She was originally called Shirley, before Paul changed her name.

Who is Rita/Shirley’s alter ego?

Love one another.

The correct answer to that question would be the figure (Mother Superior) from "Happiness Is A Warm Gun ".

What is the song "Paperback Writer " written about?

The Beatles actually wrote a number of theme songs for the James Bond films during their career. Unfortunately none of them were considered suitable: Dr Nowhere Man , From Russia With Love From Me To You , Thunderball Together Now, Her Majesty 's Secret Service, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds are Forever, Live and Let it Be, I Wanna Be Your Man With The Golden Gun, Love of The Spy Who Loved Me, Mr Moonlightraker, For Your Eyes Only A Northern Song , Octopussy's Garden, The Inner Daylights, GoldenEye Slumbers, The Word is Not Enough, Die Another Girl , and Sure To Skyfall (In Love With You).

In addition to these, they recorded a few incidental themes, most notably Tanner (Go To Him), A Taste Of Honey Ryder, Leave My Kissy Alone, Mailman, Bring Me No Moore Blues, Ob-La-Di, Ob-la-Dalton, For You Q , Double Oh! Darling , and Moneypenny (That's Who I Want).

Both John and Paul would go on to release Bond-themed songs during their solo careers, Give Pierce a Chance and Let M In.

@Tony Japanese I must say that you are quite the imaginative writer, kudos to you for achieving something only perhaps (if you are one) a Bond fan could do.

I'm not a huge fan of James Bond, I just like puns. Thank you though.

Anyway, to answer your actual question and get this thread back on track.

The Beatles were signed to and recorded for the EMI's Humourphone label.

On what Beatles song does Paul McCartney first play acoustic guitar, or more specifically a goose-stick guitar?

Blackbird . The black bird in question being, of course, a goose.

Which Beatle was the first in space, and when? What songs were written about this experience?

On July 16, 1969, Paul McCartney "came in through the bathroom window" of the Eagle and stowed himself away so he could join Buzz, Neil and Michael on their moon mission, intent on planting non-terrestrial cannabis. The grey desolation Paul experienced on that dusty surface inspired that song's allegorical first verse; additionally, "Hi Hi Hi " arose out of an improvised jam between Paul and the other astronauts, and that single's B-side "C Moon" was a sly pun. 

What other Beatles songs besides "Good Morning" featured the chicken?

Every song since Paul was replaced by Faul. This is referenced in the song "Glass Onion " when John Lennon himself wrote and sung the following verse: ...the chicken was Faul.

The chicken is definitely on the song Scrambled Eggs.

I'll go ahead and post the next question.

In the song Two of Us, John and Paul sing about going back home. Where is back home for them?

Bit dark to think Paul sung about a goose while playing on a guitar that had to kill a goose to be made.

Why yes that is a picture of Paul dabbing. Deal with it.

Back Home is a reference to the England National Football Team's official World Cup song for Mexico 1970. It was written by Lennon-McCartney under a pseudonym and both Beatles were on the longlist for the squad. They were overlooked in favour of Peter Bonetti and Emlyn Hughes. For more information, please visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.....1970_song)

Back home they'll be saying they saw us at every venue played
Back home they will try to ignore us because we moved away.

How many times does Paul McCartney go back to the top of the slide in the twenty-seven minute version of Helter Skelter ?

Clearly this was pre-animal-rights Paul ahdn_george_06

Also, Tony Japanese never stated how the goose-stick guitar was made, or even if it were made of real goose, so it could well be a Thing called a Goose-Stick that has nothing to do with the slaughter of geese. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Tony Japanese asked

Twenty-seven times. He only did it twice when I played it in my dreams last night, I think I was interrupted by a galaxy or something. a-hard-days-night-george-4

What type of rain was falling down on the dirty ground of London Town when Paul was walking down the sidewalk on a purple afternoon?

Presuming you mean The Lark Ascending with reverb, the title speaks for itself.

What did John have for his tea on the day he met Paul?
