Eat biscuits, of course! 

Why did The Beatles really want to film a ski scene in Help ?

  

So they could smuggle back to England the crisp, pure Austrian snow, which they were frequently sniffing.

 

What was John's opinion of the "17/beauty queen" rhyme?

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

That it was 'just a throwaway'.

 

John has famously stated that he only likes to of the songs he wrote for the Beatles. Which two are they?

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

In the early weeks of August 1969, George Harrison brought his newly acquired MacBook pro with latest ProTools and a bunch of cool plugins loaded into it. What tracks of their last album ever recorded together, "A bee growl", were recorded using this new stuff?

Depending on how much kaleidoscope your eyes are.

What was Pete Fonda's reaction when he first knew John was using his phrase "i grow what is going to be a beard" in The Beatles's worldwide hit "She sells seashells"?

Her name was Dear (obviously) and she belonged to George Martin, who (also obviously) wrote the song. Paul just liked it so much that he credited it to Lennon-McCartney, which is why John never liked the song. 

What original owner of Friar Park inspired George to write Here Comes The Sun ?

(Sorry, @50yearslate, my computer hates me and deleted the question for some reason).

Sir Frankie Thesun. The day he handed over the keys of Friar Park to George, he became inspired to write a song about the excitement of acquiring his new property! 

Give an example of one of Ringo's tweets from the 60s, complete with emojis.

X = Paul

Y = LSD

(X•Y)Y + (2Y- 6X) = Corky the cat

As a publicity stunt so that they could promote vegetarianism. In their private life, they stayed together.
