so she could surprise John with a new wahwah pedal for a gift. (The item would, in fact, remain unsold until 1983, when it fetched thousands at auction.)

   George looked up, surprised, a few biscuit poem crumbs falling on his jeans; he swept at them absently onto the floor, discarded syllables. Seeing the look in her eye, part earnest, part anxious, he fumbled around, coming up with an empty tea cup from his guitar case. "Yeah, wouldn't mind a top up. Thanks. Thanks Yok'." Wordlessly, Yoko upended the pot into the proffered cup, and George watched in confusion,  then exasperation, then eventually grudging amusement, and, finally, utter fascination as hundreds of Scrabble "T" tiles filled the cup and spilled onto the floor. Before his eyes, new words were forming where the tiles met the fractured-poem crumbs. CLATL. ZUYTT. STTRUM!

"Can't have a biscuit without T. It's very sad, like a man without a woman." Yoko left the room without looking back, leaving George to pick up the tiles, or leave them, or shove them up his bum. She hoped George didn't hear her giggle to herself as she left.

George watched her exit, hearing her oddly strangled sounding cough before vanishing to the control room. He would remember that little cough hours later as he sat down in his easy chair, guitar in hand, singing and writing and strumming. "I won't forget you my little Apple Struffs," STRUM STRUM STRUM "There's so much they don't know 'bout Apple Struffs." Strum.

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

Because it was a medley of said songs, recorded for the Beatles' 1984 comeback album, Beatles for Synths.

Ringo. He loves California. It's his scene.

Did the girl finally please him in the song Please Please Me ? If so, how did she please him?

That story isn't appropriate for children.

Trick question. It was part of a plan devised by Pete Best, who pretended to be the other three Beatles and sent Ringo a letter saying he should go to Sardinia and never return.

How did Pete get away with pretending to be the other three, and more importantly, how did Ringo find out and seek his revenge?

Pete stole Ringo's trousers from his closet and wore them, this was enough to convince Paul that this was Ringo. Also, Ringo didn't have to do a thing to get revenge on him, after they heard him drumming on Back In The USSR , they fired him, making him storm out of the room. After 2 weeks, Ringo's SOS telegraph finally came back in the mail. You see, Pete Best loaded Ringo and Peter Seller's yacht with lots of speakers that were loudly blasting Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffet, the song being so overplayed that Maureen lost her hearing for 7 years after the vacation, 3 year old Zak went into a big hissy fit, and Ringo got 3rd degree burns in his ears, making his hearing so bad that yelling sounds like whispers, this is also why he says I've got blisters in my ears at the end of Helter Skelter .

Why is Mal Evans allergic to the song Margaritaville?

He is not allergic, he just hate it to death. He doesn't like margaritas at all.

I happened to know that he catered the lunch for Aunt Jessie's dream.

Maybe you can help me with a problem.  I'm always making people look to the right during my mystery tours because my views to the left are not very inspiring.  What can I put on the left side to improve that view?
