They thought the albums's leading single I Shot The Wallaby was too offensive because wallabies are native to those areas.

What Beatles song had it's vocal track recorded while sitting in a kangaroo's pouch?

The long lost cover of the song I Am A Kangaroo, famous for being the only song ever written by a kangaroo. John did the vocal inside of a pouch to try and inject more realism into it. 

Why did Mr. K and H host the circus on trampoline to benefit Mr. Kite?

Mr Kite was an egotistical tyrant and thought everything should be done for his benefit. He was also their main attraction.

How did John lampoon Mr Kite's ego?

By ending the song with an organ solo despite the fact that the real Mr. Kite would never use this to end his shows.

How did John meet Yoko?

Planet Of The Apes, Paul decided to go to the theater with Gary, who he was babysitting because Mal and Julie decided to go watch Babarella. While watching the movie, Paul was wishing those damn dirty apes would let George Taylor be.

He plays a Fly On The Wall. That's where he gained his stunning knowledge about the Beatles.

And how did he get that role? Well, he flew in through the bathroom window which happened to be open.

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

John and Stuart Sutcliffe watched an episode of EastEnders  and decided the group should be named The Beales after their favourite character Ian Beale. The guy who made the drum face later on thought they meant to drop the T lower than the other letters.

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da . Even Paul was tiring of the song after 1002 takes.

 

Why was Her Majesty inserted at the end of Abbey Road  instead of it's original place between Mean Mister Mustard and Polythene Pam ?

Because meanmistermustard threatened to sue Apple if they separated him from his sister Pam.

Why didn't the other Beatles let Ringo sing harmonies with them?

His voice would make the rest of them sound terrible by comparison. This is also why he had one song per record only 84.615384615384615384615384615385% of the time.

Who hated the name Richard so much that Ringo had to call himself "Ringo", and why did this person hate the name so much?

All of the Beatles were so fed up with Richard Lester on the set of A Hard Day's Night that they changed Ringo's name so they wouldn't get PTSD from that horrible experience.

How many blue Volks Wagons are in the background of the Abbey Road cover.

20. Some say that the Beatles put them on the cover to allude to the popular PLARWCOTBV (Paul Lost A Race Which Consisted Of Twenty Blue Volkswagen's) Theory, which suggests Paul came last place in a blue Volkswagen race in 1966.

What other clues are there on the album cover which suggest this?

John is seen holding a newspaper whose headline clearly reads "That's All, Volks: Paul McCartney Loses Big Race". In addition, an editorial further down the page claims "McCartney's Wagen Draggin, LOL'".

Why was "Beatles For Sale " released in a special triangular edition?

The flavor is called Savoy Truffle with a Gibson Les Paul and some Pattie on the side.

Why did he call it this?

Because of sentimental reasons: "Savoy Truffle with a Gibson Les Paul and some Pattie on the side" was his mother's maiden name. 

What are the lyrics to "Flying "?

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.
