Wow same! What a wonderful coincidence! a-hard-days-night-george-9

Though it is getting quite fishy when you think about the fact that my brother’s 24……a-hard-days-night-john-3a-hard-days-night-paul-11

@Joe,

Was reading the forum sub-heading “Not quite as popular as Jesus” and was wondering if you have ever had any complaints or comments at the inclusion of ‘Jesus’? Obviously it’s a jokey reference to John’s “more popular than Jesus” comment but it got me wondering.

Thanks.

mmm in Scotland.

I think it’s fine.  It fits with the Beatles Bible name.

  

It happens occasionally. Those who object tend to be very adamant in their feedback, typically using phrases beginning “You should” or “You shouldn’t”. I don’t engage.

One of the earliest was something like “YOU SHOULDN’T CALL IT THE BEATLES BIBLE BECAUSE DON’T YOU KNOW THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE BIBLE THE WORD OF GOD. CHANGE IT IMMEDIATELY.” I paraphrase but only slightly.

“Not quite as popular as Jesus” is obviously based on John’s notorious quotation, but I’d imagine a good proportion of people nowadays aren’t aware of it, especially newer fans who don’t pore over Beatles books like I used to.

My friend Matt wants to start a Beatles Bible podcast – “More podular than Jesus”. I’ve no plans to move into podcasting but I’ll keep it in my back pocket just in case.

I could be wrong, but I think the word “bible” at its core means a collection of works, hence the Bible is a collection of the different books therein.  So the Beatles Bible would be an accurate title.  Also, the subtitle shouldn’t be offensive like John’s quote was because it says the exact opposite of what he said claiming to NOT be more popular than Jesus.

Probably has been asked before, but has anybody ever made a post that’s took up a whole page?

No, @SgtPeppersBulldog, because it’s impossible. There have been plenty of posts that would fill more than a page in an Office/Open Office document, but the Forum is preformatted for twenty posts to appear on each page irrespective of the length of those posts.

Do mentions have a time limit before they expire? I left some mentions unclosed and noticed they vanished.

@lovelyritametermaid I’ve extended it by 3 chapters just for you. There are 61 chapters in total so I could go on for some time.

It’s a riveting read, Bebu. I mean the word ‘Bennet’ has been said 51 times in those 7 chapters alone- very impressive.
