So is there any resolution to who inspired Lennon to chage man to van in I Am The Walrus?

Apparently Wikipedia says it was Pet Shotten - however as early as 1968 Hunter Davies said that he was the inspiration. Any other sources out there?

You're not wrong, wikipedia is wrong. You relied on what they said.

 I have. It was alright, but I picked up on quite a few inaccuracies.

Oh, also, JoB saw it with her whole family in the cinema. The scene in the park would have been REALLY awkward.
