a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Yes.

50yearslate asked this incredibly popular question
What was George's preferred way of venting/letting his anger out?  

which The Hole Got Fixed answered first
By writing a song.

and then, only seconds later, TheWalrusWasBrian answered
Watching Ringo dance. 

and finally, Beatlebug came up with
Writing snarky songs. (Not Guilty , Sue Me Sue You Blues, This Song, etc.)

Then the like-minded trio proceeded to ask the following questions -- The Hole Got Fixed asked
Why did Paul write Here Comes The Sun ? Who inspired him?

whilst TheWalrusWasBrian inquired indiscreetly
What was Paul's preferred way of venting/letting his anger out?

and finally, Beatlebug wondered
What was George Martin's preferred way of venting his anger?

Paul wrote Here Comes The Sun about John and Ringo, who both had sons. However, he misspelled "son" and the grammatically lenient EMI Nazis (for anyone but John that is) didn't bother to correct it. George had nothing to do with the song.

Paul's preferred way of venting was to watch John dance. IMG_3544.GIFImage Enlarger

George Martin's preferred way of venting was to film Ringo and John dancing and using the film as a bargaining chip.

Who was the most important person in history?

That Ringo's nose is fake. His real nose is smaller and prettier.

That Paul is not dead he is just asleep.

That his favourite Beatles song is 'I am the walnuts'

That George Martin is actually Henry the Horse.

What was the sequel to "Yellow submarine" ?

The plot of “Their Third” is that Ringo had lost all three of them. They found their first two, but they are still looking for their third.

John Lennon has been said to have awakened to the feminist cause due to the efforts of Yoko Ono. Why is this in fact a false claim? Furthermore, why is anyone who defends Yoko automatically a sexist? And thirdly, is it true that Yoko Ono is in fact not even a person at all, but a lizard wearing a skin suit, screaming messages back home in an alien language?

I feel like Von Bontee should answer that, but since vonbontee asked it...

The Beatles' third film, Eight Armaments We Sold You, was about the epic battle that ensured when Ringo discovered that the ring which had caused all his worries in Help ! was actually the One Ring to Rule Them All, and tried to get it back. The other three Beatles, recognising that Ringo was not in his right mind due to the ring's hold on him, went after him, but because they snuck out the back way they hadn't any funds for their travels, and were forced to become arms-dealers to all the various warring tribes, clans, and races who also wanted the ring. Hilarity ensued when all the opposing armies realised that they had all bought their guns from the same group of irreverent Liverpool lads. There was also the infamous Curious Subplot featuring biscuits and 'tea' a-hard-days-night-george-4 with some members of what would eventually become Mony Python.

What were some of the highlights of this film's soundtrack?

John Paul Jones, British naval officer, strings arranger, keyboardist, and session bassist, who played on all of the Beatles' studio recordings from the time Paul died to the time William Shears Campbell finally learnt to play bass properly. Widely considered the True Fifth Beatle by bassplaying Beatles fans. Here seen demonstrating his photo-bombing technique in a picture taken of the lead guitarist of the band he joined after WSC took over bass duties and Jones was free to go. A little group called Heavy Metal Dirigible, or something like that...?

Which Beatle invented Arthur? Explain your answer.

Martha. She only spoke once in her life and the only word she said was 'Arthur!' . Paul was playing piano one fine morning and Martha was laying beside him as usually. All of a sudden Martha farted ahdn_paul_02... Paul asked her: "What was that??!!"... to what Martha answered: "Arthur!"

What happened with Anna? Did she finally go with him?

Anna double-crossed everyone and set off by herself without returning the ring, after which she was set upon by a bloodthirsty Eastern religious cult as well as a pair of bumbling scientists, all of whom wanted the ring for their own sinister purpose. Hilarity ensued.

Why did "Penny Lane "/"Strawberry Fields Forever " not reach #1 on the pop charts?
