They didn't have anything white to wear. Also, they didn't think they could sit through twenty minutes of Eric and Pattie chanting each other's name. 

However, they each sent a gift. What did they contribute?

Martha was Arthur, George's mop top. Paul was very fond of it, but didn't want everyone to know, so he changed it's name for the song.

ahdn_george_01a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Paul: "I LUV IT!!!"

George: "Stop touching my hair."

I empathise with Paul on a spiritual level heart 

What did Paul do when George got rid of Arthur?

In response to Zig's query, johnandyoko collectively sent twenty-five acorns each. They were to be combined as a symbol of the marriage. 

What year was Rubber Soul released?

Why was Rubber Soul released so much earlier than their other albums?

Because they split up due to a spat over another member's wife. They then got together again after 3 centuries.

 

Whose wife, and why?

John's second wife's insistence that The Beatles write and sing songs about the great Edo fire. The Beatles were sympathetic, for sure, but they didn't want to bring the party down when they did concerts. Thus was the beginning of the 3 century hiatus.

"Yoko. Breaking up The Beatles for 3 hundred years."

Name one person Paul McCartney collaborated with during those 3 hundred years. What is the most famous song to come from that collaboration?

The Right Honourable Sir Dennis Laine Esq. who with McCartney in 1771, formed the Anglo - (colony to be) American group Large Feathers Used For Moving Through The Air. Their first album was called Mammals And Other Species That Inhabit Forests, which songs had a particular influence on rock artist Charles Darwin.

Why was Large Feathers Used For Moving Through The Air's music unheard for 200 years?

They were eclipsed by John and Yoko's collaboration with Punk Floyd, Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict. 

 

Which Beatles belonged to a wandering group of semi-associated knight-errants, and what were they called?

Winston Churchill. He showed up to the Get Back sessions because he 'got back' from the grave.

Because they both had been hanging out with John Lemon for too long! (Corny pun jokes are my profession)

How many Chuck Berry songs have The Beatles covered?

They have, they just use the name Tofu Wings because John, George, and Ringo all want Paul to sing every single song which Paul agreed to on the condition that the group be renamed to Tofu Wings and they add Billy Preston as a permanent pianist.

Why did they use the name Tofu Wings instead of just Wings.

The Beatles wanted to unexpectedly and unusually update their saying from "To the toppermost of the poppermost!" to "To F*cking Hell!", but had to shorten it for censoring reasons. They randomly decided to put the word 'Wings' in there to make up for it.

Plus, Ringo wanted to show off his new dress.

Why did Jane Asher and Paul split in 1968?
