Yoko, although she backed out after she was told George took the digestives with him when he left. This caused Yoko to track down George and the biscuits, and go on a Benny Hill type chase after him.

How did the chase end?

Yoko chased George around the grounds of Friar Park for fifteen minutes, neither giving up any ground. A terrified George, biscuits in hand, scrambled up a tree where he knew Yoko would refuse to follow for fear of soiling her solid white hot-pants outfit. Satisfied, George clambered out onto a branch and had just decided to reward himself with a hard-earned biscuit when the branch broke and he tumbled onto the ground. He lay cowering and cringing as Yoko loomed over him. Then, she slowly reached out, gently tapped George on his shoulder, and said in a soft voice: 

"Tag. You're it!"

She then quickly grabbed a biscuit from the box and took off merrily. Bewildered, George brushed himself off, took the remaining biscuits back to the house, picked up his acoustic guitar and wrote "I'd Have You Anytime ". 

What was the name of the rock group that John, Paul, George and Ringo formed in the 1960s?

Yoko usually gets the blame for this, but I blame Magic Alex for inventing the brain-powered smartphone for John to play with while he was on drugs.

George had a special name for each one of his guitar strings. What are they?

After watching the Bonzo Dog Band perform on MMT, George became very fond of the G string.

Linda. She was born Lyndon but changed her sex to better relate to her absolute favouritest Beatles song: "She's A Woman ". (Accordingly, she additionally didn't give Paul no presents. And was no peasant.)

 

How did America react when John Lennon proclaimed "We've got longer hair than Jesus now" ?

After the "more popular than Jesus" fiasco, the American public realized that John was now simply trying to get them to re-purchase, re-burn and subsequently re-re-purchase more Beatles merchandise. This ploy did work on some folk, however, boosting record sales. Wisely, the "We have nicer cars than Jesus" strategy was shelved and never came to fruition.

Why were The Beatles vilified in the Philippines?

It was because of the "more popular than Imelda Marcos" fiasco.

What became of the "more popular than Ernest Borgnine" fiasco?

Nothing became of it. It's still raging at full force, despite half of the Beatles and Ernest Borgnine being dead.
