John - published by penguin
Paul - likes penguins
George - posed with a penguin
Ringo - would probably like to narrate a penguin documentary if anyone asked nicely, why don't they huh huh give Ringo a go you anti-penguin bastards.

In conclusion:

@ewe2, I beg to differ: George really ought to be (in my humble opinion) 'chants Hare Krishna with an elementary penguin'. a-hard-days-night-john-1

And @Wigwam, your video-spoiler now looks the same as everyone else's. Must have been a fortuitous anomaly, or me just seeing things. 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

On 7 March 2015, I said
Ghostbusters

a-hard-days-night-john-7Peter Venkman - The ultimate New York hero: cynical, sarcastic, secretly sweet-natured.*

a-hard-days-night-paul-4Winston Zeddemore - Acts as an 'everyman' and voice of reason for the team.*

ahdn_george_01Egon Spengler - The most serious member. A sugar junkie.*

a-hard-days-night-ringo-2Ray Stantz - Characterized by his almost childlike enthusiasm towards his work. The heart of the Ghostbusters.*

*Descriptions taken from Wiki.

Look like the only ones you and I agreed on @ewe2 was George/Egon.

Your "Allen Klein as Walter Peck" is an excellent touch!

Aha dang I thought I was being original (I rewatched the movie tonight and got inspired!). I love those names, they're so silly. I picked Ringo as Winston since he was the last to join the team!

Makes perfect sense. That's the beauty of this thread - no right or wrong.

Still laughing about Klein/Peck.

Looks like it, yeah. I had:

 

Paul - spring

Ringo - summer

John - autumn

George - winter

 

To me, those are the seasons that match them best, and they also happen to be the seasons in which they each have their birthdays. But hey, opinions differ heart

Looks like it, yeah. I had:

 

Paul - spring (can be either warm or cool, makes people happy, but can be quite a drag too)

Ringo - summer (pleasant, happy-go-lucky, makes people relax, and earns most people's love)

John - autumn (ever changing, keeps surprising people, and can be very pleasant even though people assume the worst)

George - winter (cool, sometimes even cold, but once the sun comes out, the whole world lights up)

 

To me, those are the seasons that match them best, and they also happen to be the seasons in which they each have their birthdays. But hey, opinions differ heart
