Is Piggies about actual pigs? What is the meaning of I Am The Walrus ? I can answer those!

Piggies is not about actual pigs, and is about corporate greed and capitalism. I Am The Walrus was meant to confuse people, but the inner meaning has many different references including The Walrus and The Carpenter poem, previous Beatles songs, and many more! 

I can also answer your questions! Post them in the replies and i'll quote them and answer!

Or use this website to get immediate answers.

I've read it, and it's great!  

And don't forget to vote blue jay way (and rocky raccoon) higher up on the 2021 Beatles song poll. If you don't wanna vote it, that's fine.

Bit egotistic! Lots of people ask questions, lots of people have answers. I see no need or purpose for a thread aimed at one person answering questions about the Beatles unless it's in "Pimp Your Stuff".

Having been voted the most knowledgeable on Beatles history every year since I joined, I have never seen the need to set up an "Ask Nasty" thread, or been arrogant enough to.

There's plenty of places to ask questions, and anyone can contribute answers, including you. This is a totally unnecessary thread.

Many people think John and Paul, but I think George did. Though it's never been confirmed, I'm quite sure it was George.

Well, I guess we're up for a challenge! Ron Vs. Rookie Magill: Who is more knowledgeable?

Modern day words, @Magill, is that you keep creating threads there are no need for, or already exist but you haven't looked for or asked about, and this is another one.

EDIT: No contest, no challenge. This forum is for discussion of the Beatles, and not bragging rights for how clever anyone thinks they are. If you want to show your Beatles knowledge, show it in threads that already exist, and answer questions where and when they're asked.

We don't need a special thread for you to answer questions, no more than we need an "Ask Nasty" thread.

Hi. 
 
We’ve locked this thread as whilst it would serve a purpose there is already the Miscellaneous Beatles Questions thread. Furthermore, there are the individual song threads which can be used to hopefully spark further conversations and discussions. Doing it this way may also encourage others to get involved and contribute as that can lead to additional insights not otherwise thought of instead of one person answering.
 
Hopefully that all makes sense.
