He couldn't find any feathers. This was the first and last time a Beatle had ever been tarred and leafed.

What treasured instrument was stolen from Paul while on tour?

George Martin wasn't a real person. The 4 beatles produced their own records so they adopted that pseudonym.

How did John win the war?

All the ones he played on edited by Pete himself into one huge medley. He once accidentally put a Ringo track on it and went ballistic.

Why did Yoko steal one of George's biscuits during the Abbey Road sessions?

That was meant to be a SERIOUS answer, and therefore not really worthy! I wanted to italicize or spoilerize it to emphasize its special nature but couldn't figure out how to on the phone 🙁  (Phone also nonsensically changed  "digestives" to "digestive system", I only now notice... blue-meanie)

Carry on! So, why did  Yoko steal one of George's biscuits during the Abbey Road sessions?

My Sweet Lord . Paul sued George for plagarism, but George won the case because just like everybody else, he had never heard it. 

What does "The Watusi" look like?
