I was talking to my dad about a play I have to write for school about seventy's singers and I talk am saying I want to include George in it and my dad is all like "There are thousands of Georges." and he is talking about how the Beatles would have been better with Two Johns and two Pauls and I am just laughing at the thought of an army of Georges and ego battles with two Pauls and two Johns.

I was in Galway yesterday and while running through the city (it was raining) I saw a lad with an Anthology suitcase, I was wearing my Beatles hoody and was going to say "cool suitcase" but decided against it

This lady came into my store today to buy some paint.  After I had mixed it I went to the colour fan to check the colour and I was like "Hey cool, the name of this colour is Penny Lane."  The lady was like "Really?!"  She then explained to me that her name is Penny, and that her parents named her that (it was going to be Lane..  I think they made the right choice) because they are big Beatles fans!  I was like "Penny, you just have to love this colour!"

OT Grammar Nazi:  Shouldn't it be "the proper use of quotations"?  quote being the verb, quotation being the noun (gerund). (don't all give me a damn good whacking at once!)

Zag and I had two Beatley Moments this past Saturday while taking advantage of a beautiful sunny day in Intercourse (it's a small town in Pennsylvania). We were in a leather shop in Intercourse (just not getting any better is it?) when I saw a display of leather caps similar to the one John wore from time to time. Just as I was thinking about John, the shop's PA system started playing 'Twist And Shout'.

Later that day, still in Intercourse (what staying power!), I was recalling the earlier Beatley Moment and was thinking about listening to the Please Please Me album when I got back home. All of a sudden, the PA system for shop we were in belted out "one, two, three, faw!!!" which of course was the count in for 'I Saw Her Standing There'.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Intercourse is a funny (strange funny) name for a town...

In class the other day, a student asked what the drummer in the Beatles was called, and someone piped up 'Rongo'. After half-laughing (and saying '', um, I think you mean Ringo' ), I thought of this

and him being called Bongo a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

Pennsylvania has more than just Intercourse. We have towns named:

Blue Ball

Virginville

Climax

Bath Addition

Beaver

Big Beaver

New Beaver

Desire

Experiment

and, to make sure this is still a Beatley topic, we also have a town named...drum roll please...Ono.yoko-ono_01

What strange names, and the ones RN posted are just really rude. Who decided these things, and why not choose something normal?

Ahem stay-on-topic

I quite like Ono for a town name :)

Sorry @Zig , that was actually aimed at me as much as anyone else. I'm terrible at staying on-topic apple01

What's that old saying in the Catholic church?

We confess our sins, we wash them clean...

...

Ah forget it, y'all are on your own. Not enough confessions to cleanse all of you. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I think this is actually one of the threads where stay-on-topicdoesn't apply. It'll all Get Back on track once someone posts a new Beatley Moment. Same as Milestone Posts.

I thought the way to forgiveness was to pay a donation to some guy on the TV - you also get a guaranteed spot in Heaven, 3 clouds down from the head cloud, and a nice plaque to hand on your wall.
