Why are John and Yoko kissing on the Double Fantasy and Milk And Honey album covers?

Because a picture of Paul and Linda kissing on those albums would have been silly.

When John crashed his car in Scotland on July 1, 1969, was he wearing clean underwear? Was anyone?

Not an issue - whenever in Scotland, John dressed "true Scotsman" style.

 

How did the Beatles prevent the outbreak of World War III?

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

The high-frequency note at the end of A Day In The Life has a hypnotising function so that everyone who is listening to it turns into a peaceful h....- Wait , that means we all got Brainwasheda-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Why has Paul grown himself a full beard to the times of the Rooftop concert?

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I'd be more concerned with the number of a-holes in there.

How would George's music be different if the script of Help called for the Beatles to eat in a Polish restaurant?

Deinitely maybe. One can only hope that they do release it after it has been heavily edited by Giles Martin who either cut out the middle of the track and/or copied the second fifth of the track and tagged it onto the end in an effort to make it longer. I say this quite selfishly as I love a good @meanmistermustard rant. paul-mccartney

The Beatles ended up playing in Hamburg after Allan Williams had a fortuitously coincidental meeting in a London nightclub. What was the real purpose of his visit?

No, because The Beatles owe copyright to Alexandre Dumas over that one. 

 

Who are The Beatles sending their letters to in P.S. I Love You?

Because he was caught speeding 67mph in a 55mph zone. 

 

Did Ringo enjoy playing Only A Northern Song more than Tomorrow Never Knows ?

At first he did but then he surrendered to the void and his sympathy changed.

Why is it the lonely hearts club band although all four of them were in a relationship?

Their hearts weren't in it.

 

Why was the version of 12-Bar Original included on Anthology 2 severely edited down? Why did they remove about four minutes from the song's running time?

*puts on meanmistermustard hat*

Because the four extra minutes contained footage that Apple thought would sully the Beatles' image. the folk at Apple are all worthless fools who think that if they try hard enough to pretend that bootlegs aren't a fact of life, no one would ever know that it was edited down, and we gullible fans would be lulled into complacency by what meagre outtakes there were on the Anthologies and never ask for anything more again... until Apple came out with the limited-edition 37th anniversary deluxe edition Please Please Me reissue which came with a licensed? Beatles footstool for an additional £250, which we would all snap up as absolutely essential to our collections.

*removes hat*

When was the last time Ringo listened to Sgt Pepper ?
