Ringo coerced Brian into taking out an insurance policy on his nose. Then he got John to punch his nose, and Brian had to collect insurance money for Ringo's bloody nose. a-hard-days-night-george-4

What was the Band On The Run from?

The band were on the run from Mrs. Helen Wheels Vandebilt and her pet bluebird Mamunia, who were close friends of Jailer Man and Sailor Sam. They had no words, and none of them thought they'd be left alive in 1985, but escaped her clutches after finding a Jet . As they rolled it, one of them then famously said "Drink to me, drink to my health, you know I can't drink anymore!"

Where did their Jet take them?

Someone squeezed the egg a little too hard after thinking it was just another plastic egg from that Easter egg hunt over at the Beatles Bible House, and it exploded in yolk all over that poor person. 

(Based on actual events involving yours truly)

 

So our beautiful Beatles were sent Back To The Egg , back to the beginning. After the egg was broken, how did they get back?

I don't believe in nihilism

I just believe in Beatles

And Yoko and me

And that's how it'll be

The dream ain't over

What can I say?

The dream ain't over

One day we'll play

I'm still the dream weaver

Ringo and George'll be on board

I'm still the walrus

And I'll talk to Paul

And so dear friends

It wont be long till we carry on

The dream ain't over.

33 and a third degrees left of Greenland. 

Strawberry Fields Forever originally faded back in a second time. What were we supposed to hear this time?

We should believe it because it's John himself who is telling us, but we should disregard it because it is Strawberry Fields and, you know, nothing is real.

What was Paul's reaction when he was told that he was dead?

He was curious because lots of people kept coming into his shop asking for the "My Bonnie " record. He then saw a poster for one of their lunchtime performances at The Cavern so went along to see what the fuss was about.

 

What number Ardwick Road did the McCartney family live at?

Not sure if you are aware @Hippymama, in this thread we ask easy and/or spurious questions and provide absolutely rubbish answers for them. john-lennon-salute_gif So while your answer is correct, there is no correct answer. a-hard-days-night-george-4

As long as it took until Vera, Chuck and Dave bailed Maggie out of prison - it was about 4 weeks.

How many biscuits does it take to change the lightbulb?

Depends on which of the Beatles you ask and whether Yoko is present or not. If you asked George, he would've said one dozen without Yoko, three dozen with.

Why does Yoko's presence complicate the efforts of the biscuits so? yoko-ono_01

Yoko would eat the biscuits and then use the lightbulb as an exhibit in one of her upcoming art exhibitions. 

Who received the Beatles' letter from P.S. I Love You? What did they write back?

The Beatles themselves. They sent it to their future selves and they wrote back "From me(us) to you".

Who received this letter and what was his/her/its reaction?

The letter went back slightly too far in time and reached The Marvelettes, who were subsequently inspired to record "Please Mr. Postman". It's all a rich tapestry.

"Tomorrow Never Knows "...what, exactly?
