All this talk about how she led him on...but what if she WANTED sex and John couldn't perform? And she laughs at him, and he crawls away humiliated?

A few days ago , when looking for some info about their acid party in L.A. , i came across this:

Joan Baez: There weren't enough bedrooms for everybody, so John told me I could stay in his room. So I went to sleep and he came in during the middle of the night, and I think he felt compelled, and he started coming on to me, very unenthusiastically [...] I said, "John, you know, I'm probably as tired as you are, and I don't want you to feel you have to perform on my behalf..."

And he said, "Oh, luvly! I mean, what a relief! Because you see, well, you might say I've already been fooked downstairs...."

So we had a good laugh and went to sleep.

Randomly came across this individual’s analysis of ’Norwegian Wood ’ and it's pretty funny. Please note there are some naughty words that may cause some offence - so if you get easily irked or don't like rude humour, please don't read.

I recently read Murakami's 'Norwegian Wood ', widely considered to be his best novel. It's set in Tokyo in the late 60s, and it features a lot of Beatley music and references, but best of all is the title since this song is the favourite of one of the characters. 

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.
